- Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Butter a regular glass baking dish and line with parchment paper, leaving a generous overhang on all sides.
- Mix sesame, poppy seeds, coconut, peanuts, and salt in a large bowl. Mix maple syrup, peanut butter, and vanilla in a small bowl. Add to sesame seed mixture and mix well.
- Scrape mixture into prepared baking dish and press firmly into an even layer. Bake until golden brown around the edges, 20–25 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool until firm, 30–40 minutes. Lift out of baking dish (if it starts to crumble, let cool longer) and cut into 16 bars. Let cool completely.
