Tahini and dark chocolate cookies

Tahini and dark chocolate cookies

Crunchy and chewy!

I think I talked about my love for tahini before, I use it a lot in my cooking, and it also works great in baked goods!

I found this recipe on the blog The Boy Who Bakes, and it turned out great so I decided to share it with you! The texture is perfect to me, a bit crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. The tahini flavor is pretty light but still here and I put less chocolate chips because as much as I love it, I didn’t want it to overpower the other ingredients.

As I explained before, I live by myself, so when I make cookies, I simply bake a few and put the others, raw, in a food container in the freezer. I just bake them when I want to and don’t feel forced to eat cookies at every meal for a week 😉

Using a stand up mixer with a paddle attachment, beat the butter, tahini and brown sugar until light and fluffy.

Lastly, add the chocolate chips and mix briefly.

Refrigerate for a couple of hours.

Preheat the oven up to 350°C.

Using an ice-cream scoop – I used the yellow one – shape the cookies and dip them in sesame seeds. Place on a tray lined with parchment paper.
