Fit Friday: Simple, Satisfying, Tahini Squares

Happy Friday friends! I am keeping this short and simple today, this is a follow-up to my Instagram stories (if you watched a week or so ago I made these bars on a Friday night and said I would make again & MEASURE so I could tell you the recipe). Well here they are! Honestly these are crazy addictive, a little salty and sweet, the perfect texture and of course involve chocolate. The tahini has protein too which helps you digest slowly and feel satisfied.

If you try them let me know what you think! I am having a super girly Friday night complete with Pilates, a face mask, and possibly a glass of rose 😉 Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and get out in this beautiful weather!

Base

1 c chopped walnuts

3 TBL raw organic honey

½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut

optional 1 tsp water (if dough is not sticking together)

Middle

½ c organic tahini

pinch himalyan pink salt

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/3 c pure maple syrup

Dash of cinnamon

Top

½ c unrefined coconut oil

1/3 c cacoa powder

Directions

Combine all base ingredients in a food processor and process until dough forms (add 1 tsp of water if not coming together). Press dough into a square baking dish lined with parchment. Cut square of parchment paper and use between a mug to press dough in even layer. Place in the freezer while you make the other layers. Process the middle layer ingredients with only a few pulses until just combined, you want to maintain a smooth texture. In bowl melt coconut oil and stir in cacao powder, mix until smooth. Take out pan and layer with middle caramel layer, pour chocolate over top and freeze at least one hour. Enjoy! Store in the fridge or freezer in airtight container for up to one week.
