Soft inside and crunchy on the edges, these raw cocoa and sesame tahini cookies will make the perfect indulgence to accompany your morning coffee and inspire a lovely day. You can make them fully vegan or vegetarian (as I did), in any way they are awfully tasty and packed with good nutrients. On top of that, putting them together does not require much time and effort.
I have always thought that cocoa and sesame tahini will team up perfectly. So when I saw a half-full jar of raw sesame tahini and laying casually in my pantry, it immediately felt necessary to combine them in a sweet treat. The recipe I made up on the go with what I had at hand and to my self-content the cookies turned out pleasantly good. One should always trust their baking instincts! :)
So there they are! My unpretentious raw cocoa sesame tahini cookies that will provide you with the right amount of energy and sweet goodness to get your day going.
Unfortunately, I can’t tell you how many delightful cookies you will make with this recipe as about half of them were already gone as soon as they were out of the oven… :)
3 eggs or 3 flax seed eggs
2 cups of whole meal flour
1 cup of brown sugar
½ cup of vegetable oil
6 tbsp of raw cocoa powder
6 tbsp of raw sesame tahini
½ cup of unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp of bourbon vanilla sugar (or a dash of vanilla extract)
½ tsp (a pinch) Himalayan salt
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
- Blend together the eggs, vegetable oil, almond milk, brown sugar and bourbon vanilla into a wet runny substance. I used my NutriBullet blender to accomplish this task easily and quickly.
- In a bowl combine all of the remaining dry ingredients – the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
- Merge the wet and dry mixtures and stir until a dough-like substance is formed.
- Almost and the very end add in the sesame tahini and continue stirring to blend it in. The result should be a sticky dough.
- Using a spoon distribute small pieces of the dough on to the lined baking tray. Here you may use your imagination, of course, and make your cookies prettier than mine J
- Bake for not more than 10-12 minutes.
