This weekend I decided to give a new recipe a go! I love chocolate chip cookies but was looking for a healthy spin. I came across KaleJunkie on Instagram, and her raved-about "Life Changing Chocolate Chip Tahini Cookies". Well, I have to say, they were raved about for good reason! These are THE BEST chocolate chip cookies I've ever made!
The secret ingredient is obviously the Tahini, which is like a nut butter made from sunflower seeds! It makes the cookies sooo creamy and moist, it's the best cookie texture ever. Crispy on the edges and gooier in the middle, to die for! The recipe also uses almond flour and pure maple syrup, allowing you to avoid refined sugars and trade normal flour for something more nutritious, lower carb, and gluten free!
Right after I made them I gave fresh cookies to 3 friends and they all freaked out about how delicious they were. I would say the only downside is that the ingredients are not cheap, but if you are looking for a healthier cookie that tastes insanely good, look no further!!
Here's photos of my finished cookies!
