Crunchy Sesame Sticks

I have reworked an earlier recipe in order to make a healthier, crunchier snack. I like to serve this on table game nights, but this is also a great snack for sports events or to pack in a lunch box. Enjoy!

Makes about 100-130 sesame sticks.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 c flaxseed meal
  • 6 Tbsp cold water
  • 1/2 tsp Browning and Seasoning Sauce (Kitchen Bouquet)
  • 3 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 Tbsp tahini (sesame seed butter)
  • 1 c whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 Tbsp brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 c sesame seeds

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F and lightly oil two baking sheets.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the flaxseed meal, water, and Browning Sauce together; allow to stand 10 minutes.
  3. Add in the oil and tahini; mix until well-incorporated.
  4. In a small bowl, blend the flour, brown sugar, salt, and sesame seeds. Add to the wet ingredients and mix well. Knead in bowl one or two minutes.
  5. Turn out on counter and divide in fourths. Roll each dough ball into a long flat roll (approximately 1/4 inch thick by 1 inch wide by 10 inches long.
  6. Using a butter knife, cut each roll into about 25-30 pieces.
  7. Roll each piece between your palms briefly, forming small tapered sticks. Place half of the sticks on each of the two baking sheets and separate them, so none are touching.
  8. Bake 30 minutes, rotating and exchanging upper and lower sheets mid-way. Remove and allow to cool completely in the pans. Transfer to snack dishes and serve. Store any unused portion in a covered container.
