Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Servings 18 muffins


  • 1 cup all purpose flour 140g
  • 1/2 cup dutch process cocoa 60g
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 cup brown sugar 220g
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil 100g
  • 2 1/2 large bananas, mashed 250g
  • 1/2 cup tahini, stirred 60g
  • 1/2 cup halva crumbled


  • Preheat the oven to 400 F and prep your muffin pans with paper liners. If you want taller, domed muffins you’ll bake 6 in a pan at a time with gaps between (so every other cup will have a muffin).
  • Mash the bananas with a fork then transfer to a large bowl. Add the sugar, oil, salt, and eggs and whisk to combine. Add the flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt and tahini and stir to combine. Fold in the halva crumbles.
  • Fill muffin cups ¾ of the way full and bake for 20 minutes.
