Tahini (i.e. sesame seed butter) is loaded up with powerful antioxidants, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. All of this in a delicious dessert? Yes please! This is a new favorite of ours!
- 1 cup tahini
- ¼ cup melted coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (more can be added if this does not make it sweet enough for your liking)
- ½ tablespoon good-quality vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup dark chocolate chips, plus 2 tablespoons for sprinkling on top
- Maldon or fancy sea salt, for sprinkling on top
Line a 8×4 inch loaf pan with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, mix together the tahini, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla and salt until smooth. Fold in ¼ cup chocolate chips.
Pour the fudge into the pan. Freeze for 5-10 minutes, then sprinkle 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips on top on the fudge and press them in a bit if necessary.
Freeze until firm about 30 minutes. Sprinkle with a little sea salt. Cut into 15 squares.
Store in a freezer safe container in the freezer for up to 3 months. **The fudge will melt if left at room temperature, but you can let it sit out for a bit to soften up before eating it!
