What is tahini? I asked myself as I found this recipe on Bob’s Red Mill website.  And I still didn’t know what it was, until I went to the grocery store and looked at the ingredients on a jar of tahini.  Sesame seeds.  Kind of like a seed butter.  And I was intrigued.  So much so that I bought the jar, came home and made these straight away.  And fell in love with them.

They are so much a different taste than my normal peanut butter everything.  Which is why I love them.  Add to the fact that there’s no refined sugar, no dairy and good whole grains, they are practically begging you to make them.  Ok, I’m begging you to make them.  And let me know how you go!
