I know, this is an unexpected surprise. One day back from Israel and I have a Tahini inspired recipe for you! You see that’s the thing – that’s how much I knew you needed these Salted Chocolate Chip Tahini Cookies. I wanted to get them to you ASAP.
You guys always say that you never know that my recipes are gluten free so let’s start there – these Salted Chocolate Chip Tahini Cookies are vegan and gluten free and delishhhh. So you can spread them on a table and anyone can dive right in! To make them gluten free, I of course ran (okay, my pantry’s not that far away) to my endless supply of Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour. I love them in cookies and basically all baked goods because they perfectly absorb all of the flavours and act as a beautiful vessel. Like a star player, essentially. The mix is so smooth and just blends beautifully here. Plus of course, it means they are safe to serve to anyone! It’s the season of sharing – so let’s share!!
Now the cookies! Salted. Chocolate Chip. Tahini Cookies. These are all wonderful things by themselves and combined make a super cookie whose dough might not even make it to the oven. The salted happens at the end, and really adds a burst of flavour to the cookies, plus looks gorgeous. The chocolate Chip part – well, let’s be honest, chocolate chip cookies are the best, aren’t they? Little pools of melted chocolate are always accepted in my book. Then my favourite part of the flavour of the cookies – the Tahini.
As a quick intro, Tahini also known as Tahina is sesame seed paste, or kind of like a sesame seed butter. If you’re like me, maybe you’ve tasted Tahini outside of the Middle East and kind of made up your face. Bitter. Grainy. Not good. I couldn’t understand why this was supposed to make my hummus better! That was all until my most recent trip to Israel. Tahini is supposed to be nutty, buttery and 100% smooth. Imagine my shock and surprise when I tasted real tahini for the first time. Needless to say that by the end of the trip it was crucial for me to lug home a giant jar of it, as I did. I say all of this because the right tahini is what will make the difference in your cookies. Get one that’s very runny, smooth, and has a nutty flavour.
These Salted Chocolate Chip Tahini Cookies will knock your socks off. Like I mentioned above, I highly recommend the Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour in these cookies for the extra softness, and ability to share with everyone. You guys know I love Bob’s Red Mill’s flours!! These cookies are best warm out of the oven, cooled for like ten minutes, but of course, are still divine after that. I highly recommend not over baking them since they continue to cook while they cool. Under-baking them means a soft, chewy and divine cookie to dive into. Enjoy friends!
