Hubby and I both love sesame seeds and enjoyed them this new way. Only drawback is that they seemed pretty lean on sesame seeds. Next time I'm going to add 1 cup and see how they turn out. It might take some tweaking but I'm hoping they'll have more sesame flavor. Read More

The doctor told me that sesame seeds are a very good source of calcium- a tablespoon a day is what he recommended. This recipe is a delicious way to incorporate them into your diet! Be careful not to overcook so that the bars turn out moist. I added raisins too. Fantastic! Read More

It wasn't what I was expecting but it still tasted good. The only thing I changed/added was cashew nuts. Since the cashew nuts were salted I omitted the salt from the recipe. Read More

Not too bad but not what I expected. I think I would have like the cookies rolled in the toasted sesame seeds as opposed to the seeds being IN the cookie. Read More

Excellent bars! Very easy and quick to make. I followed the recipe adding a sprinkle of powdered sugar to the finished product. They are very reminiscent of a peanut butter bar. Enjoyed by all. Read More
