This recipe originally appeared in the June 17, 2013 edition of “From Tali’s Kitchen,” my cooking column in Binah magazine. (What took me so long to share this??)

I should be telling you about the fantastic chametz dishes I’ve cooked since we made havdala on Monday night. Except I haven’t made much yet, and I can’t even say I missed chametz in nearly two weeks of cooking and eating Pesach food. Go figure.

As we restock the kitchen, though, muffins are at the top of my list. Most weeks, I make a big batch of some kind of muffin to have on hand for breakfast, and I also try to keep sugar-free ones in the freezer for the toddler who has yet to meet “real” baked goods.

I can’t quite decide whether these halva muffins should be for breakfast or dessert. They’re totally halva-ed out, with honey and tahini paste in the actual muffin, a square of halva in the middle, and a moist halva crumble for the top. Ready to get back into chametz baking? Indulge your inner halva monster and give these awesome things a try.
