  1. Looks great! Is there a substitute for tahini? I don’t use it often and wondering if there is another option that would produce the same result without me buying a whole new container of something. 🙂

      • I use gelatin eggs in another brownie recipe and feel pretty sure it would work for Diana in this one as well. Usually 1TBS gelatin/egg with 4 TBS water. Sprinkle gelatin on top of water and let sit for 5 minutes. Turn on low heat and wisk until dissolved, keep wisking until frothy. Add to mixture and proceed according to directions. I hope that helps.

  2. These are delicious! Perfectly fudgy and the pumpkin on top is great. Since I used an 8×8, the pumpkin ‘swirl’ ended up just being a complete layer on top, which still worked out great. Now lets hope I dont eat the whole pan today and tomorrow!
