It's the most wonderful time of the year, when family and friends gather around delicious food, often bookmarked by an abundance of sweet, sugar-ladden treats. Even after a marathon of heavy meals, it can be hard to resist an extra nightcap cookie (or few). While there's nothing wrong with indulging in a bit of everything, excessive sugar and simple carbohydrates can take a toll on our energy and overall wellbeing in amongst all the celebrating.
Rather than avoiding treats and fun foods altogether, we found a way to make one of our favorite holiday treats with better for you ingredients that won't leave you feeling sluggish. Our Chocolate Olive Oil Tahini Cups are a delicious, nutrient-rich take on the traditional Reese's peanut butter cup.
Made with high quality, unsweetened cocoa, our high-phenolic extra virgin olive oil, 100% pure maple syrup, and of course stuffed with the best organic tahini made by our friends at Seed + Mill. With no need to melt any chocolate, this recipe couldn't be simpler. Top with flaky sea salt for a luxe finish on these elegant chocolate tahini cups!
