Cacao Sesame Treats


I love having a variety of snack foods to munch on throughout the day. This recipe is a great snacking recipe, as it’s sweet, crunchy, but not too heavy on the tummy. Before getting started, I recommend you soak about a cup of raw sesame seeds for about 12-14 hours. You will use them in this recipe, and the soaking does make a difference. I think you will find that this recipe will remind you of a coco crispy marsh mellow treat, but without the refined sugar and additives. Be sure to make several batches that you can store for a few days. It’s definitely an addicting raw food snack!

Cacao Sesame Treats
Ingredients.
1 cup soaked sesame seeds
1/4 cup to 1/3 cup raw cacao powder 1 T mesquite powder 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup shredded dried coconut couple drops chocolate flavored SweetLeaf liquid stevia drizzle agave nectar (optional)


Preparation.
Combine all ingredients together using "wet" sesame seeds. Mix real well by hand till all ingredients are well incorporated. Spread over dehydrator trays. Thickness should be that of crackers. Score mixture. Dehydrate for about 10 to 12 hours flipping over once halfway through dry time. Snacks should be slightly crisp with flavor. Store in an airtight container in the pantry or fridge.
