Tahini Flapjack: FreeFrom & Vegan

Tahini Flapjack: FreeFrom & Vegan

Tahini flapjack? Yes! That lovely jar of sesame paste hiding at the back of your cupboard which you bought to make homemade houmous has a new use! πŸ™‚ I was looking for something which would bind oats together and decided that I’d see what I could come up with! With only four ingredients this flapjack is so simple and definitely a winner! It’s crunchy, wholesome, dairy free, gluten free (use certified GF oats) and full of goodness! Sesame seeds contain protein as well as calcium, copper, magnesium, zinc, manganese, iron,Β B vitamins, folic acid and omega-3 πŸ™‚ so a whole host of benefits from munching on this delicious dessert! πŸ˜€ It’s so easy to make and I’ve shown the amounts in tablespoons today rather than grams to make it even easier to put together! πŸ˜€ I’m sharing these at Deborah’s Plant Based Potluck Party πŸ™‚

    I have never bought tahini. I always just make my hummus without it! These sound interesting though and so healthy! If you have any posts you’d like to link, the Balanced & Healthy Living Party is going on until Wednesday and then beginning again on Thursday night. Hope you’ll stop by sometime & link up! http://www.heartfeltbalancehandmadelife.com/2016/02/balanced-healthy-living-link-up-party_25.html Have a great week!

      I usually just add a handful of sesame seeds to my houmous but at some point I must have thought I needed tahini! Yesterday I made something else very quick and delicious with the tahini… I should have taken photos before they all disappeared! πŸ˜› I’m working on a post which I’ll bring along on Thursday! πŸ™‚ Enjoy your week! πŸ™‚
