Chocolate Chip Tahini Blondies

BySarah Axtell, ND April 21, 2023

These Chocolate Chip Tahini Blondies are a fiber-fueled, mineral-rich chocolatey treat. Tahini (or sesame seed paste) is one of the most nutrient dense foods. We typically think of it as an all- star ingredient in hummus, but there are so many other uses- like in dessert! Tahini helps to stabilize blood sugar (thanks to the fat, protein, and fiber it provides), is a good source of bone-building calcium, and is good for your heart as it can reduce total cholesterol and LDL.

I use Bob’s Red Mill Oat Bran to boost the fiber. Oat bran contains beta glucan, a type of soluble fiber that improves cholesterol, diabetes, and gut health.

Regular oat flour will also work. I prefer oat bran due to the fiber content!

I hope you enjoy these slightly earthy, slightly nutty, slightly sweet blondies!
