I made these cookies for my bestie Venetia’s birthday on Friday and as somebody that makes cookies so much, they had been very properly obtained and doubtlessly my finest but. I often make tahini cookies with floor almonds however when coming to make these late on Thursday evening I found I didn’t have any so I improvised and used oats and coconut. The coconut provides such a pleasant texture and the oats truly make them much less heavy than after I use almonds. I’d been to an occasion that evening too and had a bar of Lindt sea salt darkish chocolate from it in my bag so determined to interrupt up a few of that and blend it in too and due to this fact ended up with my finest cookies but. The hot button is to not over bake them and to permit them to fully cool earlier than dealing with them. It’s exhausting to withstand however price it! We loved them with booja booja ice cream and it was heaven.
120g gluten free porridge oats
100g desiccated coconut
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp flaked sea salt
half a vanilla bean pod (you could possibly additionally use 1 tsp vanilla extract)
50g sea salt darkish chocolate (I take advantage of Lindt)
Preheat oven to 170C fan. Line two baking trays with baking parchment paper.
In a big mixing bowl, combine collectively the gluten oats, desiccated coconut, baking powder and sea salt till properly mixed.
In a small saucepan warmth the tahini and honey till they’re properly mixed and beginning to thicken. Lower the vanilla bean pod in half size methods after which gently scrap out the black vanilla beans with a spoon and stir into the tahini and honey combination.
Add the tahini combination to the oat combination and mix, permit it to chill barely then break up the chocolate into small squares and gently combine in.
Create one large doughy ball in your fingers and let it sit for 10 minutes.
Then create little balls with the combination and place them on the baking trays. It’ll make between 10-16 relying on how large you make them.
Press every ball down with the again on a fork to flatten into cookie shapes, you might must press the edges collectively once more if they’re fairly crumbly however that’s how they need to be.
Bake for eight minutes, keep watch over them, you simply need them to be barely browned and the chocolate can be gooey and melting.
Take away from the oven and allow them to cool fully on a wire rack on the baking paper. Don’t transfer or contact them along with your fingers as they are going to be very delicate.
As soon as they’re cooled, they are going to be chewy and scrumptious! Take pleasure in!
