  • Step 1

    Place the ingredients for the tahini swirl into the into a small mixing bowl and mix until smooth. Cover and place into the freezer until thickened.

  • Step 2

    Melt the chocolate and butter together over a bain marie. Stir frequently until melted then set aside to cool for 5 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Grease the frying pan and set to one side. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan-assisted.

  • Step 4

    Place the coconut sugar, eggs, cardamom, and vanilla into the bowl of a stand mixer with a whisk attachment and mix on medium-high until smooth. The mixture should form thick ribbons when the whisk is lifted.

  • Step 5

    Carefully pour in the melted chocolate, mix on low until combined. Remove the bowl from the stand mixer then add the remaining flours and cacao powder. Fold in until thick and glossy.

  • Step 6

    Pour the batter into the frying pan then spread evenly. Using the back of a spoon make wells into the mixture. Add the tahini mixture into the wells then take a skewer and swirl around.

  • Step 7

    Place the pan onto the lowest shelf of the oven and cook for 15 minutes before checking to see how cooked they are. Using a toothpick or knife test the outer 2″ of the batter, if the toothpick comes out with a few crumbs remaining, the sides of the brownie have come away from the tin then they are done. Another way of checking is to see if the brownies jiggle when you’ve given them shake, if they do then they probably need a few more minutes to cook. They should look set with a nice crust on top but be gooey on the inside. Once cooked remove and leave to cool a little before serving.
