What is Tahini?

Tahini is a paste made out of toasted and grounded sesame seeds; it is used in Mediterranean cuisine, and used in many other traditional cuisines as an ingredient as well as a condiment.

It’s similar to any other nut butter, very creamy, and with a high fat content, therefore, it makes the perfect substitute of butter in these brownies. It’s linked to many health benefits, which may include heart health, reducing inflammation, bad cholesterol or high blood pressure.

Tips on baking the perfect brownies

First, start by mixing your baking soda and cocoa powder; next, add half of your tahini and your coffee and mix. Add flour, vanilla extract and salt, then fold in your chocolate chips.

Second, pour your brownie mix in your prepared pan and bake for 35-38 minutes. If you want gooey brownies, a toothpick inserted in the middle should come out slightly wet, with moist crumbs attached. You need to let your brownies cool completely before adding your tahini ganache, or it could melt completely with the heat on top of your brownies.

To make your ganache start by melting your chocolate (for some tips on how to melt chocolate click here), then add your tahini and mix. Incorporate powdered sugar, vanilla and salt and mix.

Pour over your cooled brownies and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
