Nut Sticks

What you need: 

1 cup natural nut butter of your choice (I like cashew best)
1 cup light oil, like canola or corn
16 slices of whole grain bread
1/2 cup sesame seeds

What you do: 

Preheat your oven to 250 Fareinheit.
Slice the vegan bread into strips about 1 wide and arrange on cookie sheets, with plenty of room between them. Place these in the oven and dry the vegan bread out for about 15 minutes, turning halfway, so that the strips are very hard.
While these are drying out, combine the nut butter and oil in a large, heavy skillet with deep sides. Mix over medium-low heat until well combined and it looks kind of runny.
When the vegan bread is ready, remove it from the oven and grind up 6 strips in your blender or food processor until they are very fine crumbs, almost like powder. Mix in the sesame seeds with a spoon until well-combined, and pour out on to a large plate.
Dip and coat the remaining strips of vegan bread a few at a time in the nut/oil mixture, making sure they are thoroughly covered in it. Let excess nut/oil mixture run off of them before dipping and rolling the sticks in the crumbs and sesame seeds. Set them to dry and cool on a cookie sheet for about an hour, then: Munch, munch, munch!
Everyone just loves these, so I serve them at every gathering. My toddler son especially likes them, so they are kid-tested.
