    These sound delicious! I’m going to substitute peanut butter for tahini and see how it works out.

    You mean there is another use for that jar of tahini than hummus?

    Thank you so much!

    Ooh! Ooh! I’m gonna make these too. Sesame anything = yum. In the past I have been in the same dilemma as Kel. Finally a way to use of the tahini!

    What a great excuse to go get some tahini! Usually I hesitate because I’m not sure what else I would do with it other than make a lot of Middle Eastern food, but these brownies sound awesome!

    a *seriously* good brownie. i didn’t have quite enough tahini so i just topped up with peanut butter.
    the rum adds a special something, definitely worth the inclusion.
    making this again for sure!

    Hi, A friend pointed out this recipe and thought they looked great, although I ended up replacing the tahini with almond butter and the rum with amaretto..but they turned out great (there are picture on my blog http://sthingmissing.blogspot.com/2011/11/amaretto-almond-brownies.html). Thanks for the inspiration :o)

    Tahini (sesame seeds in general) is a great anti-inflammatory. If you’re experiencing back, neck or joint pain, it’s a great excuse to eat more tahini. About a teaspoon a day will help! Great excuse to have these brownies around and even garnish each one with a little dollop of tahini!

    Wondering if I can substitute applesauce or maple syrup for the sugar?
