Chocolate Sesame Raw Bars

Chocolate Sesame Raw Bars are packed with protein, healthy fats and minerals such as calcium, iron and zinc. They are just sweet enough to satisfy a sweet tooth and are the perfect afternoon "pick me up" with a cup of tea. 

They are also a good option for when you arrive home famished after a long day and you still need to cook dinner. Snacking on one of these will help tide you over so you can prepare a healthy meal. All the ingredients in Chocolate Sesame Raw Bars are also Whole Health DETOX approved.

Because these bars are packed with nutrient dense seeds and nut butters, it is best to limit yourself to one bar a day if you are watching your weight.
Chocolate Sesame Raw Bars
2 cups sesame seeds
½ cup ground milk thistle seeds or flax seeds
1 ¾ cups shredded coconut (unsweetened)
½ cup agave nectar
¼ cup almond butter or sunflower seed butter

¼ cup raw cocoa powder
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Power Up your 2019 with these Power Bowl Recipes
