Sesame and orange squares

The day before making those, I was trying to find a new original flavour.
I suddenly thought about sesame and orange and decided to finally make a raw cream made out of cashews!

My food processor sadly isn’t powerful enough to make a fine cream out of cashews, even if I soak them overnight. Despite this “grainy” texture, those squares were super tasty, so if your food processor is better than mine, yours will be even better 😉

And if your too lazy to make the cream, just make the base!
It makes THE BEST bliss balls ever. TRUST ME!

RECIPE

Base :

  •  1 cup dates
  • 3/4 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup buckwheat
  • 1 handful almonds
  • Zest of 1/2 organic orange
  • A bit less than 1/4 cup roasted sesame seeds (Simply roast them on medium heat in a pan!)

Cream (To be honest, I don’t think it’s the best cashew cream recipe ever, so feel free to use one you like and simply add the sesame seeds + orange to it :-)) : 

  • 1 cup overnight soaked cashews
  • 1/4 cup roasted sesame seeds (they must be cold!)
  • Juice + zest of one organic orange
  • 3 tbsps maple syrup
  • 3 tbsps plantbased milk (more if needed)

 

 

Soak your cashews the night before making the squares.

Next day, make the base by simply blending all the ingredients.

Spread it on a rectangular baking plate (not too thick but not too thin ;-))

OR simply make bliss balls!
Keep it in the freezer while you’re making the cream.

Rinse the soaked cashews and put them in a food processor with all the other ingredients (make sure the sesame seeds are cold!). Blend until it gets smooth and creamy. If your food processor isn’t powerful enough, don’t worry, it’s still yummy 😉
Pour on top of the base and put in the freezer for at least 2 hours until it firms up.

You can eat them right out of the freezer or let them sit for 5-10min. before eating them depending on your liking. However, be careful to not let them outside for too long as the cream can melt!
