I put the following into a bowl:
1 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup almond meal (that is, slivered almonds I put in the food processor for a long time)
1/4 cup flax seeds
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/8 tsp. salt
(I had no other nuts, so that's all I used.)
I added some honey - maybe a little less than 1/2 cup? - and a touch of maple syrup. Stirred and smashed it all up.
Put 1 tsp. olive oil in a glass pan, wiped it all around, then smashed the sesame stuff into it.
Baked at 300 for 20 minutes or so.
After it cooled a bit, I cut it into bars. Let it sit until it cooled more. Then I took the bars out with a spatula, re-shaped them (because they fell apart) and turned them over on a cool sheet to dry.
They seem to be just wonderful - the right consistency and everything. Next time I might add a bit of olive oil to the mix, and will certainly add some other nuts if I have them.
