Fig and Sesame Bliss Bites
Sweet and chewy, these tasty bites are a satisfying on-the-go snack that could double as dessert. Tahini and toasted sesame seeds provide a contrast of smoothness and crunchiness, while figs add a burst of sweetness.
- [30 grams] ¼ cup sesame seeds
- [70 grams] ½ cup dried Mission figs, chopped into ¼-inch pieces
- [95 grams] 1 cup rolled oats

- [50 grams] 2 tablespoons tahini
- [60 grams] 2 tablespoons (30 milliliters) honey
- [<1 gram] ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- [15 grams] 2 tablespoons nonfat dry milk
- Line the bottom of a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. In a 6-inch skillet, toast sesame seeds over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally with a spatula until lightly browned. Let cool for about 10 minutes.
- In a medium-sized bowl, combine sesame seeds, figs, oats, almond butter, tahini, honey, cinnamon and dry milk. Using a large spoon, stir until all ingredients are combined.
