These tahini s’mores blondies are the fudgiest bars ever. You don’t need a campfire to get amazing s’mores flavor – just make these vegan blondies.
S’mores are a classic summertime treat. They’re made by squishing a campfire toasted marshmallow and a wedge of chocolate between two graham cracker squares. There is something so nostalgic about the toasted marshmallow, melty chocolate, and crunchy graham cracker combination. For those living in cities without regular access to campfires like me, these tahini s’mores blondies have it all!
Tahini in Baked Goods
If you haven’t tried using tahini in baked goods, now is the time! Tahini is a seed butter made from ground sesame seeds. It is a common ingredient in Middle Eastern and Mediterranean cuisines. Tahini is usually an ingredient in savory dishes, but it is actually amazing in baked goods! The flavor is rich and nutty, but mild enough to blend into brownies, cookies, and other treats. Tahini has a high fat content, a majority of which is healthy unsaturated fats. This eliminates the need for butter or oil, while still keeping your baked goods a fudgy and moist.
How to Make Fudgy Tahini S’mores Blondies
In a large mixing bowl, make a flax egg with ground flaxseed and warm water.
Add other wet ingredients to the bowl: tahini, maple syrup, and vanilla extract, and mix.
In a separate bowl, mix together dry ingredients: almond flour, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder.
Fold in dark chocolate chips.
Pour batter into a parchment paper lined baking pan and smooth out into an even layer.
Top batter with marshmallows, graham cracker crumbles, and more chocolate chips.
Bake until edges are browned, let cool, cut, and dig in!
Recipe Notes and Tips For Making Tahini S’mores Blondies
Slightly under-bake blondies. Bake until the blondies are just starting to brown on the edges to keep them super fudgy and gooey.
Let cool completely before slicing. Since the blondies are so fudgy, let them cool completely before you cut them. Otherwise, they will be difficult to keep together in squares!
Try chocolate chunks instead of chips. Substitute chopped dark chocolate bars (or Hershey’s bars!) for chocolate chips for an even more authentic s’mores feel.
