What do I love about tahini? Well, everything: its taste, texture, versatility, its nutritional benefits (high in vitamins E, B1,B2,B3,B5, minerals, calcium, iron, magnesium, to name a few). It is also a good source of plant based protein. So, go ahead and use it in your meals; as a dressing, in smoothies, in bars or balls!
These bars are high in protein due to the tahini, chia seeds and nuts as well as fibers due to the oats. So, a perfect snack!
1/4 cup almonds, chopped
1/4 cup cashews or peanuts, chopped
1.5 cup oats
3 tbsp tahini
3 tbsp agave syrup
1/2 cup raisins
2 tbsp water
- Place all ingredients in the blender and blend until well combined. If the mixture doesn’t stick together, then add more water – but be careful not to over do it!
- Line a tray with parchment paper and spread the mixture evenly.
- Refrigerate overnight and in the morning cut into 8-10 bars.
