Protein Bar

I created this bar for my friend Jessica who wanted energy without too much sweetness. This natural protein bar boasts great minerals like selenium, zinc, and calcium. The combination makes a great energy and recovery bar.

Instructions
  1. Soak sesame seeds in water for 2-4 hours.
  2. Blend the sesame seeds and figs in food processor with the S-blade, then add sweetener and the remaining ingredients, mixing well until blended but chunky.
  3. Evenly roll out the mixture onto parchment-lined dehydrator trays (or cookie tray if using an oven) to 1/2 inch (1 cm) thickness.
  4. Dehydrate for 3 hours at 150°F (65°C) and then reduce heat to 115°F (45°C) for 3 more hours. If using an oven, bake at 150°F (65°C) for 2 hours. Be very careful not to overcook the seeds, or the nutritional value of the essential fats will be lost.
  5. Cool completely and cut into bars (with the paper left underneath for support) with a clean pair of kitchen scissors.
  6. Wrap bars individually or place them in a cookie tin and store in the fridge.
Recipe Notes

If you have a 12 cup food processor, you can double the recipe to increase the number of bars. Just ensure the ingredients are well mixed but have a chunky consistency.
