Vegan Tahini “Nutella”

Print

One of the first things I was sad to find out was not vegan when I became fully plant-based was Nutella – the creamy, chocolatey, nutty spread was my favorite treat and indulgence. When I looked closer at the product’s label, I saw it was also full of highly processed ingredients. This inspired me to create a version that was just as delicious, but also had nutritional value. This recipe is also wonderful for anyone dealing with acid reflux or LPR because it utilizes carob powder instead of cacao (although you can substitute it if you are reflux-free), which is an acid trigger. It’s delicious spread over rice cakes, as a dip for fruit, or dolloped over your morning oatmeal!

Further Food Commentary:

Low carb and low sugar nutella? Hannah has created a recipe that swaps the sugary filled spread with tahini. This sesame seed paste is packed with minerals like phosphorus and calcium which bind together to make up strong teeth and bones. It also has a healthy dose of iron which can help prevent anemia. Tahini also has high unsaturated "good" fats and protein content that is higher than most nuts.
