Almond Butter Tahini Chocolate Chip Muffins

These muffins have won my dad over and I couldn’t count how many times he said, 
“Yum…” let’s just say too many to count. These were so easy to whip up if you are having some late night cravings. 

The combination of tahini and chocolate is absolutely delicious. If you haven’t tried tahini…you are truly missing out. It is a great nut butter to go in sweet & savory dishes!
