Sesame seeds are an often neglected superfood full of calcium, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. Not only that but they are great for hormonal health - and cheap too! This recipe is a variation of one from The Holistic Nutritionist. You can check out the original recipe HERE.
1 cup white sesame seeds
1/2 cup raw cacao powder (or regular cocoa if more suited to your budget)
1 Tbsp of honey + 10 drops chocolate Stevia *
3 Tbsp coconut oil or ghee
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Place all the ingredients into a food processor (or, if you melt the coconut oil prior, you could just hand mix).
Press into a baking paper lined loaf tin.
Place into the fridge to harden and then cut into desired sized squares.
* The original recipe had 4 tsp of honey. I didn't find that it was sweet enough (I like sweet things!) so I added a few drops of stevia and it was delicious. You could just use 2 Tbsp of honey or, if you are trying to avoid sugar, you can use 20 drops stevia instead of the honey, but the honey tastes nice.
