Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies with Tahini

Vegane Chocolate-Chip-Cookies mit Tahini

Chocolate chip cookies with a nice nutty flavor, coming from tahini, that’s what you will get today! I am excited to present the third vegan recipe in January. If you would like to know why I am doing a vegan January, please check out my previous post. In my opinion, chocolate chip cookies are the best thing in the world, they are souldfood, a simple dessert, easy to prepare, they make children happy as well as adults. Regardless if filled with caramel, plain, with brown butter, I have quite a few recipes on my blog, even including a chocolate chip cookie cake, that’s how much I love this flavor. I have been wanting to try chocolate chip cookies with tahini for a while now and finally managed to give it a try. I love the vegan version, even my husband gobbled up the cookies happily and gave his stamp of approval. These vegan cookies contain tahini, the sesame paste as a replacement for the egg.

Then add all remaining ingredients except for the chocolate chips. Fold in 160 grams of chocolate chips. Chill for at least ten minutes or longer. I chilled mine for half an hour.

Whiel still warm, press remaining chocolate chips into the warm cookies and sprinkle with coarse salt if desired.
