HOW TO MAKE TAHINI BROWNIES | Healthy + Gluten-Free Dessert Recipe
Gluten-Free Maple-Tahini Spread
- In a small bowl, mix all ingredients together; stir until completely smooth and mixed through.
Ingredient Variations and Substitutions
Tahini is extremely versatile. The creamy spread pairs well with various flavors and textures. The pure maple syrup adds a nice subtle maple flavor to the spread. If you don't necessarily love maple, you can add in honey instead. Honey will bring a nice floral sweetness.
Vanilla extract is a pantry staple for most, easy to add to baked goods or sweetened spreads like this one. Using actual vanilla bean instead really kicks up the flavor. Although it can get pricey, vanilla bean adds a rich, pure vanilla flavor to whatever you add it to. To use it, slice one pod vertically so the insides are exposed on each half. Hold one end of the pod down and scrape out the insides with a knife. Mix in half of the pod's beans into the tahini mixture and stir until well combined.
Instead of vanilla, you could get creative with flavors and try hazelnut, almond, or any other nut essential oils or extracts. If you are a chocolate lover, add a teaspoon of unsweetened cacao or cocoa powder.
To modify texture, mix in some chopped nuts for crunch. If you want a lighter and thinner spread, whisk in some water. The water will also help to reduce the fat content per serving.
Cooking and Serving Tips
Because this spread is so versatile you can easily incorporate into sweet and savory dishes.
My favorite way to eat this is over waffles or pancakes. It also makes for a sensational ice cream or Greek yogurt topper. Heat it up for a few seconds to give it some warmth before adding.
Use this on a veggie or turkey sandwich instead of mayonnaise or mustard. I also recommend pairing this spread with Brussels sprouts or other roasted, cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli or cauliflower.
This will stay fresh in the refrigerator for one week.
Read the nutrition label when choosing your tahini. Choose one made only with roasted, ground sesame seeds as the sole ingredient. Most store-bought tahini often includes added oil, which is unnecessary.
