  • Sesame Nut and Fruit Bars

    My sweetie found this recipe in a magazine, and thought it would fit the PB food guidelines that I am following.

    They are pretty tasty...

    2 cups raw walnut pieces
    1 cup raw white sesame seeds
    1 cup dried tart cherries
    1/2 tsp. coarse sea salt
    4 Tbsp. raw coconut butter
    3 Tbsp. dark unprocessed honey.

    1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
    2. Line an 8" x 8" baking pan with parchment paper.
    3. Spread the walnut pieces on a rimmed baking sheet and toast in oven, shaking the pan frequently, until the nuts just start to turn brown and become fragrant, ~ 15 minutes. Then, pull them from the oven and set them aside to cool.
    4. Repeat the process with the sesame seeds for ~ 10 minutes in the oven. Remove them and allow to cool.
    5. Place walnuts and cherries in a food processor, and blend until they start to clump together and form a slightly sticky mass.
    6. Remove the walnut and cherry mixture, and combine it with all the other ingredients. Mix well by hand.
    7. Place the mixture in the 8" x 8" baking dish, and press into a layer ~ 1/2" thick.
    8. Refrigerate until cool, ~ 1 hour.
    9. Cut into squares and serve. Store remaining pieces in the refrigerator.
