  • ½ cup sesame tahini
  • 1 cup coconut flakes, macaroon-cut or fine-cut
  • 4 tablespoons raw honey (liquid or crystallized) or coconut nectar
  • 4 tablespoons sun-dried cane juice crystals or coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon ashwagandha extract powder (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon shilajit (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon dried, powdered tulsi leaves or holy basil powder (optional)
  • Few pinches of sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon chai spices (I use cardamom, cinnamon, black pepper, clove, and allspice)
  • 2 tablespoons black sesame seeds, or white sesame if no black sesame
  • ¼ cup dried cherries, pitted
  • ¼ cup green raisins
  • 1½ cups coconut flakes, macaroon-cut or fine-cut

How to Make It
  1. After processing the dough for the Ayurvedic Sesame Treats, except the black sesame seeds, add all the Fruity Sesame Turmeric Bites ingredients, and process again in the food processor. Add the black sesame seeds at the very end, and pulse a few times to incorporate.
  2. Press into a parchment-paper-lined 8 × 8-inch brownie pan, or roll into a ½-inch-thick dough between two sheets of parchment paper on a cutting board using a straight-sided glass or a rolling pin to evenly compact the dough. (You can also roll the dough into 1-inch balls.)
  3. Chill for 1 hour, then remove from parchment paper, place on a cutting board, and cut into cookie squares. Store chilled.
