Don’t worry that sesame seeds aren’t totally broken down, this is intentional to give texture and a speckled appearance. If you do want a totally smooth halva then grind your sesame seeds first.

Ground sesame won’t give a solid halva type as it isn’t cooked with lots of sugar, so will be more of a fudge consistency.

The simplest things are often the best and this and I love this simple 3 ingredient recipe. Use the highest quality and freshest ingredients you can afford for the natural flavours to shine through.

I usually use unhulled sesame seeds to make this as they have a richer earthy flavour and more nutrition. But for a less earthy taste use the lighter hulled sesame seeds.

You can roll these truffles in chopped nuts, seeds and dried fruit to add more flavour and decoration. Chopped pistachio, freeze-dried raspberry and coconut shreds make a very tempting truffle.

This recipe can be made caffeine free by replacing the cacao with carob powder. It will have a similar rich flavour and still be just as nutrient dense.

Use this simple and easy recipe as a base to add what you like to. I would often add some cinnamon, cayenne pepper or wheatgrass to add more taste and nutrients.

  1. This is a beautifully simple and I’m sure delish recipe! Do you also have one without chocolate? I’m thinking the raisins or even dates would give an off color if the halva was sesame flavor.

      Thanks Vanessa, glad you like it. If I want a just a sesame halva I usually add dried figs as the seeds in the figs work really well and the colour doesn’t get too dark. But for this you do need to chop the figs up quite small so that the blender doesn’t struggle too much 🙂
