vanilla seed lunchbox biscuits | recipe

These melt-in-your-mouth biscuits need to go straight to the top of your must-try baking recipes! Nut-free, egg-free and sugar-free, they are a perfect match for the lunchbox!

Inspired by a recipe I found by TRTLMT (The Road To Loving My Thermomix), I made a few changes to make it sugar-free, and adapted it for non-thermomix users. Great to freeze for easy, on the go snacks and lunchbox packing! 


  • 50g sunflower seeds
  • 50g pepita seeds
  • 1 tbs flaxseeds (or chia seeds)
  • 1 cup plain wholemeal flour
  • 120g butter
  • 2 tbs honey
  • 2 tbs vanilla bean paste
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • Pinch salt


  1. Preheat oven to 170 degrees
  2. Put seeds into a food processor and blitz on high until it makes a fine powder
  3. Add remaining ingredients and mix until it forms a dough
  4. Roll into balls and place on a greased tray, leaving space between the biscuits for spreading. Press gently with a fork to flatten slightly
  5. Bake for approximately 12-15 minutes or until slightly brown (watch them at the end, and make sure you don't overbake!)
