Chocolate And Sesame Bars, A Healthy Snack

Healthy Snacks Are Easy

Today is Sunday … What better day to prepare a healthy and tasty week worth of meals?

In my conversations with friends, I realize that the biggest doubts about healthy eating seem to be the snacks. Snacks here mean mid-morning and mid-afternoon pick-me-ups. These are the moments when we are the most tempted to reach for whatever is around.

The key to healthy snacking is preparation … make sure you have something with you so you don’t have to go to the corner deli…

I decided to make these bars that we all eat at home – my kids are big fans of my bars, especially if they have some form of chocolate – and I’ll share their recipe with you: chocolate, sesame and (many) seeds bars. Nutritious, tasty and easy to make.

Plus, they are vegan and gluten-free!

Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients

for a square 20 * 20 cm brownie pan sized

  • 10 medjool dates, pitted and cut into pieces
  • 125 grs of gluten-free oatmeal
  • 70 grs of sunflower seeds
  • 70 g of pumpkin seeds
  • 70 grs of ground almond
  • 55 g of linseed
  • 70 grs of melted (organic) coconut oil
  • 50 grs of tahini
  • 2 tablespoons coconut syrup
  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao
  • 1 tablespoon of lucuma
  • 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt

Method

Put all the ingredients in the food processor and blend until it looks like coarse sand.

Pour the preparation into the pre-lined pan and press down well until you have a smooth, compact layer.

Freeze for 30 minutes.

Take them out the pan and cut the bars as big or small as you like.

Keep the bars refrigerated, in a closed box, and eat throughout the week. They will last up to 5 days without a problem – except they won’t, they tend to disappear much faster!

You can also cut a few small cubes and use it as a granola, on top of yogurt.
