Sesame Bars

A super simple, no-bake power snack from DK’s Low Carb on the Go.

Whether you need a 10.30am tide over, or a post-lunch treat, these heart-healthy bars packed with nuts and seeds are the perfect quick fix. Plus, with just ten minutes prep time, you can’t go wrong. 

Sesame Bars


  • 15g fine oat flakes
  • 75g pitted dates
  • 10g ground almonds
  • 10g flaked almonds
  • 20g white sesame seeds
  • 30g cashew butter


Lightly toast the oats in a dry pan while you blend the dates in a food processor.

Use your hands to knead the oats, processed dates, almonds, sesame seeds and cashew butter to create a dough.

Place on a sheet of baking paper, cover with a second sheet and roll out to a thickness of approximately 5mm using a rolling pin.

Cut into 6 bars and let these firm up in the fridge. These will keep in a container in the fridge for at least 10 days.
