If you’re looking for a healthier snack, give these a try. These strawberry tahini muffins are filled with warm strawberries, gooey chocolate, they contain no refined sugar, they are gluten free made with oats and with tahini. If you’ve never tried baking desserts with tahini, I highly recommend you give it a try. It gives these muffins such a great flavor.


It’s toasted sesame seeds made into a butter or paste and it’s used traditionally in Middle Eastern cuisine. It has an earthy nutty flavor but also has a slightly bitter flavor when eaten alone. We never eat it alone we use it in other dishes, like hummus. Although tahini resembles peanut butter or nut butters, it does not have a similarly sweet flavor profile but when it’s added to various dishes, it gives it such a wonderful flavor.

You can add any inclusions that you like but I think the combination of the strawberries, chocolate and tahini give these muffins an incredibly delicious flavor.

I hope you enjoy them.

Thank you for stopping by.
