I recently acquired a whole flat of wheat grass, and I'm not really sure what to do with it.  I don't have a juicer- can I just toss it in the blender?  Anyone have suggestions/recipes?

And, while I'm asking questions, I also have a lot of sesame seeds- I think I'd like to make sesame cookies.  Or something else sweet.  So if anyone has a good recipe, toss it out there (bonus points if it uses both sesame seeds AND wheatgrass  Wink). 

Thanks!

Something sweet you can make with sesame seeds are sesame bars.
The only thing is there are eggs in this recipe. I'm not sure if you eat them or not. I'm sure you could find a similar one without them if you need to.
Here's the recipe:

 INGREDIENTS

    * 1/2 cup toasted sesame seeds
    * 1/2 cup butter, melted
    * 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    * 1 teaspoon baking powder
    * 1/2 teaspoon salt
    * 1 cup packed brown sugar
    * 2 eggs
    * 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

DIRECTIONS

   1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x9 inch square pan.

   2. Stir sesame seeds into melted butter, and set aside to cool. Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a medium bowl, mix the eggs, sugar and vanilla into the butter mixture. Add dry ingredients and stir until well blended.

   3. Pour batter into the prepared pan, spread evenly. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool and cut into squares.

Also, I think you can probably put the wheatgrass in a blender, as long as you run it through a strainer afterwards to get the pulp out.

Ooh, the sesame bars sound good (I'm (mostly) vegetarian, but not vegan, so eggs are fine).  Thanks!
