Sesame Seed Bars

✓ Gluten-Free
✓ Dairy-Free

These sesame bars come together so easily, only require a handful of ingredients and make a wonderful light snack, breakfast bar for on the road or an easy lunchbox addition. They’re also a nice way to sneak calcium rich sesame seeds into your diet. Almonds are also a rich source of calcium and are rich in healthy fats and protein. Due to their high calcium content, these are great for our bones and are nourishing for both kids and adults. For a nut-free version, use pumpkin seeds in place of almonds. For a vegan version use maple syrup instead of honey.
