Cookies for Breakfast
baking takes on a healthy twist as we are always aiming to create delicious goodies that contribute to instead of sabotage our health.
Tahini (ground sesame seeds) is rich in calcium, magnesium, several B vitamins and good healthy fats. Almond flour is packed with protein and good fat too. We love ginger for its anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties.
Wanna try em’? Check out the recipe. These firm up once they cool and are nice and chewy.
Honey Tahini Cookies
Ingredients ½ cup Sesame Seeds 1 ½ cups Almond Flour ½ tsp Baking Soda ¼ tsp Sea Salt ⅓ cup Honey ⅓ cup Tahini 1 tsp Vanilla Extract 1 tsp Ginger
1. Preheat oven to 350. Line 1 large or two medium cookie sheets with parchment. 2. Spread sesame seeds into a pie plate. 3. In a small bowl, combine almond flour, baking soda,ginger and salt.
4. In a large bowl, combine honey, tahini and vanilla. 5. Then mix dry into wet (seems like its not liquid enough at first but it does combine – you will need to use your hands to press and hold together to form a ball).
6. Scoop dough into small balls (about 1 rounded tablespoon). Roll in sesame seeds, then flatten them into 1/4 inch thick rounds. 7. Transfer to baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes. 8. Remove from oven even though they are still quite soft. They WILL firm up when cooled.
