I know, you know, we both know ... that it's better not to eat sweets. And we both know that when we blow our last breath, we won't be sorry for all the sweets we ate in our life.
Having that said, I always opt for something that's the least "bad". Meaning I read the ingredients and go for the coconut blossom sugar, or something that sweetened with dates.
And at the moment my preference goes out to making things myself. I'm experimenting with a coconut milk based cheesecake for instance, which I haven't got fully down yet. As soon as, you will see it in here.
What I have figured out how to make without burning it is a crunchy sesame bar. I am addicted to sesame at the moment. And the interesting thing is, that I felt naturally drawn to eat lots of it lately, and shortly after my new sesame craving I visited my naturopath in which she adviced me to eat more of this.
Down to the super easy and healthier bar.
Spread out the baking paper and squeeze rice sirup on there. Add a bunch of sesame seeds and mix these with the rice sirup. Fold the paper so that none of the contents can leak out. This happened to me a few times, this is not fun :-)
Put the package in a 10 minute pre-heated oven at 150 degrees. Heat for about 15 minutes. How this turns out depends on your oven. Some are quicker than others. So if you're not sure how long is the best, than first start with 10 minutes and check the colour of the sesame seeds and the texture of the sirup. What happens is that it will start to bubble, that is good :-)
When it's done heating, take it out of the oven and let it cool off. Which will take about 5 minutes, after that you can soothe your sweet tooth.
I hope you'll love it.
