Banana Tahini Muffins

I'll admit baking with tahini was a first for me. I always just thought you couldn't make hummus without it and it can be used as a base for dressing. We learn something new everyday, am I right? Excited to have made this discovery and plan on baking with tahini more often.

In the spirit of flexibility, as you can see pictured below I made some muffins with blueberries some with chocolate chunks. Also, I used oat flour for these but you're welcome to use whichever flour you prefer. Follow the base recipe and make it your own with the additives/ substitutions. Happy Baking!
