For 12 pieces
  • 75 g almonds (unsalted) (preferably toasted => gives more flavour)
  • 75 g hazelnuts (unsalted) (preferably toasted => gives more flavour)
  • 30 g sunflower seeds
  • 20 g grated coconut
  • 40 g Zùsto
  • Pinch of coarse sea salt
  • 70 g 100 % peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • 1 baking pan measuring approximately 20×20 cm 
  • Baking paper
  • 2 mixing bowls

Preparation method

  1. Line the baking pan with baking paper and preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Chop the nuts into pieces (fairly finely), you could also use a chopper, but be careful not to crumble them.
  3. Put the nuts together with the sunflower seeds, grated coconut, Zùsto and salt in a mixing bowl. Mix with a spoon.
  4. Take another mixing bowl. Beat the egg in it and add the peanut butter (if it’s hard, warm it very briefly in the microwave so that it becomes more runny). Beat with a whisk until homogeneous and add the vanilla extract.
  5. Now add the wet ingredients to the dry ones and mix with a spatula until you get a sticky ensemble.
  6. Pour it onto the baking paper and press firmly until you get a flat cake about 1.5 cm thick.
  7. Bake in the oven for 12 to 15 minutes until the edges and top begin to turn golden brown.
  8. Allow to cool completely and then cut the large cake into equal pieces.

About Yasmine Marchal

Hi, I’m Yasmine from the pastry blog Tartes Yaya. As well as running my blog, I work full time as an IT project manager. Baking is my creative outlet, but I also enjoy sports (jogging, hiking, aerial dance and horse riding).

I’m mum to an 8 year old boy, Ilyas, and a 6 year old girl, Fatou. In August 2018, Ilyas was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (an autoimmune disease that is not caused by eating too much sugar… just to clarify that! ;)).Even though a type 1 diabetic can eat whatever they want and don’t have to follow a special diet, their body has greater difficulty in processing real sugars because the body is not able to produce insulin itself or manage insulin spikes properly.

My son’s diabetes led me to discover Zùsto and since then, Zùsto has been my favourite sugar substitute!
