Tahini Brownies

Tahini, or sesame paste, has a delicious earthy and nutty flavor. It’s a staple in my pantry because its so versatile, and can be used in sauces, dips, and even baked goods- like in these brownies.

These simple tahini brownies are fudgy, chocolatey, and so easy to make! They’re based off of my almond butter brownies, and are the perfect way to satisfy a sweet tooth.

How to make tahini brownies

To make this delicious chocolate dessert, here’s what you’ll need:

  • Tahini
  • Coconut sugar
  • Vegan butter
  • Unsweetened cocoa or cacao powder
  • Eggs
  • Baking soda
  • Vanilla extract
  • Salt
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips

Whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl, then pour the batter into an 8 x 8 baking dish. Bake the brownies for 15-18 minutes until firm to touch.

They’re chewy, fudgy, and highly addicting.

You can top your brownies off with a sprinkle of sea salt and dust them off with a little extra cocoa powder. We like them extra fudgy, so 17 minutes has been a sweet spot in the oven.
