CNY 2015 - Sunflower Melon Seed Crisps

I baked Kuih Bangkit and remembered that Soke Hah had a recipe where I could use up some of the remaining egg whites. Found this recipe of hers to make this crispy biscuit.
Sorry Soke Hah, I have to replace pumpkin seeds with melon seeds cos' I have these available and not thinking of buying too much baking ingredients until I have finished using up those that I have in hand.
Easy and quick to prepare and bake. The difficult part is just the spreading of the batter before baking. Otherwise, the mixing and baking is easy and quick.

Recipe for Pumpkin Sunflower Crisps [here]
[makes about 50-60 crisps]
2 egg whites about 60 gm - lightly beaten
80 gm caster sugar
2 tbsp or 1 oz melted butter
50 gm plain flour
75 gm pumpkin kernels [I used melon seeds]
75 gm sunflower seeds
1/4 tsp vanilla

  1. Sift flour into a mixing bowl, add in sugar, mix well.  Add in the seeds.
  2. Make a well in the centre, add in the melted butter, lightly beaten egg whites and vanilla. Mix till well combined.
  3. Leave batter to rest for 30 minutes.
  4. Drop 1 level tsp of batter onto a parchment lined baking tray. Using the back of the spoon spread thinly to any shape taking care not to overlap the seeds.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 degrees C for 8 to 10 minutes on middle rack [taking care not to over-bake].
  6. Let cool in tray for a while before transferring onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. Store crisps in an air-tight cookie jar.

Kimmy, these look really good! So crispy and crunchy. I have been wanting to try these too but I might end up eating a lot of it hah..hah...

Hi Victoria, I saw this recipe of Soke Hah's last year and I remembered telling her I will try this recipe to use up the egg whites leftover from making Kuih Bangkit. These are really crispy.

Kimmy said...

Hi Phong Hong, these are rather addictive and a good snack while watching TV. From this recipe, I managed to make only a bottle with some leftovers. The leftovers were finished quickly. I gave away the other bottle to my Dad's cardiologist cos' I can't eat too much of this due to sensitive teeth. Next year, I will make more to share.

Good morning Kim,
Just look at the picture,I know this must be very crispy and addictive.

Kimmy said...

Hi Karen, yes a piece is never enough. My hubby finished several pieces is one go. If not for my sensitive teeth, I would have eaten more than him and won't give away the one bottle that I have,hah, haha!

Kimmy said...

Hi Esther, addictive I agree fully. Next year I will use all the egg whites that I have from making Kuih Bangkit to make these, maybe substituting with other nuts.

Kimmy said...

Hi Aunty Young, these are thin and crispy. Not too sweet but has buttery fragrance too.

Fion said...

Really thin and crispy!

Zoe said...

Hi Kimmy,

It must be difficult to stop nibbling these thin crispy nutty treats. Yum!


Kimmy said...

Hi Fion, these are really thin and crispy but it does not break that easily. I like the taste.

Kimmy said...

Hi Zoe, if not for my sensitive teeth, I think I can eat lots of these cos' the seeds are crispy and tasted good.

Baby Sumo said...

I had so much egg whites left the other day, end up jus make omelette hahah! But these look good.

Kimmy said...

Hi Yen, I was happy to know this recipe from Soke Hah [No Frills]. Next year, I'll bake with different seeds or nuts to use up the egg whites.
