So a few months ago you bought a jar of tahini for that mad hummus craving and now you’re unsure of what to do with the remaining three quarters? Well my friend, I have just the solution for you (well, for a 1/3 cups worth at least)! What, where, how? Mixed into these delicious (yet oh so simple) three ingredient sesame seed cookies (yes, THREE)- which, may i add; are naturally free of gluten, refined-sugar and dairy.
In addition; what makes this recipe so damn brilliant is that it can either be baked into “regular” cookies (by simply adding 1 tsp baking soda and baking them for 8-10 minutes at 160C) OR enjoyed raw as is, in delicious fudge form. Droool.
1 1/2 cup almond meal
1/3 cup honey (or maple)
1/3 cup hulled tahini
1/4 cup sesame seeds (optional)
Place THREE main ingredients in food processor and whizz away until a dough-like mixture is formed.
If wanting to keep fingers in tact, turn off food processor, then, using your hands roll bits of dough into small balls.
Coat balls in sesame seeds (optional) then using a fork or your fingers or whatever else you desire (as long as it’s hygienic) flatten each ball into a cookie shape.
Keep cookies in freezer between snacking, allowing 1-2 minutes of thawing time before nom nom.
