Game Changing Tahini Chocolate Chunk Cookies
These tahini cookies are always a hit - try for yourself and let us know what you think!
1/2 c Seed + Mill Organic Tahini
1/2 c (1 stick) butter
1/4 c sugar
1 1/4 c brown sugar
1/2 c chocolate chips
1/2 c Seed + Mill Halva (we like using our Toasted Sesame flavor best, but any flavor will work!)
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp sea salt flakes
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 °F. In a stand mixer, combine butter, tahini, sugar. Turn on to medium speed and beat until smooth. Add egg, vanilla and increase speed, beating until fluffy. Turn off the mixer and add flour, baking soda, baking powder and mix on low speed until combined. Lastly, using a spatula, fold in chocolate chips and halva.
2. Scoop balls of dough on parchment lined baking sheets and sprinkle sea salt over dough. Bake for 10-14 mins until golden and tops are crackly. We always give the baking sheet a bang on the counter while the cookies are still hot, to increase the crackliness!
Dough will freeze well for up to 6 months. We ALWAYS make a double batch to keep for next time!

This recipe comes from Jessie Sheehan's new book Snackable Bakes, which we cannot wait to bake our way through!
"These are a take on my MIL’s Oh Henry!® bars, a fantastically chewy and flavorful bar cookie, that gives off plenty of the caramel/peanut/chocolate vibes of the actual candy. That is due to a slightly nutty oat base that is briefly cooked on the stovetop, baked, and then topped with a chocolate glaze. They were on regular rotation when my husband was growing up and I’m still jealous about that. Here, I’ve given them a little tahini makeover (usually they call for peanut butter) and I’m pretty darn excited about it."
We had a lot of fun making these skewers with the vegan kelp “meat” made by our friends at Akua! Anything that involves a grill, warm weather, good company and delicious whole ingredient food is going to keep us happy!
We paired these skewers with a vibrant, herby tahini sauce that is perfect as a skewer dipping, drizzle sauce, salad dressing or crudite dip!
