Tahini Fudge Recipe
- 24 dates
- 1 cup tahini
- ½ cup liquid coconut oil
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- A pinch of salt
- For garnishing: sesame seeds
Pit the dates and then process them in a food processor together with tahini, coconut oil, maple syrup (or other sweetener of your choice) and salt to a sticky mass (you don't need to mix for a long time, just until the ingredients are well mixed).
Transfer the mixture to a square form (approx. 7x7 inches) lined with plastic foil and spread it out using the back of a spoon or spatula. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top and place in the freezer for about 45 minutes until set. Remove the fudge from the form using the foil, cut into pieces and enjoy!
