Preheat oven to 180°C.

Spray baking sheet with olive oil spray and cook and sprinkle some coconut flour on top to prevent rusks from sticking.

Place coconut oil in a medium sized cooking pot and allow to melt. Add cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla and gently simmer for 3 minutes on very low heat to allow spices to infuse.

Place eggs in a large mixing bowl. Using an electric beater, beat the eggs for 3 minutes on high speed until light and airy.

Add coconut oil mixture to eggs and continue to blend for 1 minute until thoroughly combined.

Sift almond flour, psyllium husk, and baking powder into a large mixing bowl.

Add pumpkin seeds, desiccated coconut and sesame seeds.

Add egg mixture to dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Use your hands to combine ingredients to form a thick dough. Knead lightly and then set aside for 5 – 10 minutes.

Break small pieces of the dough off and shape into rusks. I like to use the gap between my thumb and pointing finger to create the perfect shape.

Lay out each rusk onto greased and dusted baking sheet.

Bake at 180°C for 30 minutes, then remove from the oven.

Lower the temperature to 70°C and allow rusks to dry out for 1 hour, keeping oven door open slightly.

Cool on baking rack.

  2. Jaco De Bruyn says:

    This is a bad recipe, probably because of Food24’s formatting.
    How much seeds? 2 sesame seeds? How does that make sense?

  3. elani says:
