Picture of Healthy Vegan Gluten Free Tahini Brownies

Healthy Fudgy Brownies that are full of healthy fats, vitamins and minerals. The main ingredient is TAHINI (sesame paste) which I know sounds weird, but it really works well with chocolate and gives the brownies a fudgy texture.

This recipe is VEGAN, GLUTEN-FREE, DAIRY-FREE and REFINED SUGAR-FREE,

Step 1:

Ingredients

- 1 cup (237g) tahini

- 1/3 cup (6 tbsp) honey (or other liquid sweetener)

- 3 tbsp cocoa/cacao powder

- 3 tbsp chopped dates

- 2 tbsp cacao nibs (or chocolate chips)

- 1 tsp vanilla paste (or 2 tsp vanilla extract)

- Prepare you chia egg - in a small bowl, mix together 1 tbsp chia seeds with 3 tbsp water. Leave to set for 10-15 minutes or until the seeds soak up all the water and turn into a gel like consistency.

- In a bowl, add the tahini. To that, add the chia egg, honey, cocoa, oat flour and salt. Give everything a good mix.Now fold in the chopped dates and cacao nibs (or chocolate chips).
