Chocolate Chip Tahini Clusters

Chocolate Chip Tahini Clusters on deck for dessert tonight! I’m ALWAYS craving something sweet after dinner and fruit just doesn’t just it – I always want chocolate. These Chocolate Chip Tahini clusters are the perfect amount of sweet to satisfy a sweet craving AND they are made with (only 4) real food ingredients.

Tahini

You can’t have Chocolate Chip Tahini Clusters without tahini! I love using tahini. Tahini is most well-known for being used in hummus. I find it has a more neutral flavor and like using it in both sweet and savory recipes! Unfortunately, tahini can be on the pricey side. I’ve seen it sold as high as $10 per jar! Fortunately, I found that Trader Joes makes an organic tahini that is only $4 per jar, which is much more affordable!

Gluten-Free Rolled Oats

Rolled oats provide the perfect crunch factor to this recipe and also help bind the ingredients together. You may have noticed that I specified the use of gluten-free rolled oats. Yes, oats are naturally gluten-free, however, they are typically processed in facilities that also process wheat or other gluten-containing products. This can lead to cross-contamination. If you are trying to avoid gluten, it is best to purchase gluten-free rolled oats.

Paleo Chocolate Chips

You also can’t have Chocolate Chip Tahini Clusters without chocolate chips! These chocolate chips are specifically paleo. They means they are dairy-free and made with minimal ingredients. I used the brand Enjoy Life.

Maple Syrup

Maple syrup is used to naturally add that extra amount of sweetness and make it taste like dessert.

Ingredients in Chocolate Chip Tahini Clusters:

  • 1 cup gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1/4 cup paleo chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life)
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup 

How to Make Chocolate Chip Tahini Clusters:

  1. Mix ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Place contents of the bowl in a dish over parchment paper- I used a bread baking dish.
  3. Place in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
  4. Remove from the fridge and cut into squares. They will be messy.
