Halva muffins (Plus: April Kosher Connection linkup!)

By | April 23, 2014


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.
