Vegan MoFo Day 15: tahini muffins

I made these muffins for my road trip to North Greece. I had to travel for 6 hours in the forking rain. It didn’t stop raining not even for 5 minutes. I am still very cranky for traveling in this kind of weather but I am now with my Peanut so at the same time I feel very very happy as I hadn’t seen him for over two months. Anyway, these muffins are delicious and I like enjoying them as a quick snack. The tahini, almonds and walnuts give these muffins an amazing nutty taste which I am sure you will enjoy as much as I do.

tahini muffins


1 1/2 cup all purposes flour
1 cup soft flour
4 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup tahini
1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup fresh squizzed orange juice
1/4 cup brandy
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup crushed almonds
1/3 cup crushed walnuts

Preheat the oven at 180C/350F. In a mixing bowl place the tahini, oil and sugar and mix with a hand mixer until sugar dissolves.  Add the orange juice, brandy and cinnamon and keep mixing. Place the flour and baking powder in a big mixing bowl, make a hole in the middle and add the wet ingredients. Add the nuts and mix gently with a fork. Do not overmix.  Fill muffin liners up to 2/3 with the muffin mixture and bake for 30 minutes or until golden. Enjoy!
