Chewy Sesame Seed Bars


Chewy Sesame Seeds Bars

Superfood sesame seeds, hemp hearts, and sunflower seeds are combined with creamy sesame paste and salty-sweet peanut butter in these wholesome, easy to prepare chewy sesame seed bars.
These nutrient-dense bars have become one of my favorite snacks to prepare. They cover all the bases of my snack requirements: chewy, crunchy, salty, sweet, and nutritious. And they do a fine job of keeping me away from the sweets at work every afternoon.
Customize these bars to your liking by changing out any nut or fruit you like! Chia seeds, hazelnuts, dried pineapple or cherries would also be lovely additions.
Whip up a batch in 10 minutes, freeze to harden, and store leftovers in the fridge so they are ready at a moment's notice. Whether it's for a pre-or post-workout energy boost, breakfast on-the-go, or to satisfy that 3 o'clock snack craving, these bars are the golden ticket.
Weekly game plan: make a batch of these hemp, fruit-and-nut-packed energy bars. Reach for one any time snack cravings strike. Repeat as often as necessary.
Simple as that!

  • 1 cup almonds, or walnuts
  • 1/2 cup dates, soaked at least 30 minutes and drained
  • 1/2 cup peanut (or any nut or seed) butter
  • 1/4 cup tahini (sesame seed paste) or more nut butter
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup hemp hearts (seeds)


  • Line a loaf pan 8 x 4” or similar sized dish with parchment paper on the bottom and sides leaving some overhanging to act as a handle to get the bars out easier for cutting.
    Place almonds into a food processor and process until broken down and crumbly. Add dates and continue to process until mixture is well combined.
    Place the nut butter, tahini and coconut oil into a medium saucepan and gently heat until melted. Add all dry ingredients to the saucepan – blended almond/date mixture, sunflower, sesame, pumpkin and hemp seeds and mix with a wooden spoon until well combined - (this saves having to wash another bowl).
    Transfer the mixture to your lined pan and press down firmly and evenly. Place in the fridge for an hour or two to firm up, then remove and cut into small squares or bars or any desired size.
