Raw Cocoa Sesame Tahini Cookies

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… :)

1 cup of brown sugar

½ cup of vegetable oil

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. 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.
  3. In a bowl combine all of the remaining dry ingredients – the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
  4. Merge the wet and dry mixtures and stir until a dough-like substance is formed.
  5. Almost and the very end add in the sesame tahini and continue stirring to blend it in. The result should be a sticky dough.
  6. 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
  7. Bake for not more than 10-12 minutes.

Enjoy!
