These super yummy and easy Tahini Choc Chip Cookies have been made over and over at my house. They're Gluten-Free, Vegan (obviously) and utterly addictive to eat! Best of all? They're low in sugar and high in protein and in calcium too! Yay!
I've made these Tahini Cookies with Doisy and Dam Peanut D&D's which are a bit like M&Ms but vegan - and YUMMIER! (P.R. Gift) and I can tell you, they take these cookies to another level. But don't worry, you can also use regular choc chips, or even smash up your favourite chocolate bar and use shards of that. I've tested them all ways and they are good whichever way you choose. (Buy Doisy and Dam here or on Amazon here).
For the full list of ingredients for the Tahini Choc Chip Cookies, scroll to the recipe below!
- Tahini -Tahini is the key ingredient in these cookies! Made from pure sesame seeds, tahini is delicious in both savoury and sweet dishes, and happens to be a powerhouse of nutrients! It's high in protein, and is a source of calcium, magnesium and iron. Buy it in jars from the supermarket, from your favourite international veggie store or online.
- Chickpea Flour - Also known as gram flour. Naturally gluten free and made from chickpeas, so high in protein and fibre!
- Choc Chips - You can choose to use regular chocolate chips (vegan!) or a candy style sweet such as Doisy & Dam D&D's.
