Tasty Tahini cookies

20120906-193300.jpg

I discovered tahini cookies at the health food store recently and have spent way too much money purchasing them every time I’m in or around the shops. Thus, I decided to make my own, based on the ingredients in the store bought variety, and low and behold, they were a great success!

Tahini (made from ground sesame seeds) is super good for you. Chocka block full of calcium and vitamin B, therefor being especially amazing for people who don’t partake in animal by products, as both of those nutrients are hard to attain otherwise.

Tahini cookies:

Wet:
1 cup tahini
1/2 cup honey
2 TBS peanut butter or melted coconut oil
2 tsp vanilla

Dry:
1/2 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup fine flaked coconut
1/2 TBS cinnamon

Combine wet, combine dry, combine together, add: 10 ish soaked and chopped dates, Handful peanuts or other nuts, (dark choc chips would be amazing too)

I baked them in a crescent muffin tin thing so they would come out a round-ish shape. They took a while to bake at about 200. Typical me, I did not time it. I’m going to guess about half an hour tho.

Once they have cooled a bit pour melted chocolate over top!! Soo goood!!

Melted choc:

Couple TBS coconut oil melted
Couple TBS cacao
Bit of honey

Stir it up adjust to your taste.

Enjoy the health benefits and the tantalising taste of these tasty tahini treats!!

Holy mother do I have an update on these!!!!
I made them again with coconut oil instead of peanut butter and added two tablespoons of cacao and they are dangerously good.
