cinnamon tahini cookies by kalejunkie



1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1 1/2 cups almond flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup tahini
1/3 cup raw manuka honey (I love the Wedderspoon brand)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon

You guys, I legit cannot stop making things with tahini lately. Just check out my Sesame Tahini Banana Bread and my Sea Salt Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies, and you will see what I mean. Today I am combining my love of honey and cinnamon with tahini, as well as lots of sesame seeds, and you've got yourself the perfect anytime snacking cookie. They are perfectly crispy on the outside, and soft and chewy on the inside, with the perfect cinnamon-y taste! 

So without further ado, get your bowl ready, roll up your sleeves, and LET'S GET RIGHT TO IT. Random thought, but notice how many blogs you visit, only to be greeted on the author's blog post with their life summary or a day in the life?! There is nothing wrong with that, but I'm over here like JUST GIVE ME THE RECIPE. So here you go, friends! 


Makes 12 Cookies


Preheat oven to 350.
Line your baking sheet with a
Silpat (MY OBSESSION) or a piece of parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the tahini, honey, and vanilla extract.
Next, add the salt, almond flour, baking soda, and cinnamon, and mix together well.
Using a spoon or cookie scoop, form cookies.
Roll each one in sesame seeds and place onto the baking sheet.
Bake for about 8 to 9 minutes, until golden on top. Enjoy!
