Tahini Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies:
These tahini oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are going to be the perfect quarantine treat. These cookies are gluten-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free, egg-free, and vegan. And the nice thing about these cookies is that they can be meal prepped ahead of time and frozen if you want to save some for another day.
Ingredients you will need:
These are the ingredients I used based off what I had in my pantry. But feel free to use what you have in your pantry.
- Maple syrup
- Flaxseed meal
- Filtered water
- Sprouted gluten-free oats
- Almond flour
- Evolved cashew cookie dough chocolate bar (substitute any type of chocolate you have on hand)
How to prepare dough:
Preparing the dough is easy. First, I prepared my flax “eggs,” by mixing the flaxseed meal with the filtered water, and letting it sit for 10 minutes. And once the flax “eggs” have a gel like consistency, I added to a bowl along with tahini, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and mix. Next, add in the oats, salt, almond flour, and mix. Fold in the chopped cashew cookie dough bar, mix, and refrigerate dough for 30 minutes.
I used a tbsp ice cream scoop to scoop out chilled dough, and added to a lined baking sheet. Gently flatten cookies with the palm of your hand and chop with more chopped chocolate on top. And bake 350 F for 9-11 minutes. And once they are done baking sprinkle some flaky sea salt on top and enjoy!
I prefer storing mine in an airtight container in the refrigerator. But if you don’t plan on eating them all at once, I would suggest freezing for another day. And if you freeze, all you have to do is let sit at room temperature, or reheat in convection oven.
Any substitute ingredients?
Please note I don’t have any substitutes for this recipe, because I used what I have on hand right now. But feel free to try other variations and let me know what works over on Instagram. And of course, I can’t wait to see all your creations! Because it truly makes me so happy to see you all tagging me in your creations.
