No Bake Tahini Bars

Firstly, in a food processor, I combined tahini, dates, chia seeds, hempseeds, flax meal, vanilla extract and orange extract. You may add orange zest instead of orange extract.

Secondly, I ground it well until a dough was formed and it was sticking to each other. In this step, I paused frequently to scrape the batter from all sides and grind again.

Thereafter, I removed the blade and folded in the chocolate chips.

Afterwards, I spooned it out in an 8-inch square pan (parchment paper attached to it) and shaped it with hands.

Next, I topped it with sesame seeds and placed flat in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

Then, I took out and lay it flat on the counter and gently pulled out the parchment paper along with the shaped dough. Lastly, I placed it on a cutting board and sliced.
