Some notes about this recipe-

The sesame seeds are important because they lend that chewy texture; the flax seed meal is important because it holds the bars together, the tahini (or other nut butter) is important because it provides creaminess, and the coconut oil is important because it semi-hardens the bar in the freezer.
