  • The first time I made this, to be honest, it was awful!!! There’s no sweetener at all in the recipe so the bitterness of the tahini and cacao was quite full on. I think any sweetener would work but I added about 1/4 cup brown sugar the second time I made them and they’re delicious!!! Still healthy and super low GI with all the protein, fat, and fibre from the other ingredients 🙂
