Are you ready for game day? Though both my teams are out, I’ll still be watching. But I’m way more interested in the food than what will be happening on TV next Sunday. And honestly, that’s always the best part. This year, I’m making dessert – in the form of flourless brownies! And you know I have to be a little extra, so I added a swirl of tahini to take them up a notch.

Ingredients for Flourless Tahini Brownies recipe

These flourless brownies get nutty, rich flavor from the tahini and bittersweet chocolate. Now. I won’t pretend that these are a health food. They are not. They are a portion controlled treat that will satisfy your grain-free and grain-eating friends alike.

Taking one brownie bite from the pan

It was fun to play around with the recipe because until I made black bean brownies a couple years ago, I had not tried brownies without flour. But the cocoa adds a bit of a flour-like consistency to the mix while the tahini and bittersweet chocolate give them all the body they need for a rich, fudgy finish. Plus it makes a pourable batter that you can whisk by hand!

Though it looks like caramel in the photo, that swirl is a simple mix of tahini and maple syrup for a nutty, slightly sweet topping that takes these flourless brownie bites over the top.

I’ve seen both the the Carolina Panthers (2016) and the Falcons (2017) go down in the big game in the last couple years. No matter what happens this year, I’m going to have these on the table so it will be a sweet finish!

So what are you serving? I’m sure to have guacamole and other small bites and dips. But I’m still pulling the menu together. If you’ll be browsing around your local Sprouts for inspiration (like me),  enter “TOUCHDOWN” in their mobile app for $1 off Sprouts Organic Spicy Black Bean Dip!

  • Melt chocolate over a double boiler. Stir in ¼ cup tahini and the coconut oil until smooth. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool slightly.
  • In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, coconut sugar, salt, and vanilla extract until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is light and airy.
  • With the mixer on low speed, add the warm (not hot) chocolate mixture a little at a time just until combined. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the cocoa powder. Pour the batter into the prepped pan.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the remaining 2 tbsp tahini with the maple syrup. Drop the maple tahini mixture by the spoonful onto the brownie batter. Swirl with a toothpick or spoon.

For this recipe, I used Sprouts brand all Organic Maple Syrup, Baking Cocoa, Tahini, and Vanilla extract.

    I am all about those brownies -- I have to admit to not caring a whit about football,but I can always rally around the buffet table. I would have to save room for dessert here.
