.super sesame bars.

once i had a taste for those amazing green kitchen stories hemp protein bars [recipe here], i went on the hunt for another type of treat that i could have on hand for those mid-day cravings. that's when i  found their super sesame bars, which turned out to be the perfect snack.
they are surprisingly sweet for a super nutritious bar, filled with lots of goodies like super berries and walnuts, but filling enough that just one little square hits the spot. they have been a huge hit over with us treb's, minus the little guy. he's still a bit too young ;)
Super Sesame Bars
[via green kitchen stories. Makes around 18 bars]
1 1/2 cups walnuts
1 cup sesame seeds [you can also use half unhulled and half hulled]
1/3 cup goji berries
1/2 cup dried super berries [such as aronia, inca, mulberries or unsweetened cranberries]
4 tbsp honey or maple syrup
3 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1 tsp salt
1] Lightly toast the walnuts in a large saucepan on low heat for a few minutes. Transfer them to a food processor and blitz into a coarse flour. 
2] Add the sesame seeds to the sauce pan, make sure the heat is low as the sesame seeds are very heat sensitive - you want to lightly toast them without burning.
3] Meanwhile, add all the berries to the food processor. Pulse for at least a minute, then pour everything into the sauce pan. Add honey, coconut oil, shredded coconut and salt and stir around until everything is combined, sticky and warm.
4] Cover a 8x10-inch [20x25cm] baking dish with parchment paper and pour the sesame mixture into it. Flatten it out with your fingers and the backside of a spoon [dip it in water to prevent the sesame seeds from sticking to it]. Put in the fridge for at least an hour, then cut them up and wrap in sandwich paper.
