Easy & quick vegan, paleo, dairy-free & refined sugar-free tahini chocolate treat that is so addictive that you have to be careful with that one! Crunchy pecans will give some texture, and creamy tahini will make sure that all your sugar cravings are gone.
The first time I tried tahini, then I didn’t like it at all. It got stuck in my mouth and tasted weird. That’s why the tahini jar stayed in the cupboard for SIX months. Yes! I had no idea how to use it since all the recipes I tried I hated. I almost wanted to give up on tahini, but one magical day I decided to make something sweet, and I finally found what I needed. BUT I must still warn you.
It’s addictive, and I don’t exaggerate. Trust me! I have tried that “chocolate” on other people as well. Once I created this recipe I was so amazed, how quickly it was gone from the freezer. That’s why I have been buying more tahini than ever in my life. Once you try this recipe, you might understand what I mean.
In this recipe, I used these chocolate bar molds to get that chocolate shape. HOWEVER, you can make it without this particular form, and the taste will be the same. I can assure you that! All you need is a small container and baking paper that you probably already have at home.
