When my acupuncturist said that I needed to start incorporating black sesame into my daily diet I was initially all “No problem, I’ll sprinkle those suckers on everything!”  And then she clarified:  I need to eat at least a tablespoon of them a day, toasted and ground, a little honey for sweetener.  A consummate over achiever I of course developed a recipe for tasty snack bars to make the tablespoon a day go down with a happy face.  And man, I’m so glad I did- they’re crazy good!  An aside:  If you’re interested in these sorts of things, read about the health benefits of black sesame here.  If you prefer the short and sweet of it, here it is: black sesame seeds are crazy good for you and MAY TURN YOU INTO A UNICORN!  I know!!!!!  So, do yourself a favor.  Make these bad boys.  Then eat them.  You will be so happy you did!

And because it’s the internet, and people be crazy googling shit like “how to turn into a unicorn” I think I should state that I am not a medical professional or scientist, the above post is based on my personal experience only. *Seriously, start typing “how to turn into a unicorn” in your google search bar and see what other seraches pop up as options, it’s pretty great!)   xx- Sarah  {more after the jump}
