Sesame Peanut Bars

Sesame Peanut Bars


Non-stick cooking spray
1-1/4 cups black and white sesame seeds
3/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/4 cup salted roasted peanuts
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil and grease with non-stick cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine the sesame seeds, coconut, peanuts and salt. Whisk together the honey, peanut butter and vanilla extract in a small bowl and stir into the sesame seed mixture. Transfer to the prepared baking pan and spread into an even layer. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown at the edges. Cool completely until firm and cut into 16 bars.
