Tahini & Granola Fudge
Have Butter Will Travel
Hi folks I’m happy to share a wonderful guest post with you from some keto friends all the way from Australia. Dan and Erika of Have Butter will Travel sent me this amazing tahini fudge recipe. I adore tahini and love using it in sauces, sweets, and baking. If you have a jar languishing at the back of your cupboard that you haven’t used since the last time you made hummus, dig it out and get ready to make this fudge.
You probably have the rest of the ingredients in the house already. The one exception to that is my keto friendly granola; I love how they incorporated it into this recipe and you can buy it from my etsy shop if you would like to. If you don’t have it never fear you can substitute an equal amount of your favorite toasted nuts, seeds, or coconut chips.
And now I’m going to turn it over to Dan and Erika
Hi! We are Dan and Erika the creators of Have Butter will Travel!
We currently live in Melbourne, Australia and started Have Butter will Travel so we can
share our two passions – low carb/ keto eating and travelling.
We are super passionate about sharing what we have learnt in the 2 years that we have been living a ketogenic lifestyle.
At Have Butter will Travel our focus is on providing quick and easy recipes that show how easy keto can be.
We also love to share our experiences of travelling on a ketogenic lifestyle.
We have discovered a new way to travel, which is finding the best keto friendly food options
in each place we visit. Our blog has some great articles on the best keto eats in various cities we have travelled to.
This recipe uses the delicious Keto Cooking School granola, which can be purchased here. It works well with any of the granola flavours, but we prefer the Sweet Cinnamon version.
Tahini is a spread made with hulled sesame seeds that originated in the Middle East. It is a popular ingredient used in Middle Eastern cuisine and can be used in hummus, halva and baba ghanoush. It is also a great low carb ingredient and is great for low carb baking.

This fudge is a bite sized treat. Something you may have after dinner to satisfy your sweet
craving in place of having a full dessert. It is best served straight from the fridge as it will
soften at room temperature.
It also stores well in the freezer, so it’s a great idea to make a batch of the fudge and cut it
into the serving size and then store it in the freezer for when you crave a sweet treat. Erika
even likes to eat it straight from the freezer!
