Black Sesame Matcha & Passion Fruit Candy Bars

By 26/03/2019 April 25th, 2019 No Comments

I’ve been spending a lot of time testing new dessert recipes recently and I feel a return to chocolate coming on, hence these Black Sesame Matcha & Passion Fruit Candy Bars. Thin black sesame wafers layered with matcha and passion fruit pralines. I love the striking colours and flavours in these bars. The passion fruit really stands up against the darkness of the sesame and chocolate, it cuts through that richness with it’s tart flavour and delicate aromas.

Black Sesame Matcha & Passion Fruit Candy Bars

Thin black sesame wafers layered with matcha and passion fruit pralines. I love the striking colours and flavours in these bars. The passion fruit really stands up against the darkness of the sesame and chocolate, it cuts through that richness with it's tart flavour and delicate aromas. 

Ingredients

Black Sesame Biscuit

  • 100 g black sesame seeds, soaked 2 - 4 hours and drained
  • 100 g buckwheat, soaked 1 hour, strained and rinsed
  • 10 g coconut flour
  • 100g ( ½ cup ) coconut sugar, powdered
  • 1-2 tsp charcoal powder optional
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil
  • pinch sea salt
  • 15 g golden flax, soaked in 60g water for 1 hour
  • 10 g ground golden flax

Matcha Praline

  • 30 g macadamia butter
  • 30 g coconut butter
  • 30 g maple syrup or honey
  • 10g-15g ( 3/4 - 1 tbsp ) cacao butter, melted
  • 6 drops vanilla Medicine Flower Extract
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1/2 - 1 tsp matcha tea powder the brightest you can find

Passion Fruit Praline

  • 30 g macadamia butter
  • 30 g coconut butter
  • 30 g maple syrup or honey
  • 10g-15g ( 3/4 - 1 tbsp ) cacao butter, melted
  • 6 drops vanilla Medicine Flower Extract
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1 tsp freeze dried passion fruit powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder optional for colour

Instructions

Black Sesame Biscuit

  • When straining the sesame seeds, suspend them in a strainer / sieve over a bowl for about 5 minutes to be sure they have drained as much water out as possible, otherwise they will get diluted by the excess water.
  • Transfer the strained sesame seeds to a food processor and add all remaining ingredients.
  • Blend until well broken down, the sesame seeds can remain whole, if they aren't blending smooth.
  • Transfer the mix to a teflex lined dehydrator tray and, using a moistened cranked / offset spatula spread the mix out to about ¼ inch thickness.
  • Score the mix into the size you desire the bars to be - this is the cutter set I used to score mine. Dampen the cutter between scores to ensure it cuts clean and doesn't stick to the dough.
  • Dehydrate for 15 hours at 115F.
  • Once it’s firm and dry enough, flip onto a mesh tray and dry for another 15 hours, or until crisp and dry throughout.
  • Break them along the scored lines and store in an airtight container at room temp until you’re ready to use them, or up to 4 months.
