Ingredients:

  • 2 cups raw walnuts
  • 1 cup raw white sesame seeds
  • 1 cup dried cherries
  • 1/2 tsp. coarse sea salt
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp honey

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325°.
  2. Spread walnut pieces on a baking sheet and toast in oven until walnuts just start to turn golden brown and smell slightly fragrant, about 15 minutes.
  3. Toast sesame seeds on a separate baking sheet for about 10 minutes (watch so seeds do not burn).
  4. Blend walnuts and cherries in a food processor or blender coarsely chopped.
  5. Add sesame seeds, salt, coconut oil, honey. Mix until well combined (the mixture should easily stay together when squeezed).
  6. Press into a baking sheet or pyrex dish, forming a layer approximately 1/2 inch thick. Refrigerate until completely cool, about 1 hour. Cut into squares and serve.
