grain free tahini brownies by ambitious kitchen

paleo, grain free, dairy free, refined sugar free brownies made with tahini are definitely a winner at home especially with our little boys

I am a big brownie fan. Who isn’t! My quest these days is to create refined sugar and gluten free brownies whilst retaining the texture and flavour of the grain based version. My favourite gluten free brownies are chocolate brownies by eat drink paleo whose delicious flavour and gooey texture comes from sweet potatoes and cocoa. I stumbled across this recipe searching for something to use the half a jar of tahini left in my fridge from making some almond pulp hummus. As always the trusted Thermomix was called upon to make these tahini brownies and our two little boys were entrusted with the taste testing.

I will admit that I am not the biggest tahini fan. While I don’t mind it in hummus I am not the type of person to use it in salad dressings or eat it straight from the jar. I was a little worried that the tahini flavour would be too overpowering but far from it. They are the perfect combination of chocolate with the slight tang of tahini.
