Recipe Information

Recipe Created By: Libby


1 cup sesame seeds
2 Tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla (optional)
1 Tbsp raw carob powder (optional)


Grind sesame seeds past meal stage into a nut butter. Scrape out into a bowl and dribble in the honey. Mix well until you get one sticky mass. For a “chocolate” halvah, mix in raw carob powder – don’t mix well; allow it to become marbled. For more vanilla flavor, add 1 tsp of vanilla with the honey.

Line a small (about 4×3 inches) box with waxed paper and press in the mixture. Put in the refrigerator to chill for an hour or so, take out, and slice into cubes.



Can substitute 1 cup tahini (sesame butter) for the sesame seeds.

Don’t use cocoa instead of carob, I tried that and it was way too bitter.
