We’re mothers. We get how difficult it is sometimes (or most of the time) getting in breakfast, let alone a healthy one.
We’re honestly so thankful we can offer nutritious and delicious products that can easily be incorporated into breakfasts. Tahini packs a nutritional punch in each serving, especially when it comes to plant-based protein, iron, and calcium. The high levels of iron help the flow of oxygen throughout your body, which generates energy and prevents fatigue. In addition, tahini is rich in other minerals including copper, magnesium, zinc, and selenium. These minerals are extremely important for optimal health. These minerals in particular work to also keep your immune system strong and healthy.
You can use Soom products for various, decadent, and leisurely breakfasts whether in shakshuka, tahini chocolate chip blender muffins, and hummingbird cinnamon rolls. However, we’re going to share some extremely quick and simple ways to get in breakfast that’s not only easy, but delicious and nutrient-dense, too!
Why you should add Soom to your breakfast
We think it’s really important to discuss the nutritional benefits of our products. And as mothers, it’s really important we find ways we can incorporate our products into meals our children want to eat, too. Not only to make it easier for us, but also to provide them with essential vitamins and nutrients like those they might not intaking regularly.
Simply put, sesame seeds, the main (and only) ingredient in Soom Tahini is a truly mighty seed. This teeny, tiny seed is full of essential nutrients – including healthy fats, plant-based calcium, iron, protein, and omega 6 fatty acids. It’s even packed with copper, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, and selenium. So, Soom Tahini packs a nutritional punch in every tablespoon! Further, Soom Tahini is incredibly beneficial for prenatal and postnatal care.
In addition, dates are full of vitamins. Dates are the only ingredient found in Soom Silan. Dates are packed with soluble fiber, magnesium, copper, and manganese, and even laxative properties.
How to add Soom to your breakfast
Above, we shared some reasons why you should include Soom products into your breakfast. But besides the nutritional and “quick” attributes of our offerings, they add tremendous flavor to your meals. Below are easy and decadent ways to add tahini, chocolate sweet tahini, and silan date syrup to your breakfast. We’re also sharing some make-ahead breakfasts that are perfect to store a stash in the freezer in case you only have time for opening the freezer before heading out!
Breakfasts that take 5 minutes or less
Skip the hassle of breakfast and toast some hearty bread with a schmear of Soom Chocolate Sweet Tahini to create our Chocolate Tahini Toast with Bananas and Chia Seeds. It’s an easy on-the-go breakfast and one that will keep you satisfied until your next snack or meal. Top it off with bananas and chia seeds for a little extra enjoyment.

We’re obsessed with Suraya’s tehina yogurt bowl here in Philly. For those who aren’t able to easily come to Philly to enjoy it, we created our own spin on the beloved yogurt bowl! We topped ours with pomegranate seeds, sliced almonds, granola, and Soom Tahini and Soom Silan for a breakfast that will never get old. Try topping yogurt with your favorite fruits, nuts, and seeds along with tahini and silan, too for an easy yet complete breakfast bowl.
A yogurt parfait with a chocolate tahini drizzle is the perfect way to start your day. If you’re short on time, this yogurt parfait comes together in less than 5 minutes. Get in your chocolate fix for the day with this simple breakfast.
Make our Chocolate Tahini Smoothie and take it on the go with you! It’s sweet, chocolatey, slightly nutty, delicious, and nutritious. Basically, it consists of everything you want in a smoothie! For an additional chocolate layer, top the smoothie with a drizzle of Soom Chocolate Sweet Tahini.
A drizzle of chocolate sweet tahini is a no-brainer when it comes to elevating your frozen waffles! The longest process here is toasting up a waffle, but even that is a quick task in this breakfast! Most importantly, it’s both kid and adult-friendly.
Breakfasts to prepare the night before
If you’re craving nutty, warm, and super chocolatey muffins, we highly recommend whipping up a batch of these nutrition-packed Double Chocolate Tahini Banana Muffins! They’re gluten-free, perfectly tender, moist, and so chocolatey, you’ll forget they’re actually good for you. The tahini addition creates a delicious nuttiness that counters the sweetness of the chocolate chips and bananas.
Serve warm for breakfast, brunch, or as a mid-afternoon snack for children and adults. Keep them in the fridge for up to 5 days or place them in the freezer and grab one on a morning where you’re running out the door.
For a delicious winter-inspired breakfast, make these silan-sweetened gingerbread overnight oats! They’re layored with flavor and perfect for grab and go the morning you’re in a hurry.
Say goodbye to store-bought granola and hello to homemade perfection! Soom CEO Amy Zitelman’s Maple Tahini Granola from her cookbook The Tahini Table is the only granola recipe you’ll ever need. Not only is it refined sugar-free and full of wholesome ingredients, but it is also super versatile! Pour it into a bowl, top off a parfait, or grab a baggy full of it to munch on to avoid that mid-afternoon crash that always seems to fall right around 3 o’clock. This recipe is perfect to enjoy throughout the week for yourself in addition to feeding the kiddos so they don’t go hungry.
This silan and tahini banana bread is a delicious breakfast alternative. It’s perfectly moist and pairs well with a cup of coffee or milk. Pack a slice for an on-the-go breakfast or snack to enjoy over the course of the day.
If you’re craving nutty, warm, and chocolately muffins, we highly recommend whipping up a batch of these. They’re gluten-free, perfectly tender, moist, and fluffy. Blitz all ingredients in a blender and pour the batter into a muffin tin. Place them in the freezer or store them at room temperature under a loose tea towel for up to 3 days.
If we had to choose one dessert (or breakfast!) to make throughout the fall and winter months, we’d choose our Tahini Apple Crumble. This elevated tahini fruit dessert wins major points. It’s more nutritious and easier to assemble than a pie, but even more satisfying. It makes for a super tasty breakfast option, too!
