This recipe gives you a choice of two variations on a traditional dessert recipe from the Middle East.

  • 1/4-cup tahini (sesame seed paste – often used to make hummus)
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 1/3-cup wheat germ
  • 1/3-cup ground flaxseed or sunflower seeds (can grind in a small coffee grinder)


  • Mix all together in a food processor.
  • Shape into a log and roll in additional ground flax seeds or whole sesame seeds.
  • Refrigerate then cut into small slices and serve as with fresh dates for a healthy dessert.

These two versions (one with flaxseeds and the other with sunflower seeds) each taste and look different. Serving both of them on a platter with whole dates and other fresh fruit for dessert is a beautiful and healthy way to end a meal with just a touch of sweetness. Enjoy!!


In my book, I have included the names of several dozen cookbooks which feature recipes that are compatible with (or that can be modified to fit) the ultra-healthy diet I follow, including some resources which are free.

I am also collecting recipes to include in a future edition of my book as well as to be featured on "Menus and recipes".   I have asked readers to send me any recipes that they have found to be great-tasting and easy to prepare, and that emphasize the nutritional guidelines which are outlined in my book.  I will also consider taking people's favorite "normal" recipes and posting versions which are modified for maximal cancer prevention.

If you have a recipe you wish to submit for possible inclusion in either my book or on this web page, please send it to me.  If the recipe is from a cookbook or other printed source, please include the name, author, and publisher of the source so that I can ask for permission to reprint the recipe.  If it is a recipe you created, or a family favorite, please indicate that, also.
