Fresh Ginger, Walnuts and Sesame Seed Logs | © 2019 | | © 2019 |

Full of quality and tasty ingredients, these sesame logs with walnuts, oats and fresh ginger are easy to make and are perfect as a on the go energy snack, a sweet lunchbox filler, or as an afternoon pick-me-up without the refined sugar. Instead of logs, you can shape these into balls or bars if you prefer. Can't find Medjool dates? No problem. Just use regular deglet noor dates, which are equally delicious and sweet with a firmer texture. Medjool dates, by contrast, have a rich, almost caramel-like taste and a soft, chewy texture.

  • 120 g Walnuts, toasted
  • 45 g Rolled oats
  • 200 g Medjool dates, pitted and chopped
  • 1 tbsp Freshly grated ginger
  • 1/3 tsp Black salt
  • 50 g Sesame seeds, toasted
  1. Heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the walnuts to the hot, dry pan in a single layer. Cook, stirring frequently until the walnuts start to brown and they smell toasted, about 5 minutes. Transfer the walnuts to a plate or baking tray to cool completely.
  2. Process walnuts and oats in a food processor until finely chopped. Add in dates, ginger and salt. process until mixture forms a paste.
  3. Shape level tablespoons of mixture into 5cm long logs and place them on a baking-paper-lined tray. Chill for 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, stir sesame seeds in a frying pan over medium heat for 2 minutes or until lightly toasted. Cool. Roll logs in sesame seeds and chill for 1- 2 hours or until firm. | © 2019 | | © 2019 |

In my belly now! I see that one of the ingredients is 'black salt'- that's interesting. I've never heard of it before. Lucky for me, there's always plenty of Medjool dates near me (Adelaide, San Diego or NYC)!

GiGi Eats 13/10/19 14:38

These kind of remind me of when I was younger. When I used to hang out at my mom's office, sesame sticks would ALWAYS be there and I would totally eat at least 1/2 the package, ha! These are a lot smaller, but none-the-less remind me of back in the day!

judee 13/10/19 15:17
