I love creating healthy treats that do not sacrifice the flavor.
I find using whole ingredients, without the preservatives, food colorings, added sugars, and other refined and processed ingredients, makes the final recipe taste that much more amazing and clean.
I am so much more appreciative of homemade creations.

I chose sesame seeds for a reason.
Other than I thought it would pair well with almond butter!
