On your search for healthier alternatives to peanut butter, you’ve tried all kinds—everything from almond to sunflower seed to cashew butters. Some are hits and some are misses, but it’s always fun to try something new! Here’s one that may not have been on your list: sesame seed butter. Though similar to tahini or sesame seed paste, a main ingredient in hummus, this spread is thicker with a more subtle flavor. That means it’s adds a delightfully soft creaminess when mixed into a chocolate truffle. Try this recipe and see for yourself!
