Prep: 10 mins
Makes 8 squares
- 1/2 cup hulled tahini (softened)
- 3 Tbsp BioBalance Certified Organic Virgin Coconut Oil (+ optional 1 Tbsp cacao butter, melted)
- 3 Tbsp brown rice syrup
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- Freeze dried berries
- Goji berries
- Sesame seeds
- Edible flowers
- Flaked sea salt
Mix all ingredients in a bowl until combined. If your tahini is particularly hard (ie has been in the fridge), you may want to soften/warm it slightly before starting so it will mix well and become super smooth.
Pour your blend into ice cube trays, and place in the freezer for around an hour or until set.
Remove from the moulds, sprinkle with toppings if desired, and devour immediately (before they melt!). Or store in the freezer in a sealed container for up to two months.
For a firmer result you could use an equal measure of cacao butter instead. Alternatively simply add 1 tablespoon of cacao butter along with your coconut oil to help it set firmer. If you use the coconut oil only option, note that these treats do start to melt fairly quickly, so are best enjoyed straight from the freezer (on a plate, of course...).
You can also try making these with medjoul dates instead of liquid sweetener, which has a fabulous result in terms of taste (sweet caramelly goodness!). You'll just beed a strong blender to do so, and it will work better if you make a double quantity batch so you have enough mixture in your blender to get it super smooth. Simply swap out the 3 tbsp of brown rice syrup for 1/2c medjoul dates (~5 dates), so in a double batch, that means you'll be using 1c of medjouls (instead of 6 tbsp of syrup). Try out both versions (syrup vs dates), see what you like best.
If you prefer not too much salt, feel free to reduce to 1/8 tsp.
You can easily double the recipe to make twice as many.
