Bringing together chocolately goodness with the beautiful nutty flavor of tahini to make a match made in heaven.
Tahini is a secret baking ingredient that is underutilized. It offers a nuttiness that you don’t expect, and no, it doesn’t taste like straight sesame seeds. In cookies, it creates a beautiful chewiness, in these muffins, it makes for a perfectly moist texture with a rich flavor.
Did you know sesame seeds are an amazing source of calcium? They have even more calcium than all dairy products. They’re mighty little guys and when pureed, are turned into a butter that can be used in SO many dishes from savory to sweet.
When I was young, my dad used to make me eat tahini when I had the flu because it’s great for stomach absorption, I always hated it, but….now I love it! I hope you will too!
These muffins are gluten-free and naturally sweetened but you’d never know!!!
