Halva or Halvah, which is pronounced "hall-VAH" and means "sweet", is a Middle Eastern treat, which is often made with flour and other sweeteners, nuts, and seeds. This halva carob bon-bon vegan recipe will make approximately 24 bon-bons.

Place all of the ingredients in the container of a high speed blender or food processor (with cutting blade), cover and run at high speed until the ingredients form a thick smooth paste. The tamper of the Vita-Mix helps by pushing the ingredients into the blades.

Remove the bon-bon mix and form teaspoon size of small balls, whichever you prefer. Place the bon-bons in the refrigerator until they become firm.


Note: We suggest storing the bon-bons in a covered container in the refrigerator to preserve freshness, and to prevent the sesame oil from oozing out.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
