Sweet Laurel Bakery


I love Tahini! It has been a favorite of mine for quite some time, especially when I am pregnant and nursing because sesame seeds are packed with nutrients.  I use Tahini in salad dressing, dip for my veggies (favorite is raw carrots or baked sweet potatoes) and spread it over grain free toast for a snack! Recently, I started making brownies with Tahini. The sesame flavor is pretty strong, but paired with the cacao it is delicious!!
