I love easy to make nutritious snacks. Homemade snacks are always a winner in my mind as you know exactly what is in them! No need to worry about hidden additives, poor quality oils and refined sugars.

These healthy carob and tahini seed bars are full of protein, healthy fats and fibre. They can help provide kids with sustainable energy without the stimulating effects of cacao or chocolate.

These bars are naturally sweetened with dates which also gives them a fudgy consistency and some extra added nutrients and fibre.

Have you ever tried carob? It has a subtle flavour that isn’t as strong as cacao or chocolate but I actually quite like it, carob has a mild malty flavour and a natural sweetness.

It isn’t bitter at all so it is perfect for kids and doesn’t need additional sugar to balance out the flavour.

When I was younger I loved carob buttons or carob bars, there was something about them that was so creamy, sweet and satisfying, I would sometimes choose carob over chocolate!

Carob doesn’t contain caffeine so this makes it a great alternative to raw cacao, chocolate or cocoa powder to add in to baking or smoothies for kids or if you are just sensitive to caffeine. You will get the sweet hit but without the stimulating effects that can you can get from cacao.

The tahini I have added in these bars adds to the texture and slightly to the flavour of them although it is very subtle. Tahini is a good dairy free form of calcium so if you have a dairy intolerance adding tahini into your diet can be an easy way to bump up your calcium levels.
