I bought this huge jar of tahini the other day to make salad dressing the other day, only to realize that I only ever really eat salads when I’m feeling extra extra extra healthy…which is like never. I’ve seen tahini-based desserts on my Pinterest feed for a really long time, and I’ve always been a little skeptical. But with all of this extra tahini I’ve got to use up, I thought I’d give tahini cookies a try. And GUYS it is soooooooooooooo good! ^_^
These tahini cookies taste like a milder version of a peanut butter cookie, with a slight hint of sesame. I was not expecting to love these cookies so much! The second time I made them, I threw in peanut butter chips in addition to the chocolate chips, and it definitely adds a much appreciated nutty sweetness. They’re probably my top 3 cookies I’ve ever made, and you can bet I’ll be making them again next week.
Speaking of being healthy, I just recently did a juice cleanse–the one by Pressed. And let me just say, I will not be doing it again anytime soon! The two days of a juice-only diet were pure torture: I don’t think I’ve ever been as hungry in my life. Though it did put me in a healthy sort of mindset that I’ve been maintaining pretty well since then, I don’t think I’d adamantly recommend anyone do it on a regular basis. Most of the juices were disgusting to the point where I had to plug my nose to force it down. Totally unrelated to the cookies, but I thought I’d share. Lol
