My kids absolutely love the sesame bars from the shops, so I came up with a healthier version that they love just as much. I added the chia and hemp seeds for some more nutritional value, but you could easily leave out and put more sesame seeds in if you’d prefer.

Ingredients (makes 32 squares - approx)

  • 1.5 cups Sesame Seeds
  • 1/4 cup Chia Seeds
  • 1/4 cup Hemp Seeds
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Sugar
  • 1/3 cup Honey
  • 1.5 Tbsp Tahini
  • Pinch Salt


  1. Preheat oven to 160°C (fan forced).
  2. Toast sesame seeds in frypan until just starting to brown.
  3. Remove from heat, add rest of ingredients and stir/fold quickly and carefully until everything is well mixed.
  4. Put into lined tray (approx 31cm x 21cm or a large square tray), bake at 160° fan forced for around 10-15 minutes.
  5. Cool completely, cut into squares. Enjoy!

  • thanks for sharing a healthy treat


  • Oh yum these look so good and from the look at the ingredients are healthy! Thanks for sharing so great.


  • Oh my kids love these also! I’ll have to give your recipe a try.


  • sounds like a winner although not sure where to get hemp seeds from.


  • Prepare of all of the seeds to get stuck in your teeth! Do not eat before going out haha


  • Snacks are my favourite meal. :) Will have to try these.


  • These look cute and healthy. Thanks for the recipe.


  • wonderful alternative to muesli bars and the sugary sesame bars from the shops. thank you


  • My hubby started diet and I think that will be a perfect snack for him.


  • Perfect after school snack. Great to see some healthy options on offer fir kids


  • Oh yum, I LOVE sesame seeds ! I prefer not to bake with honey though. Basically, the hotter you heat honey, the more potential for reducing nutritional value. Excessive heat can have detrimental effects on the nutritional value of honey. Heating up to 37°C (98.6 F) causes loss of nearly 200 components, part of which are antibacterial.


  • These sound delicious, they look so easy to make too! Thanks!


  • This can make as balls too.


  • I’m sure I would love these (but I’m not sure about the partner- he balks at the word ‘healthy’). I do like chia seeds, and love sesame bars.


  • A simple way to make sesame bars and know exactly what’s in them.
