Sesame Chocolate Chip Cookies

It may sound a little weird, but trust us. This is a great combination where the sesame seeds compliment the chocolate chip cookie very well. We use whole seeds, but you can also substitute with tahini.

Chef's Notes

Sesame and chocolate aren't often thought of going together, but they go together 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.
