  • Prepare a 6 inch or an 8-inch square pan by sticking a parchment paper to it. (To make sure the parchment paper does not move while shaping the dough, grease the pan first and then stick the parchment paper to it).
  • In a food processor, combine tahini, dates, chia seeds, hempseeds, flax meal, vanilla extract, orange extract or orange zest.
  • Grind it until a dough like consistency forms. Pause at intervals to scrape from all sides with a flat spatula. Test its stickiness by picking a small amount of the dough and try to bind it in a dough with your hand. If it sticks to each other without crumbling or falling apart, its ready.
  • Remove the blade of the food processor and fold in the chocolate chips. You may also spoon out the dough in a mixing bowl and then fold in chocolate chips. Mix it roughly with a flat spatula.
  • Spoon it out into the prepared pan and shape it with your hands by gently pressing from all sides. Make sure its firm and sticking to each other from all sides. Sprinkle its top with sesame seeds and place it flat in the refrigerator for about 2 hours.
  • Take it out of the refrigerator and place the pan on a flat surface. Gently, pull out the parchment paper along with the set dough. Place it on a flat working counter and slice with a sharp knife. Enjoy!


  • The thickness of the bars will depend on the size of your pan.
  • This recipe makes 9 thick slices and the serving size is 1 bar per person.
  • Refrigerate the leftovers in an air tight glass container for about 1 month.
