Chocolate Tahini Cookies
Following our Tahini Cookie recipe, I bet you still have some leftover ingredients in your pantry. And before it comes to waste, why not make it into another tahini cookie recipe but only a little sinful (but not much) because of the addition of chunky chocolate bits and an egg? However, because they are baked with tahini and almond flour, these cookies provide a satisfying mix of guilt-free pleasures.
Your Favorite Cookie: Only Better!
Who doesn’t love a chocolate chip cookie? Warm, gooey, and full of chocolatey goodness, they’re the perfect treat. But let’s be honest; we all know that they’re not exactly healthy. So that’s when Chocolate Tahini Cookie will take place. Same delicious goodness as your classic chocolate chip cookie but is made even better using wholesome ingredients like almond flour and coconut sugar. And, of course, tahini. If you haven’t tried tahini before, it’s a creamy paste made from ground sesame seeds. It adds a delicious nuttiness to these cookies, taking them to the next level. So if you’re looking for a healthy cookie option that doesn’t sacrifice flavor, look no further than the Chocolate Tahini Cookie.
Flat vs. Chunky Cookies
If your cookies always turn out flat, chances are your oven is too hot. The butter tends to melt super quickly in a too-hot oven before the other ingredients have firmed up into a cookie structure. Therefore, as the butter spreads, so does the whole liquid cookie. In order to address this issue, some prefer to chill the dough for 10-20 minutes before baking it.
However, these Chocolate Tahini Cookies will be relatively on the chunkier side for this recipe. The main reason is that I did not use any butter, and the cookie dough is thick and sticky; thus, chilling is unnecessary.
Let’s Make it Vegan
You can turn this recipe into a vegan version. Simply remove the egg and replace it with any of the listed below: ( 1 egg replacement for cookie dough)
- 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed + 3 tbsp water
- ¼ cup (4 tablespoons) Apple sauce
- ¼ cup (4 tablespoons) Silken Tofu
- ½ a medium-sized Banana, mashed
Just choose which one is available and what you prefer. As for the chocolate chips, you can find vegan options available in vegan stores or online.
Chocolate Tahini Cookies
- 1 large egg
- ½ cup tahini
- ½ cup blanched almond flour
- ½ cup coconut sugar
- ½ tsp baking powder
- 1 cup 70% dark chocolate bar (or higher), coarsely chopped ( you can add more if you want)
- ¼ tsp salt coarse
- While preheating your oven to 350°F, you can go ahead and prepare your baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.
- Combine the egg, tahini, almond flour, coconut sugar, and baking powder in a medium bowl. The result will be thick and sticky.
- Add your chopped chocolate bits.
- Using an ice cream scoop, place a spoonful of cookie batter on the baking sheet.
- Once you've used up all the dough, keep doing this, spacing each cookie about 212 inches apart.
- Scoop 2 tablespoons per biscuit if you like your cookies bigger.
- Repeat these steps until you finish off all the dough, spacing each cookie about 2½ inches apart.
- You can double the scoop per cookie if you prefer to have a larger cookie.
- Sprinkle some coarse salt on top.
- Bake for 8 to 9 minutes, keeping an eye on them because they can get too dark easily. On top, they should only be a little browned.
- Let your chocolate tahini cookies cool completely for 10 minutes on the baking sheet. Then transfer it to a serving plate or container for storage.
- Baked cookies can be kept for two days. However, if you want to keep them longer, for three to four months, place these lovelies in the freezer.
