*Eat Green* exclusive: Tahini Choc Chip Cookies

This is a very special exclusive recipe from new cookbook *Eat Green* which is out now. Click here to get your hands on a copy if you haven’t yet.

The vegan version of these Tahini Choc Chip Cookies are just as delicious, none of us can decide which we love the most. Store these cakey cookies in an airtight container for 5 days. You could warm them briefly in the oven to give them a little crispening boost. The dough freezes well so double up and save half for a rainy day. Just defrost, then slice into portions before putting in the oven. For a nut-free alternative, swap the nut butter for seed butter or tahini.

  1. Preheat the oven to fan 170°C/gas mark 5. Line a large baking tray with reusable baking paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs then mix in the baking powder, maple syrup and vanilla extract. Add the tahini and nut butter and mix together until very well combined.
  3. Roughly chop the chocolate (if not using chips) and fold through the batter along with the sesame seeds.
  4. Measure out 16 balls of the cookie batter, roughly 1 tablespoon each, and bake for 10–15 minutes on the lined baking tray (making sure to leave a little room between each one) until the cookies are just set. Remove from the oven, sprinkle with a little sea salt and allow to cool on a wire rack before serving.

    They sound delicious! Just wondering — do these not have any type of flour in them?
