Tahini Fudge

Tahini Fudge
We love this Chocolate Tahini Fudge with Crispy Quinoa. And the best part about this recipe is that its equal parts delicious and nutritious! It is also vegan, gluten-free, no-bake, and incredibly simple to prepare. 
1 c melted dark 70% chocolate (best quality you have!)
1 c Seed + Mill Organic Tahini
2 tbsp coconut butter 
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp brown sugar or date syrup (we love Just Date Syrup)
1/2 c pre-cooked quinoa
3 tbsp sesame seeds 
3 tbsp flaky coconut 
2 tbsp good quality olive oil 
1 tbsp sea salt 

1. Pre-heat oven to 400 °F. Line a tray with parchment paper, spread quinoa, coconut flakes, sesame seeds and salt evenly over the tray, and  drizzle with the olive oil. Roast, checking regularly to see if the mix is crisping up and turning golden, about 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven to cool.  
2. While quinoa mix is roasting, gently melt chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Once melted, stir in the tahini, coconut butter, vanilla and date syrup (or sugar, if using).  Then, taste! If you prefer it a bit sweeter, add 1 extra tbs date syrup/sugar. 
3. Pour chocolate mix into a plastic-lined loaf tin, lined with plastic wrap and refrigerate.   
4. When chocolate mix is firm, remove from tin by flipping onto a flat surface. 
5. Sprinkle quinoa mix over chocolate log and slice into individual pieces (rectangular slices, cubes or triangles).

Serves 12 – these are rich! This recipe can be made 3 days in advance and kept in an air-tight container in the fridge.

The halva here is subtle, but adds a welcomed nutty flavor and tender texture on top of the flaky crust, and beneath the jammy fruit, lending it a not-not peanut butter and jelly quality. It's also lending its talents as a sweetener (meaning less granulated sugar on your fruit), and also providing something for those juices to sink into as the fruit bakes, which leaves you with a never-soggy bottom
