Hi! I am Rachel and A Small Cup of Sugar is my baking creation.

I began writing a cookbook to record my mother’s treasured recipes and in the process discovered my great passion for baking. Bringing together simple ingredients with the help of my Thermomix to create delicious food has become a love of mine. Whether it’s to nourish or indulge, you can find me in the kitchen preparing something to share with my family and friends.

I would love you to click on the logo and visit me at a Small Cup of Sugar.   I’m sure you will find a recipe or some baking inspiration.

Thinkfood Munch has a line of nut bars my family and I enjoy. I would often pop a bag or two of these into my grocery trolley as they make a healthy and tasty snack. The other day I discovered our snack supply had dwindled but I had an abundance of seeds and nuts in the pantry. I decided to have a go at making my own nut bar. The homemade nut bites ticked all of the boxes. They were so easy to make and significantly more economical. Best of all, they were equally moreish and crunchy even without adding any cane sugar.

What are Munchy Nut Bites?

Simply nuts and seeds coated in rice malt syrup and slow roasted to form crunchy, bite-sized, portable snacks. The nuts and seeds are packed with nutrients and healthy fats and the touch of sweetness is enough to satisfy the afternoon cravings. They’re a great snack because they’re relatively low in carbohydrates but rich in fats and protein, vegan-friendly, gluten free and fructose free.

Nut Bar Recipe Variations

The recipe only has two components; rice malt syrup and nuts and seeds, both of which can be varied to accommodate your preferences and what you have on hand.

  1. Honey or maple syrup can be used instead of rice malt syrup for a sweeter alternative. Maple syrup does not need to be warmed before adding the nuts and seeds.  It isn’t as thick and sticky as rice malt syrup however the end result will be a little more crumbly.
  2. Nuts & Seeds – You can use whatever nuts, seeds or combination of nuts and seeds you like.  Keep the quantity to approximately 3 cups. The smaller nuts and seeds help the bites to bind together. If you are just using larger nuts, such as whole almonds, cut some of them into smaller chunks. You can also add some dried fruit such as cranberries, sultanas or blueberries for some extra sweetness.

Recipe Notes
Cutting the bites when they have cooled but not completely set prevents them from crumbling.
Use a large kitchen knife and a firm chopping motion to cut into squares.
Bites can be stored at room temperature but they will be crunchier if stored in the refrigerator.

  2. Heather Waring says:

    They look delicious. Can the rice malt syrup be substituted for anything else?

    1. Julie Carlyle says:

      Hi Heather
      I’m sorry rice malt syrup is the best sweetener to use in the recipe It is important to bind the ingredients whilst providing sweetness. You should be able to find the product in most Coles or Woolworths shops.
