  • 250g Konjac Rice (1 pack)
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1tbs grated ginger (fresh/ frozen/ from the jar)


  1. Prepare the rice as per instructions on the packet.
  2. Mix rice, almonds, walnuts, dates, coconut, sunflower seeds and ginger in a food processor and blend until it forms a sticky consistency.
  3. Line a baking tray with baking paper and spread the mixture evenly over the tray. Pat down with fingers or a spatula.
