OMG Best Tahini Brownies Ever-Vegan Too!

Recently when shopping, I bought tahini to use in a salad dressing. It’s creamy and very rich tasting yet healthy. I had heard about baking with tahini and we have two tahini truffle recipes that are on the blog and are a huge hit. Frozen Raw Tahini Truffles and  Decadent Chocolate Tahini Truffles  

Since these two truffle recipes are so decadent tasting, I decided to come up with a brownie recipe. So, here it is. I named them after the reaction everyone who had one said. OMG! These are the best brownies! Give this one bowl recipe a try. It’s easy and so delish!


OMG Best Tahini Brownies Ever – They’re Vegan Too!


  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup all purpose flour or use all whole wheat pastry flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa or cacao powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup almond or cashew milk
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar, or brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup agave nectar, or you can use maple syrup or honey
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil, melted or avocado oil works well too
  • 1 flax egg, 1 heaping tbsp flax meal mixed with 3 – 4 tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup tahini, if firm, stir up until you get a creamy consistency
  • 1 cup vegan chocolate chips, I use Lily’s Sweets Chocolate Chips
  • 1 tsp coconut oil, avocado oil or grapeseed oil



  1. Preheat oven to 330 degrees, mist a 9 X 9 square baking pan with cooking spray, I used coconut spray. Not butter spray to keep these vegan. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Use a whisk to mix up the flour and cocoa so there are no lumps. Switch to a wooden spoon or spatula and add the rest of the ingredients.
  3.  Separate the chips and use 1/2 cup for the batter and the other half mix with the 1 teaspoon oil for drizzle on top.
  4. Mix well to incorporate all the dry into the wet ingredients. Pour batter into prepared pan. Spread out evenly.
  5. Bake for about 20-30 minutes. Check with a toothpick after 20 minutes. Should come out clean or moist crumbs.
  6. Let cool for 20 minutes in pan. While cooling melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips with oil in microwave for 20 second intervals. Stir until shiny and completely melted.
  7. Using a teaspoon or fork, drizzle the melted chocolate over the top of the cooling brownies. Let set up another 10 minutes. You can place in fridge for 5 minutes.
  8. Cut into 9 or 12 squares. Store in fridge up to 3 days. Take out and let sit on counter to warm to room temperature or eat cold.
