  • Process oats, coconut, blueberries, cashews, sesame seeds, and flax seeds together in a food processor until evenly chopped.

  • Mix tahini, honey, and vanilla extract together in a bowl using an electric mixer. Mix tahini mixture into oat mixture using your hands until evenly moistened. Spread mixture onto the prepared baking sheet, forming a 1-inch high rectangle.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 1 hour.

Cook's Note:

Natural peanut butter or almond butter can be substituted for the tahini, if desired.

I purchased the “Perfect Brownie Pan” just for making these bars.
