SoCo Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies [Food Processor Attachment]

It may sound a little weird, but trust us — this is a great combination. The Date Tahini complements the chocolate chip cookie very well.

  • ½ cup (120 ml) maple syrup
  • ½ cup (120 ml) water
  • 1 ½ cups (135 g) rolled oats
  • 1 ½ cups (175 g) almond flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup (175 g) bittersweet chocolate chips

  3. Stop, remove the lid add the chocolate chips, scrape down the sides and bottom of the container.  Secure the lid and process for another 10 seconds. 
  4. Using 1/4 cup scoop, scoop the dough mixture onto the prepared sheet tray Chill in the refrigerator for 20 – 25 minutes.

Chef's Notes

  • Sesame and chocolate aren't often thought of as going together, but they complement each other very well in this cookie recipe. We prefer maple syrup in this recipe, but date syrup can be used; however, the consistency will be different.
  • Alternatively, spelt and oat flour can be used in place of almond flour.
