Sesame Bars

Did you know sesame seeds can warm your body up when it’s cold?  Even after digestion both black and white sesame seeds generate heat.   It is common practice to massage the body with sesame oil in Ayurveda, especially in the winter months.

Antioxidant rich sesame seeds also boost vitamin E and produce phytic acid (to help rid the body of heavy metals).  “Sesamin” (the ingredient found in sesame oil) can inhibit the growth of cancerous tumors and lower cholesterol.

Cozy up to these sesame bars when it’s frosty outside:

· 2 cups raw walnut pieces (use as is, or grind them in a food processor with the dates until they become buttery)

· 1/4 cup mushed dates

· 1 cup raw white sesame seeds

· 1 cup dried cherries or cranberries

· 1/2 tsp sea salt or Himalayan rock salt

· 4 Tbsp raw coconut butter

Mix all ingredients by hand, press into a pan and cut, or form into balls and enjoy.
