Healthier Rusks

I’m excited because my parents are driving up to visit this weekend.  So in preparation I’ve been baking a bit to have some snacks and treats in the house.  

I like these rusks because they are yummy with tea and coffee and they are not too unhealthy…  

You will need:

3 large eggs
500mls buttermilk
60mls sunflower oil
5mls vanilla essence
1 grated apple
100g sunflower seeds
100g pumpkin seeds

1 and a half cups cake flour
1 and a half cups Nutty wheat
3 teaspoons baking powder
half a cup brown sugar
half teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
half cup desicated coconut
half cup Jungle oats
half cup crushed All Bran flakes


Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. 
Beat together eggs, buttermilk, oil and vanilla essence.
Add grated apple and the pumpkin&sunflower seeds.
In another bowel, mix dry ingredients together. Add the egg mixture to the dry mixture.
Pour mixture into oven tray.
Bake for 45 mins at 180 degrees Celsius. (or until a clean knife comes out clean.)
Allow to cool.
Cut into pieces.
Place rusks on a baking tray at 100 degrees Celsius for 8 hours until dry.
