So, now you are wondering which are these great ingredients that have such a powerful effect on your body. Let me introduce you to tahini, carobs and cinnamon.
Tahini is made from sesame seeds. It’s a great source of healthy omega-3 fatty acids, manganese, copper, calcium and protein.
Compared to peanut butter, tahini has higher levels of fiber and calcium and lower levels of sugar and saturated fats.
Carobs are part of the pea family. The ripe, dried pods are often ground to carob powder. In Cyprus, carob syrup is known as Cyprus’s black gold, and is widely exported. It is used as a natural sweetener or as a medicine for sore throat and coughs. It contains three times more calcium than milk. It is also rich in iron, phosphorus, and natural fibers.
Cinnamon is a high energy spice (10 grams yields around 103 KJ of energy) that can be used in both sweet and savory recipes. It is high in fiber and has a really strong taste due to an aromatic essential oil that makes up 0.5 to 1% of its composition.
Let’s get to the recipe!
- 1/2 cup organic raw sesame tahini
- 3 tablespoons pure carob syrup
- 3 tablespoons organic cinnamon powder
- Simply mix all the ingredients together in a bowl! It’s that simple!
Spread it on some rice crackers or wholewheat toast or simply have a tablespoon whenever you have a sweet craving! Enjoy!
