Tahini is my favorite. It can be transformed into something savory or sweet. It's smooth, nutty, and rich. It also tastes good in cookies. And fudge. And blondies.
One day I was sitting on the couch and thought to myself "I want cookies." I always have ingredients on hand, especially Enjoy Life chocolate chips (life is too short to not eat chocolate, let's be real). Luckily for you, this is the easiest dang cookie recipe you will find. If you don't have tahini- you could easily sub in any nut butter. If you don't have coconut sugar, you can also use brown sugar. The options are limitless, all you need is 20 minutes from start to finish until you have the crunchiest, nuttiest, caramelized cookies.
1 cup tahini (straight up ground sesame seeds- no added oils!)
1 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp sea salt & some cracked on top
Beat egg, combine rest of ingredients into a bowl and mix through.
Scoop onto baking sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 11-13 minutes or until golden on the bottom.
**Depending on which type of tahini you use, the batter may be a little oily. Trader Joe's tahini is the best, Sesame King tahini is a much more runny, but I added a couple extra minutes in the oven and still resulted in the same crunchy, nutty cookie!
By the way...these cookies are Dylan approved. I caught him in the act of eating 3 cookies in one sitting. Must be tough to live with someone who keeps baked goods readily available. Enjoy my friends!
