The ultimate hybrid cookie

There aren’t enough things in the world I could fill with chocolate. They’re the perfect rich basis to everything sweet, from Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls to Chocolate Chip Zucchini Bread.

Inspired by all of my favourite cookies, these Chocolate Chunk Tahini Oatmeal Cookies are a mix of everything I love in a cookie.

The sweet chocolate chunks, the salty tahini and sea salt, and the earthy texture of oats, just combine to make the perfect treat!

Ingredients in these chocolate chunk tahini oatmeal cookies

  • Almond flour: To add some volume, natural sweetness, and softness to this recipe.
  • Large flake oats: The bulk of these cookies. They can be gluten-free or not, depending on your preference!
  • Dark chocolate chunks: 70% dark chocolate is sweet and a little bitter, creating a great flavour balance.
  • Sea salt: To sprinkle on top of the cookies after they’re baked.
  • Tahini: Like an earthy nut butter, but can be substituted with any other runny nut butter!
  • Cinnamon: To compliment the oatmeal cookie component of the recipe.
  • Maple syrup: As our natural sweetener. You could also use agave nectar, or any other sticky sweetener!

These cookies can be easily made in just one bowl, and require minimal ingredients and clean up.

Oh, and did I mention these are pretty much as healthy as a cookie can get? Minimal added sugar, no refined sugar, gluten-free, vegan, and whole-grain. They’re also high in protein and fibre thanks to the oats and tahini. They might even be healthy enough to eat for breakfast. I won’t tell.
