Improved Healthier Sweet Sesame Crackers

These Sweet Sesame Crackers are a right spin-off from the healthy Nut and Seed Break posted a couple of weeks back. It is my sincere intent to dedicate this recipe to all of you who tried out my previous recipe of Healthy Sweet Sesame Crackers. This time it is a true crunch in the sweet cracker - the way it is suppose to be:

Improved Healthier Sweet Sesame Crackers
1dl unhulled sesame seeds
10 soft pitted dates

Preheat the oven to 175ºC/350ºF and line a 14x21cm/5.5x8inch baking dish with baking paper. Mix the dates in a food processor until forming a paste. Transfer the date paste to a small baking bowl. Add the sesame seeds and combine well with the dates using a large spoon. Transfer the sticky mix to the lined baking dish. Press the mix with your hands or a large spoon until the bottom of the dish is covered.

Bake in the oven for 15min. Turn off the oven, take out the Sesame Seed Cracker and close the oven door. Cut the big cracker 5 times vertically to get 6 rectangular crackers. Return the crackers to the oven and leave to dry until the oven has cooled down.

If you do not have the exact sized baking dish calling for in the recipe, use a normal sized baking tray instead and form the sesame and date mix to any preferable form approx. 3-5mm thick.

These Improved Even Healthier Sesame Crackers are a real healthy nibble. I would advice you to double the recipe and keep the crackers in a glass jar at home or/and at work to always have a healthy snack in hand. My husband loves these and eats them all before I even have had a chance to place them in a jar. I guess that says it all. Enjoy!
