Those little cups are so easy to make that my recipe could literally be just 2 sentences! They are quite rich and melt in the mouth. They have the consistency of butter but taste much nicer and are a nice little addition to a meal or a wee snack.  Tahini is not that well known which is unfortunate because it is a great natural paste made of crushed sesame seeds. You can add it to your veg, stir fries etc…You can now find Tahini in big supermarkets too and it is cheap. What is not to like!?

Here is how to make those Tahini cups (using a standard coffee mug):

Makes about 12 little cups

1/2 cup of tahini

1/2 cup of melted coconut oil

– Mix the Tahini and coconut oil in your blender.

– Fill your little muffin tray with paper cases then pour the tahini/coconut oil mix. If you want you can fill 1/3 of the cup then add a nut and pour the rest of the tahini/coconut oil mix on top until the paper case is full.

– Put the tray in the freezer for at least one hour.

– Keep the cups in a sealed box in the fridge. They keep for weeks.

–  Et voilà
