DARK CHOCOLATE TAHINI BITES

It may still be the morning, but I always have chocolate on the brain! These no-bake, gluten-free chocolate tahini squares have just the right amount of bite, and still fulfill all your chocolatey desires. With dark chocolate and just a tablespoon of maple syrup, I made this recipe as guilt-free as possible.

 

If this is your first time seeing almond and coconut flour in a recipe, make sure to stock up! They are a great alternative for those of us avoiding gluten and mimic all-purpose flour quite well in other recipes. My favorite tahini is Mighty Sesame Co.'s Organic Tahini Squeeze Bottle as it's far less bitter than other brands I have sampled. The squeeze bottle is perfect for dressing a salad and, in this recipe, getting the precise amount into a measuring cup. I used Hu Kitchen Simple Dark 70% Cacao Bar to coat the bites, but if you prefer something a little sweeter to offset the tahini taste, opt for your favorite vegan milk chocolate option. Let me know what you think!
