Don't be afraid of the nutty flavor that comes tahini. The unique flavor will remind you of peanut butter. This cookie is a wonderful cookie to try if you are looking for something new. Tahini can be found in some grocery stores and most whole foods stores.
- 1⁄3 cup tahini
- 1⁄2 cup honey
- 1 cup quick-cooking oats
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄4 cup pecans, chopped
- 1⁄4 cup raisins
- 1⁄4 cup dark chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 325.
- Combine tahini and honey in a medium bowl and stir until combined. Add the cinnamon and oats to the mixture and stir until incorporated. Add the nuts, raisins, and chips to the dough and stir until combined.
- Drop dough by the rounded teaspoon onto a greased baking sheet. Bake until edges are golden brown and the center is set.
- Remove and cool completely on a wire rack.
Great cookie! To answer the other chef's question: tahini and honey don't require egg to bind, they make a mix that bakes up nicely without binder. These were perfect, not too sweet. After 15 minutes they were perfectly chewy. Thanks for posting! Made for Healthy Choices ABC.
I haven't made these but am wondering what holds these cookies together? It seems like they would crumble apart without an egg or some other binder.
