Chocolate Nutty Fat Bombs

I’ve been a big fan of tahini for a while using it in dressings and sauces, but this is the first time I made a “sweet” recipe with it.  I have to say these little fat bombs are a tasty treat!

Tahini is made from ground hulled sesame seeds.  It’s actually quite easy to make at home and much cheaper.  Simply roast 1 cup of raw sesame seeds in a frying pan, stirring often, this only takes a few minutes – be sure to watch them as sesame seeds are small and will burn easily!  Allow seeds to cool, then blend with 3-4 tablespoons of neutral oil such as grapeseed, avocado or a light olive oil.  Blend until smooth, transfer to a jar and store in the refrigerator for months!

These treats are great for anyone with a peanut allergy.  Yes, I used peanut butter in the recipe but you can substitute with almond butter!  These are also quite large and could easily be halved into 24 mini cups for a lighter snack.Chocolate_Nutty_Fat_Bombs_Keto_Low-Carb_Low-Sugar_www.thehappyhealthfreak.com

Ingredients
  1. 2/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  2. 2/3 cup tahini, softened
  3. 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup or honey (I used a low-sugar maple syrup)
  4. 1/2 cup all natural peanut butter or almond butter, softened
  5. 1 Tbsp cacao powder
  6. 2 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk (may need to add more depending on consistency)
  7. 5 drops liquid stevia (more or less depending on preference)
  8. 12 paper or silicone muffin liners
Instructions
  1. Mix together coconut oil, tahini and maple syrup until smooth and creamy. You may need to bring the tahini to room temperature or microwave for 15-20 seconds to soften.
  2. Pour half the mixture into the paper liners and refrigerate.
  3. Mix peanut butter, cacao powder, almond milk and stevia until smooth and creamy. Again, make sure the peanut butter is room temperature so it creams together nicely.
  4. Divide evenly and press down mixture into the 12 cups, refrigerate again for about 10 minutes.
  5. Top with remaining tahini mixture.
  6. Return to the fridge again to harden.
  7. Enjoy!

      The one I had was sweetened with xylitol but you can use stevia instead.
