Chocolate tahini sauce or spread

So you may have noticed that this choc-tahini sauce/spread seems to find its way into a lot of our recipes… particularly our pancakes or as an accompaniment to some of our sweet treats.

As such, we thought it would be a good idea to share our famous chocolate tahini sauce recipe. We alternate it slightly depending on what we are serving it with… For example, for our ‘Jaffa’ hotcakes we add a tablespoon of lucuma powder and orange juice/zest to create a creamy orange-chocolate flavour.

Another great thing about this is that it can also be served as a spread on your choice of toast (simply by adding less water to make it thicker).

Serves 2


1 1/2 tbsp cacao powder
1 tbsp coconut nectar*
1/2 tbsp hulled tahini*
Boiling water, add to desired consistency

*Alter according to desired sweetness

Optional extras:

Pinch vanilla bean powder
Pinch of cinnamon
1 tsp lucuma powder
1 tsp mesquite powder
1 tsp orange juice/zest


  1. Place cacao powder in a small bowl and add in coconut nectar.
  2. Then, add in a dash of boiling water and mix until coconut nectar has melted and ingredients are combined.
  3. Add in tahini (this will create a creamier texture) and mix.
  4. Add in any additional ingredients you would like and add in boiling water to desired consistency.
