Chewy Chocolate Chip Tahini Cookies [plant based]

Plant based chocolate chip cookies that melt in your mouth.

Cookies so good, my husband asks for them by name. Specifically because they’re made with tahini.

Adding the tahini to this recipe adds more plant based goodness to this cookie and makes it crave-able because of the added chewy texture.  I’m 100% team chewy cookie, how about you?

I will always strive to make my cookies soft and, sink your teeth in, good! Don’t hesitate to make these, they’re filled with fiber, protein, and healthy fat. There is never any guilt when you bake your own goodies and especially these because they are loaded with so much goodness.
