Paleo Chocolate Tahini Dipped Apple Pieces Dessert Recipe
This recipe is such an easy dessert, and it’s perfect if you have some leftover apple from another dish. You can make a quick and delicious Paleo dessert with just a few minutes of prep.
If you haven’t come across tahini paste before, it’s roasted sesame seeds ground into a thick paste. It definitely smells like sesame seeds, and you can get different colored tahini paste based on what color sesame seeds were used to make it. The consistency is similar to that of nut butter and it definitely tastes slightly nutty in flavor as well. Tahini paste has been used for centuries and is still used in many cuisines including that of many Middle Eastern regions.
If you don’t have tahini paste, then you can use almond butter instead in this recipe.
For the chocolate coating, you can use any type of dark chocolate you have available. If you’re staying mostly Paleo, then try to use dark chocolate over 70% cacao. This will have lower amounts of sugar in the chocolate. You can also use chocolate chips like the Enjoy Life chocolate chips, which are free of many allergens including soy. If you prefer to avoid as much sugar as possible, then use 100% dark chocolate for this recipe.
