Blonde Tahini Fudge
Last updated: April 2022
Have you ever tried "blonde" fudge before? This recipe eliminates the use of cocoa and sugar while making use of protein and iron-rich tahini. This rich snack or dessert can be made quickly and is a great way to get in some extra protein when you are craving something sweet. In this recipe, I used raw, salt-free tahini.
