Superfood Sesame Bars

These superfood sesame bars are super healthy, completely sugar, grain and gluten free and packed with delicious wholesome ingredients. This recipe was inspired by ‘the raw bloodie’ recipe in Sarah Brittons gorgeous recipe book ‘My New Roots’. I love her delicious and healthy plant based recipes. I would definitely recommend her recipe book if you haven’t seen it before.

My version uses mixed nuts instead of just walnuts and I have also added sesame seeds, figs and my secret ingredient tahini, which gives these superfood sesame bars an amazing sweet and slightly savoury flavour, which I love.

Like Sarah I’ve added maca and lacuma to give these bars an extra nutritional boost but it’s entirely optional. Lacuma does add some sweetness so if you’re not using it I would add a couple of tbsp maple syrup or honey (taste the mix and see if it needs some extra sweetness).

These bars are perfect for breakfast on the go or a post workout boost. In fact Andy has just come back from teaching his kids martial arts class and has just wolfed down two!

  None cook time


  • 1 cup mixed nuts
  • 1 tbsp maca – I use organic burst
  • 2 tbsp lacuma
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 1 cup medjool dates
  • 1/4 cup figs
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs
  • 1 tbsp tahini


  1. Add your nuts to your food processor and blitz until you get a crumb, then add the maca, lacuma and salt. Blitz again for a second or so.
  2. Add the dates, figs, and tahini blend again until everything comes together into a sticky crumb.
  3. Pop in the cacao nibs and sesame seeds and blitz again.
  4. Test that the mix is sticky enough by pressing a little together in your fingers. If the mix doesn’t stick together add a few more dates and blitz again.
  5. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and add the mix, pressing the mix down firmly.
  6. Chill for 2-3 hrs and then cut into squares.
