Tahini Maple Cookies

Does anyone else use Instagram primarily to find amazing food pics and recipes!?  One of our go to pages is @veggiekins because her feed looks delicious AF, and is super healthy.  We asked her to share one of her favorite recipes and she blessed us with the a killer maple tahini cookie recipe.  These are easy to make and also vegan, gluten free, refined sugar and oil free, and most importantly they taste fab. Seriously, these cookies are a crowd pleaser among even the pickiest of eaters.

What you’ll need:

1 1/3 cup oat flour
1/2 cup tahini
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla powder or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
optional
1 teaspoon maca powder
1 teaspoon mesquite powder                                                                                                     1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
Sesame seeds for garnish

Instructions:

  1.  Preheat your oven to 350F
    Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl until a nice dough forms and the mixture sticks together.
  2. Roll golf ball sized balls of dough and press down slightly onto a lined baking sheet to make cookie shapes, leaving space between the cookies as they spread a little bit in the oven. Here you can sprinkle and press in some sesame seeds on top for garnish.
  3. Bake your cookies for 8-9 minutes (they may seem undercooked, but check to see that the bottom is slightly golden brown).
  4. Let the cookies cool so they firm up a bit, but don’t worry – they’ll maintain their chewy texture! If you like firmer cookies, you can let them bake for an additional 3-5 minutes.
  5. Enjoy 🙂

 

**This is a great recipe to sneak some adaptogen powders into! The maca and mesquite add a really nice caramelly flavour and you get the added health benefits as well, but you can certainly omit these ingredients.

Thanks @veggiekins for the recipe!!!
