Posted by in Cookies, Cooking, Sweets | 1 comment

















Hello & Happy Friday!!






For many people, they have a “bucket list”.  A list filled with places they want to see and activities they want to experience. For myself I have that.. 


but I have an even bigger foodie bucket list lol


Even after 300 recipes there are still countless recipes I want to explore. One at the top of my list was, vegan Tahini cookies!


Tahini is one of those ingredients that’s imperative for hummus (duh), great for dressings, but I was intrigued about using tahini in a baked good. 


With a little insp from someone on Instagram, I put my foot down and decided to explore this concept, and hands down.. 


It’s one of my favorites now!







What’s fab about this concept is that it involves minimal ingredients, has low sugar, easy to throw together, light, buttery, packs aesthetic appeal, no white sugar or flour, so gluten free, and is non vegan approved!




If you love innovative recipes, tahini, or just aesthetically pleasing desserts, then you have to try my recipe for vegan Tahini cookies!!












Why this recipe rocks: 





Minimal ingredients

Low sugar

Non vegan approved

Perf for any season
