single serving egg-free chocolate tahini brownie cake

by purelytwins

Hey luvs,

We’ve got a simple grain-free, egg-free recipe made from chocolate and tahini for you today!

egg-free grain-free tahini brownie

We love chocolate.

We love tahini.

We love mini cakes.

Anyone else?

We’ve said it before – we just love mini (single serving) things. Not sure why… guess because they are so cute and perfect for those days when you just crave something little and don’t have anything in the house 😉

Today’s recipe was inspired by two favorite recipes of ours –

chocolate protein tahini balls

single serving protein thin mint cake

We love to enjoy tahini in all types of ways from sweet to savory.

This chocolate tahini brownie cake is soft, not sweet, a delicate chocolate piece of heaven in your mouth.  If you do not have tahini or if you do not like it, you can use any nut butter.

A simple treat that is low sugar, full of fiber and healthy fats from raw cacao, tahini, and chia seeds.

  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 2 tbsp cacao (or carob powder for those who cannot do chocolate)
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp banana puree
  • 2 tbsp tahini


  1. Place all ingredients into a bowl and stir together. Place in a lightly oiled ramekin or muffin pan. Bake at 375 for about 10 minutes.


For the banana puree – you can use avocado puree, pumpkin, or sweet potato.


  • Serving Size: serves 1

We topped this single serving chocolate tahini brownie with more tahini!  Why not, right?

We mixed a spoonful of tahini with some mashed banana for a quick easy frosting!

mmm banana…tahini…chocolate 🙂

We do have another version that we made, which came out great as well, so we thought we would share that recipe too.

Chocolate chia tahini brownie cake with yogurt or kefir:

  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tbsp kefir or yogurt
  • 1 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds

  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar

Place all ingredients in a bowl and bake at 375 in a ramekin for about 10-12 minutes.

If you let the brownie sit for a little bit to cool then it can be a little bit easier to remove. But you can eat it with a spoon and you are good to go!

This mini brownie cake is quick to make and hit the spot for us when we wanted a brownie. We are excited that we finally have a single serving brownie…although this is not a rich ooey gooey  brownie. More of a light brownie with a soft cake-like texture. Splendid.

Twins question: Do you like making single serving things? Do you like tahini and chocolate together? What would you top this brownie cake with?

till next time,

this sounds intersting. Ive never used tahini in a brownie before, leave it to you girls to come up with this 🙂 Very creative! For the banana puree do you just used mashed banana or actually puree?

purelytwins July 13, 2013 - 8:49 am

Sara mashed bananas is fine.

Yum! I always make mini versions. Otherwise I have no self control. If I make cookie (which is often) I only make 4. 2 for me and 2 for my hubs.

This sounds delicious! Great recipe idea, thanks ladies! I’ll definitely try the carob version—I have a bag I’m trying to use up before I move next month!

Is it possible for me to luv you girls even more?!?!?!?!?!

Chocolate – YES!!
Tahini – YES!!
Single-serving cake – YES!!

Thanks for the wonderful recipe…I will be making it this evening 🙂

Have a good weekend!

Heather @ Better With Veggies July 12, 2013 - 11:56 am

This looks delicious – I’m pinning this one to make later. And I love that it’s all clean ingredients that I typically have on hand. Yum!!

Lisa July 12, 2013 - 12:10 pm

I’m all over this recipe! This looks so delicious, and I’m quite happy it has no eggs in it:) Perfect.
I wonder if it would work well with a tablespoon of banana or applesauce instead of the kefir…hmm…might as well try it.
Oh, and I picked up some plantains today, so I’m pretty excited to experiment with them:)
Have a great Friday!

Lisa July 12, 2013 - 7:06 pm

Andddd just realized the first recipe has no kefir, duh.

Laura @ Mommy Run Fast July 12, 2013 - 4:39 pm

I cannot keep up with your amazing creations! Hoping to try the plantain bread this weekend. Happy Friday!

Hi lovely twins, I was just wondering for the ‘yogurt’ version brownie how much Carob powder/Cocao would I use? I didn’t see any in the recipe?
Thank you both for these recipes, I love tahini! I love grainfree! You two are the best! 🙂

purelytwins July 13, 2013 - 8:42 am

London it is the same as the first recipe, sorry about that we will go fix that – 2 tbsp

These look so amazing and fun! I love using coconut flour and am always looking for more ways to include it!

purelytwins July 15, 2013 - 9:54 pm

thanks Andrea!

Laura August 15, 2013 - 8:34 pm

Made this today with a bunch of substitutions: mashed sweet potato for the banana, almond butter for the tahini, and ground flax seeds instead of chia. Tasted great!A little crumbly.

Roz August 27, 2013 - 4:16 pm

Made this today. Was delicious prior to entering the oven. I used oat flour instead, because it’s inexpensive compared with the coconut flour. I also used pureed pumpkin instead of banana and added a dropper full of liquid stevia. Loved it. Agree with Laura, a little crumbly, but delish!

meg August 21, 2014 - 8:13 pm

could you substitute a tablespoon of protein powder for the coconut flour?

purelytwins August 22, 2014 - 6:48 am

you can try Meg, it might alter it a little bit as coconut flour absorbs liquid differently

Karen March 16, 2015 - 1:49 pm

Made this yesterday and was very delighted and happy how it turned out! hit the spot and soooo good when you have a chocolate craving! thanks for the recipe!

purelytwins March 16, 2015 - 2:31 pm

So glad you enjoyed the brownie
