Sesame Seed Bars and the Powers of Zinc (Dairy, Gluten, Grain and Refined Sugar Free)

I love sesame seeds as they are high in calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc.   I believe I have mentioned the importance of zinc in a previous post.  Zinc not only boosts our immune systems, supports or reproductive system, increases focus, elevates mood and influences our appetite.   Hmm that is a lot of power for a little seed.  For some extra zinc in your diet, I highly recommend these bars, they easy to make and are a family favourite.

  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 cup sunflower seed butter, peanut butter, almond butter or other nut/seed butters
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • 1 1/3 cup coconut
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

  1. Grease a 9 x 9 dish.
  2. In a medium size pot, add honey, nut/seed butter and coconut oil.  Slowly heat, while stirring and bring to a boil.
  3. Add all remaining ingredients
  4. Pour into prepared dish and place in fridge to cool and set.
  5. Cut into bars and store in air-tight contained in the fridge.
