How to make Raw & Gluten Free Sesame Goji Berry Bars

Updated on November 2, 2010

I found after begining my raw food lifestyle I wanted to experiment with making raw energy bars, but they were not as satisfying as I thought they might be.  Each time I tried a new recipe something seemed to be missing, and then I stumbled upon a basic gluten free recipe that has a great taste and then I added a few ingredients to give the energy bars a sweet kick and now I have a very satisfying energy bar that keeps me going.

What you need:

1/2 cup of sesame seeds

1 cup of walnuts (or 1/2 walnuts 1/2 pecans)

1  1/2 cup pitted dates

1 1/2 cup raisins ( or 1 cup raisins 1/2 cup of dried cranberries)

1/2 cup of Goji berries

pinch of salt

Mix all ingredients in a food processor until mixture hold together when pressed

If the mixture seems dry you can put a 1/2  to 1 teaspoon of water or lemon juice (I like lemon juice for flavor)

Press mixture into 9 inch square pan and chill.  Then cut into squares to serve.  Each square should be approximately 2"x2" and would make 16 servings. 

Squares will keep up for a few days in refrigerator or a few weeks in the freezer.

Sometimes after I have pressed the mixture into a pan I sprinkle a tablespoon or two of raw carob nibs on top for a crunchy chocolate taste.
