Yummy Sesame Cookie-Crackers Recipe

The following recipe for yummy sesame cookie-crackers is essentially the recipe for Super Sesame Bars given by Brigitte Mars in Rawsome!: Maximizing Health, Energy, and Culinary Delight With the Raw Foods Diet. I’ve just varied things a little. So here we go!


  • Blender
  • Blender or Coffee Grinder to ground the whole flax seeds
  • Food Dehydrator
  • Cookie-cutter round


  • 1 cup soaked dates
  • 2 cups sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla powder
  • 1/2 cup ground flax seeds
  • 1/4 tsp Celtic sea salt


  • Grind the flax seeds in the blender or coffee grinder
  • Put the ground flax seeds in a large bowl
  • Blend the soaked dates well. Add some of the soak water to help facilitate the blending if necessary.
  • Add the blended dates to the bowl
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl and mix until well combined
  • Spoon the mixture onto dehydrator sheets using the cookie cutter round to shape the cracker-cookies. In the cookie cutter round, spread the mixture out until relatively thin (see the photograph).
  • Dehydrate for 8 hours, then continue drying on a regular dehydrator tray until desired crispiness is reached.
  • Enjoy!

Note that the thinner you spread out the mixture in the cookie cutter round, the less dehydrating time you’ll need (which is good). They should be pretty crispy — more cracker-like than cookie-like. Though I liked the results of the above recipe, I felt that it could use a little something, though I’m not sure what. Suggestions? Maybe some chopped sun-dried raisins?

    I have a hard time imagining a blender being able to process the list of ingredients, there since there is no liquid, are you sure you didn\’t mean to mention a food processor instead? Might be worth mentioning that that you can always use wine glasses or cups if you don\’t have cookie- cutters. Substituting dates for dried mission figs or raisins I think would work really great. Recipe sounds really great, I should try it out sometime, I have Rawsome! on my bookcase.

    Hi Genny,

    The blender is just for grinding the flax seeds and for pureeing the soaked dates (this doesn’t work as well in a food processor). You then mix the rest of the ingredients in the bowl. The nice thing about the cookie-cutter round is that you can spread the mixture down inside the mold — you can’t really do this with wine glasses or cups. You’d have two spread the mixture out flat, use the glass or cup to cut the round shapes, then transfer to the dehydrator sheets — this could be pretty messy and frustrating.

    The next time I try the recipe I might add some chopped hunza raisins I got from

    Anyway, thanks for your comment!

  3. Great recipe! this looks like the greek pasteli but the raw vegan version [usually it is made with sugar or honey]. I would recommend adding small raisins, chopped almonds or chopped pistachios!

    I bought “ginger snaps” from “go raw” at whole foods. They used coconut, sprouted sesame seeds , dates and ginger…. so maybe ginger would do the trick of the little something it needs?

    Yummy! These were great. I opted to make them thicker for a more chewy taste… i was needing that chewy gooey kind of thing… I added a lit bit of agave to sweeten them up even a little more… I was wondering about raw sesame seeds…do you know if they should be soaked? i like the bitter taste raw but some of my friends do not….anything that can be done?

  6. LOOKS GREAT! Will try asap.

    Please DO NOT use agave. It’s worse than high fructose corn syrup. Use raw honey or maple syrup.
