Tahini Fudge

Prep time: 5 minutes | Chill time: 2 hours | Makes: 15 pieces (depending on size)


1 c tahini paste

2 T maple syrup

2 T coconut oil, melted

1/4 – 1/3 c walnuts, finely chopped (depending if you like it really nutty)

1/4 c 70% dark chocolate chips or chunks (I used sugar free)

2 T desiccated coconut

1 t vanilla essence (or ½ t vanilla powder)

pinch salt


Using a silicone loaf tin or a normal baking tin, grease and line with baking paper.

In a large bowl mix tahini, maple syrup, coconut oil, walnuts, chocolate chips, coconut, vanilla powder or essence and salt.

Pour the mixture into the pan and evenly spread, smooth out the top.

Freeze for 2 hours or until set. Release from the tin and cut into squares. Store in the freezer. Note: This melts pretty quickly when out of the freezer so eat straight away.
