Sesame Chews

on August 11, 2013

I was trying to make something similar to sesame snaps, but I wanted to leave out the sugar.

They turned out… not so snappy.

But… they are still super tasty!  My five year old just asked for a third one!


Sesame seeds are little, but they are a nutritional powerhouse.  Add them to something!

They’re a good source source of calcium, copper, magnesium, iron, manganese, B-complex vitamins, zinc, fiber and protein.

Woo hoo!

What you’ll need…

  • 1/2c of raw sesame seeds
  • 2tbsp of raw nut or seed butter (we used peanut today)
  • 2tbsp of coconut nectar (or agave)
  • a pinch of cinnamon

Toss the ingredients into a bowl and get your hands in there.

Speaking from experience, have a parchment lined pie plate (or something similar) ready to go.

Squish it all together and roll yourself ten to twelve little balls of goodness.

Store in the freezer and enjoy!
