These 7 ingredient tahini cookies are seriously good. I have been making these for the past month and include them as a treat every few days. They are the perfect snack in the afternoon with a cup of tea or I break the cookie up and mix it in with some coconut yoghurt plus cinnamon.
Now a little insight into Tahini. You may be wondering what it is. It’s a paste made from ground sesame seeds and have similar consistency to a nut butter. Tahini is a great source of iron and calcium, great additions for those who follow a plant-based diet.
