    canthelpmyself's Note:

    This is possibly the most nutritious sweet treat in the world. A delicious rich melt in the mouth halva. Great for babies and children. Sesame seeds are the highest source of calcium (975gms per 100gms -9 times that of whole milk-), high in iron (14.55grams -grain fed beef mince has only 1.99grams-) an almost equal amount of protein to beef and numerous other nutrients. This has become a staple in our house and the combinations are endless. I like to mix in chopped pistachios. You can use other things such as prunes, date paste, dried cherries, apricots, coconut, cocoa powder or other nuts and flavourings. you can add more dates if you prefer it sweeter. You could also try using tahini to make it easier.

    1. 1
      process the sesame seeds for until a paste consistency, scrapping down the sides as required. This may take several minutes. If your machine gets warm (you don't want the paste getting too warm) just take a break and let it cool a bit. Now you have your own fresh tahini.
    2. 2
      Add the finely chopped dates (can use date paste here, I make my own date paste when I'm motivated so I've got it there for later) and vanilla and process scrapping down the sides until the dates are incorporated and the halva is a thick grainy paste. At this stage you take it out and mix by hand any additions you would like.
    3. 3
      Press it into a suitable container, preferably a shallow one and put it in the fridge, it's now ready to eat as is but it will firm up nicely overnight. Once it's set I like to tip it onto a plate and cut chunks off like cheese. Will keep in the fridge for a while.

      Thank you so much! This is super. I have always enjoyed Halva and we are on a limited diet due to allergies. We added a little pinch of honey (as we do not follow a vegan diet) and followed the recipe to a tee otherwise. Super! Our three year old thanks you heartily. :) Thanks for posting.

      I really liked this recipe and hope my kids do too. I did add stevia and a little agave nectar to sweeten it up a bit more. We put chocolate chips and unsweetened coconut in and it tasted pretty good. Will try again with different add-ins. A really fun and unique recipe!
