Recipe by Elana's Pantry
This lovely recipe was inspired from the tahini cookies recipe on epicurious.com, one of my favorite food sites. Below is my version, sans gluten and sugar. Here's the original post: http://www.elanaspantry.com/sesame-cookies/
- 1 1⁄4 cups blanched almond flour
- 1⁄4 teaspoon celtic sea salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄3 cup agave nectar
- 1⁄3 cup tahini (raw or roasted, though roasted will give more flavor)
- 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1⁄4 cup sesame seeds (hulled or unhulled -I used hulled)
