Salted Date Tahini Cookies

salted date tahini cookies

This recipe was created for one of my favourite eco boutiques, Plaisirs and I'm delighted to share it with you here today. These cookies are so good and I love how they combine sweet and savoury flavours for a grown-up, indulgent treat. It's the perfect excuse, if ever one was needed, to put on some luxurious loungewear, have a home pamper session and curl up with a good book & movie and munch on these.

Three great health benefits: energy boosting, beneficial for bone health, promotes healthy skin

Makes 8

Generous 1/2 cup tahini
Generous 1/3 cup maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup gluten free oats
1/2 cup ground almonds
3/4 tsp sea salt
1 medjool date, pitted and finely chopped

1) Preheat oven to 190 degrees C. Line a baking tray with baking paper or a silicone mat.
2) In a small saucepan over a medium heat on the hob, melt together the tahini, maple syrup and vanilla. Set aside.
3) In a mixing bowl, combine the oats, ground almonds and salt then add the medjool date.
4) Add the tahini mixture to the dry ingredients and stir to throughly combine, ensuring that the date is evenly distributed. The mixture will come together in a loose ball.
5) Divide the mixture into eight and roll into balls (each one will be approx the size of an energy ball). Place onto the prepared baking tray, allowing space between each ball, and flatten them with the palm of your hand so that the resemble cookies.
6) Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely (this will allow the cookies to firm up a little) before enjoying.
