Calcium Filled Sesame Seed Treats

Whole sesame seeds contain about 88 mg of calcium per tablespoon of seeds. Just a quarter cup of natural sesame seeds provides more calcium than a whole cup of milk.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup almonds 
  • 1 cup dried apricots organic if possible
  • 3 tbsp almond butter or any other nut butter
  • ¼  cup sesame seeds + 3 tbsp
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon or cinnamon oil
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Directions

  • Put 1/4 cup of the sesame seeds in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Add almonds, dried apricots, almond butter, 3 tablespoons of sesame seeds, spices, and vanilla in a food processor or high-speed blender and process until the ingredients are well-combined. The mixture may appear crumbly, but it will hold together when you form balls.
  • Roll the mixture into small 1/2 inch balls or use an ice-cream spoon to do so, then roll the balls into the sesame seeds to coat.
  • Store in the refrigerator or freeze*.
