Gluten Free Tahini Cupcakes


We’d like to thank our member Mary Petrou for this delicious gluten free cupcake recipe, made with tahini, bananas and chocolate.

For the tahini sauce:

  • Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl until smooth.

For the cupcakes:

  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Combine the baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, chopped walnuts, and finely chopped couverture in a bowl. Set aside until needed.
  • In a mixer, beat the tahini, sugar and vanilla with the whisk attachment until the mixture becomes fluffy.
  • Add the orange juice and beat a little longer.
  • Mash the bananas with a fork. Do not mash them completely. There should be some small pieces left.
  • Add the mashed bananas to the tahini mixture.
  • Last, add the flour mixture. Beat just until the mixture becomes wet and combined. Do not overmix.
  • Line a 6 cup large cupcake pan with cupcake liners. Divide the mixture among the cups (about 1 heaping tablespoon for each).
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, at the most.
  • When ready, remove from oven and allow to cool.
  • You can serve them plain, dusted with caster sugar or with the tahini sauce.
