Salted chocolate tahini brownies

Salted Chocolate Tahini brownies

Salted chocolate tahini brownies are indeed needed after this very very cold week and weekend. I am thankful for a house with proper heating because I tell you even if I ate this whole batch of brownies it wouldn’t have heated me. They did help to curb the craving for chocolate and the added helping of salt did its job in the very best to make this recipe more spectacular. It makes me want to celebrate Christmas early this year!

Winter has surely come with a bang, even though I am not entirely ready for it, I guess the copious amount of rain is a dead give away that I have to surrender. Just like all the forces of nature, you just have to give in to the winds, rains and changing of colors, because actually, it’s pretty amazing. I just adore the beautiful colors that are on display right now, and even though I don’t really stop and look, sometimes I do and then I realize how very small I am. All my worries, all my insecurities, cares kind of melt away, and all I’m stuck with is just to be, here and now and to enjoy life.

These brownies though are the ultimate way to enjoy the here and now, they are perfectly crunchy on the outside with just the right amount of crinkles and super soft and doughy on the inside with bursts of melted salted chocolate in there! I mean who can resist and warm baked brownie with a dollop (or two of ice cream). I never really made brownies that often just because I thought there was some magical trick, but they are pretty simple to make and nowadays you get all you need in most stores, so a decent batch is definitely worth the effort.

Salted Chocolate Tahini brownies

Salted Chocolate Tahini brownies

Ingredients 

  • 200g white cashew chocolate (recipe below) 
  • 75g vegan butter
  • 25g Tahini 
  • 50g water
  • 5g potato protein (can be subbed with tapioca starch or corn starch)
  • 1/8 tsp xantham gum or guar gum
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 200g coconut sugar
  • 115g white all-purpose flour (more if needed) 
  • 1 tbsp tapioca starch
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 20g non-dairy creamer (I used almond milk powder)
  • 100g coconut cream
  • 1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 110g chopped dark salted vegan chocolate of choice (here for the homemade chocolate recipe) 

White cashew chocolate

  • 1/2 cup cacao butter
  • 2 heaped tbsp cashew butter
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees Celcius. Line a brownie pan with parchment paper or smear with coconut oil.
  2. Meanwhile, place the white cashew chocolate mixture in a mixing bowl over hot boiling water to let it melt. (or you can just use the melted mixture from the beginning)
  3. Mix the potato protein and the water, Xanthan gum and salt, add the sugar and whisk in the melted chocolate mixture.
  4. Sift all the dry ingredients together and then fold in the wet gradually with a spatula.
  5. Whisk together the coconut cream and the vinegar and fold this also into the brownie mixture, add in the chopped salted chocolate at the end, leaving about 1/4 over to sprinkle on top. 
  6. Pour into the brownie pan, add the extra chocolate on the side and place in the oven to bake for 30-45 minutes, more if need, check first before slicing. 
  7. Once brown and baked through, let it cool on your kitchen counter before sprinkling over some coarse salt, and slice and serve with ice cream of choice.  

Notes:

I know some of these ingredients are a bit intimidating like Xanthan gum, potato starch, and cacao butter, but bear with me.

Most can be found online like in SA: Soaring free superfoods and faithful to nature. 

If you live abroad like me, amazon or even vegan gastronomy sell most of these products. Check even your local bio store!

I hope you love this amazing recipe, it’s been a favorite of mine to twist and change as I developed different variations to it. Add some fruit, nuts or spices to your liking.

Have a great week!
