Thick, chewy, and buttery chocolate chunk tahini cookies. These cookies are just like your traditional chocolate chip cookie but with a hint of nutty flavor from tahini and laced with chocolate chunks that melt into puddles of chocolate. They are simply down right delectable!
I may have a new bff and her name is Tahini. I don’t know why I’m just now discovering this masterpiece but she’s here to stay. With a slight nutty flavor and the consistency of peanut butter, Tahini pairs well practically anything. You may have seen her in your salad dressings or hummus dip, but mixed in with something sweet like chocolate and coconut sugar and the result is wonderful. I’m wiling to bet these Tahini Chocolate Chunk Cookies may be your new favorite cookie!
What the Heck is Tahini?
Good question. Tahini is, simply put, ground up sesame seeds. There are various types, of course - dark roasted. light roasted, black tahini (made from black sesame seeds). Tahini should be creamy and slightly nutty but above all, addicting AF. Think of it as peanut butter’s cousin. When’s the last time you dove into a jar of peanut butter spoon first and put the lid back on after only a teaspoon? Probably never, if you’re anything like me. Tahini is basically the same. Really good tahini can be hard to find. I’ll save you the trouble of searching and just tell you, this one is the BEST!Print
