Tahini Chocolate Bars

Tahini Chocolate Bars

Chocolate and tahini mind sound like a weird combo to some of you but once you tried it, you

will fall for it! I was one of those people who could not imagine it tasting anything delicious together but I was wrong.

Goodbye peanut butter and jelly and hello chocolate & tahini I would say 🙂

This is the perfect recipe for anyone who craves something sweet and healthy. The bars are super easy to make and I usually have all of those ingredients at home anyways. If you prefer to make your own chocolate coating that’s fine too and even healthier.

I used white tahini which is my favorite because the sesame flavor is not too strong. You could use the darker and roasted tahini too though.
