READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by hannahactually

YUM! This is a delicious quickbread with an intriguing (and tasty) twist! The tahini adds a rich source of protein and a distinctly nutty flavor to this hearty bread. If you don't have sunflower oil, vegetable oil will do.

This had a little too much tahini flavor which overpowered the lemon. The texture is good. The ingredient list isn't in order of instructions, so had to jump around a lot. With some tweaking, this might get a higher review. Sorry.
