I love using tahini, but was pretty wary of using it in sweet recipes until my mom made me these no-bake cookies. You can’t taste the tahini at all- just an extra rich chocolate flavor.
Since they’re no bake, they are perfect for the summer- no need to turn on your oven!
3 tablespoons tahini
1/4 cup cocoa powder
5 tbsp coconut oil
4 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 cup rolled oats (I use GF ones)
a pinch of salt
maldon salt or sea salt for garnish
Line a muffin tin with cupcake liners. In a medium pot over low heat, melt coconut oil until liquid. Remove from heat, stir in tahini, cocoa, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon and salt. Stir until smooth. Remove from heat and stir in rolled oats, spoon mixture into cupcake liners. Sprinkle maldon or sea salt on top of each cookie (optional, but recommended). Freeze for 20 minutes or until set, then store in fridge.
