Black Tahini Chocolate Fudge Brownie (GF)

These paleo, gluten free and grain free brownies are possibly the best thing I’ve ever created. If you’re not familiar with tahini, it’s just sesame seed butter! I used Fervor Nut Butter's black tahini, made from stone ground organic black sesame seeds. Typically it’s added to savory dishes like hummus, but adding it to these brownies was a total game changer! Don’t worry, they don’t taste like hummus, they’re rich, moist and SO fudgy. The tahini actually really brings out the sweetness of the brownie. No refined sugar needed! My boyfriend says these are the best thing I've ever made and he is a tough critic of healthified sweets... JUST SAYING!

WHAT YOU WILL NEED: 

  1. 2 eggs
  2. 1/4 cup black tahini (I use Fervor Nut Butters and it is AMAZING. However, any tahini will do. If you don't have tahini on hand, any nut butter will work in place of tahini.)
  3. 1/4 cup creamy almond butter 
  4. 1/4 cup maple syrup
  5. 2 tablespoons melted/cooled unrefined coconut oil
  6. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  7. 1/3 cup raw cacao powder
  8. 1 tablespoon almond flour
  9. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  10. Dash of sea salt 
  11. Toppings of your choice! (Chocolate chips, cacao chunks, coconut flakes, berries)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 325F
  2.  Line a 9x9 inch baking pan with parchment paper, or grease pan with coconut oil spray
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine eggs, tahini, almond butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract and melted coconut oil until smooth
  4. Fold in cacao powder, almond flour, salt and baking soda
  5. Bake for 20 minutes
  6. Let brownies cool for 1 hour and then cut and serve!
