Walnut and Honey Treats

These are quite unusual because normally I don't use honey (I am not that keen on honey). I find however that it fits perfectly with the sesame seeds. These treats are packed with goodness such as healthy fats, Omega 3 fatty acids, a special type of protective fat the body cannot manufacture, calcium, fibre, protein, antioxidants and iron. I always serve them slightly chilled as otherwise they tend to become too soft. I also love these as a frozen treat. These are especially good for your heart.

You will find carob powder and acacia honey in most health food stores. You can use cocoa powder and pure maple syrup instead.
