A No Bake recipe for Tahini Bars packed with superfoods.
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup pistachio nut meats
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1 tbls chia seeds
1 tbls hemp seeds
1 tbls maca powder (I get mine at Trader Joe’s)
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup dried blueberries (can use any dried fruits – dates and cherries also are delicious)
2 tbls coconut oil
1/2 cup tahini
1 tbls honey
1/8 tsp salt
Coarsely chop the nuts. Combine all seeds, nuts, and maca powder in a mixing bowl.
Coarsely chop dried fruits, or blend in a blender or food processor to make a sort of paste.
In a small pot, melt the coconut oil. Turn off the heat and add tahini and honey. Stir until smooth. Add dried fruit.
Pour mixture over nut and seed mixture and stir to coat.
Press into a parchment lined pan with the back of a wooden spoon. Grate lemon zest over the top as desired.
Freeze for about an hour. Cut into bars. Store leftovers in the refrigerator (these Tahini Bars will be crumbly and melty if left out).
Try using any combination of nuts or seeds. Try matcha instead of maca. Try dried dates or apricots in place of berries. Any combo will be delicious.
