These Tahini Chocolate Chip Blondies are a new favorite!

Sooooo chocolatey and rich tasting yet gluten-free, grain-free and even dairy-free optional!

They’re based  on my Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies which is one of those easy, reliable recipes that always turns out so good!

But in this recipe I reduced the almond butter and added in a 1/2 cup of tahini which gives the most unreal richness of texture and flavor.

If you haven’t tried baking with tahini before, I highly recommend it.

They are made with 10 real, whole food ingredients.

All you’ll need is tahini, almond butter, almond flour, butter or dairy free butter alternative, eggs, brown sugar, vanilla extract, baking powder, salt and semi-sweet chocolate chips.

And they are so much easier than cookies to make because you whip up the batter and spread it into a 8×8 inch pan.  That’s it!

The batter comes together in less than 10 minutes and is thick and smooth.

Spread into a pan lined with parchment paper. By using parchment paper, you can just lift the baked blondies straight out of the pan and slice them easily.

Top with extra chocolate chips and bake!

Recipe type: Cookies, Blondies, Dessert
Cuisine: Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Vegetarian, Dairy-Free Optional
Serves: 16 squares
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter or butter alternative, softened (we used Earth Balance Dairy Free, Soy Free stick)
  • ½ cup tahini, well stirred
  • ¼ cup smooth almond butter (I used Barney Butter- Amazon Affiliate link)
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or dairy-free chocolate chips, plus extra for topping (optional but recommended!)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Prepare an 8-inch-square baking pan: cover parchment paper, allowing it to slightly overhang opposite ends.
  3. Cream butter, tahini and almond butter in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer until creamy.
  4. Add in eggs, brown sugar and vanilla, mix well.
  5. Whisk almond flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl.
  6. Add the flour mixture into the wet ingredients until just combined.
  7. Stir in chocolate chips.
  8. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan.
  9. Top with additional chocolate chips as desired.
  10. Bake 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. As with all gluten-free baking, if the top seems brown enough but you want the center to cook a bit more, loosely cover with foil and return to oven.
  11. Let cool in the pan for 45 minutes. Lift the entire parchment paper out and transfer to a cutting board. Cut into 16 squares.
  12. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to a week or two. Freeze well too!

  1. My husband loved these Tahini Chocolate Chip Blondies and he usually does not enjoy my GF treats. I watch my sugar so I lowered the sugar to 1/2 c. and cut the chocolate chips down to 1/2 c also. They were even delicious and chewy after they cooled off.
