Tahini oat bars

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!

Ingredients:IMG_5792

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

 

How to:

  1. 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!
  2. Line a tray with parchment paper and spread the mixture evenly.
  3. Refrigerate overnight and in the morning cut into 8-10 bars.
