PALEO TAHINI BLONDIES

With a name as cute as this who doesn't want to give these a go!


A great recipe to try over the weekend with the kids and one that is grain-free and full of healthy fats :)


This recipe uses coconut sugar rather than brown sugar to keep them paleo-friendly. But a word of warning; coconut sugar is still very high in sugar at 75g sugar per 100g.


To reduce the sugar content we'd use Stevia instead :) Stevia is a lot more sweet than regular table sugar so you don't need as much!




INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour

  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 3/4 cup tahini (the runny kind)

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • One 70% dark chocolate bar, chopped (or 100g of dark chocolate) 

METHOD

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking pan with parchment paper.

  2. Mix the almond flour, coconut sugar, baking powder and salt together in a bowl.

  3. In a separate bowl, mix together the eggs, tahini and vanilla extract.

  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until combined.

  5. Stir in the chocolate chunks and then transfer the batter to the baking pan, pressing down evenly.

  6. Bake for 18-22 minutes, let cool completely before cutting.
