Samah Dada is the healthy-baker extraordinaire behind! Giada makes her cookie pie on a weekly basis (we don't blame her - we've tried it too!) and now this moist, flavorful, healthy tahini cake is on rotation. Tahini is such a great addition to this recipe, and doesn't overpower the flavor of the chocolate whatsoever. We urge you to give this one a go!

Chocolate Tahini Cake

This chocolate chip tahini cake has an unbelievably fluffy texture that's created by a combination of almond and coconut flour - and it also happens to be gluten-free and dairy-free! The sweetness from the coconut sugar is complemented by the tahini, which totally transforms the flavor profile of this dessert. And the vegan frosting takes it to another level, making it the perfect dessert for a special occasion, or even a sweet afternoon treat!

If you’re familiar with myself or my recipes at all, you’re probably aware of a few things. For one, I love chocolate. Another, I love creating baked goods that are fluffy and light, crisp on the outside and fudgey on the inside. But most of all, you know that I am obsessed with using real ingredients to create really indulgent, yet still healthy, sweets. This recipe is no exception to all of those qualifications!
One of my favorite things to do is use tahini in sweet recipes. It's the perfect ingredient to undercut the sugar and balance out the chocolate. And nope — it isn’t an overpowering taste at all! Even tahini skeptics have told me they absolutely love this recipe!
