My mother'n'law made these amazing tahini chocolate brownies that she found on www.bonappetit.com

We eat tahini a lot for both sweet and savory.  We have a great tahini cookie recipe that we started making after we learned about our daughters nut allergy.  It makes a great nutty type cookie.  So when my mother n law said she made these, I was excited to try and it was amazing.  I asked her for the recipe and she sent me a link to the www.bonappetit.com website.

INGREDIENTS
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons virgin coconut oil
  • 4 tablespoons tahini, divided
  • 2 large eggs
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup (packed) light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon light agave syrup (nectar)

RECIPE PREPARATION

Preheat oven to 350°. Line an 8x8" baking dish with 2 overlapping pieces of parchment paper, leaving at least a 3" overhang on 2 sides.

Whisk cornstarch and cocoa powder in a medium bowl until no lumps remain. Heat chocolate, oil, and 1 Tbsp. tahini in a small saucepan over low, stirring, until melted and smooth.

Using an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat eggs, granulated sugar, and brown sugar in a large bowl until light, smooth, and doubled in volume, 3–4 minutes. Beat in salt and vanilla to combine, then beat in chocolate mixture, scraping down sides as needed, until incorporated. Beat in cornstarch mixture, then increase speed to medium-high and beat until mixture is thick and holds its shape, about 30 seconds.

Stir agave syrup and remaining 3 Tbsp. tahini in a small bowl. Scrape batter into prepared baking dish and smooth top. Dollop agave mixture over and swirl into top of batter with a skewer or toothpick.

Bake brownies until sides are puffed, top is browned, and a tester inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs attached, 22–26 minutes. Let cool before removing from pan and cutting into 16 squares.
