For the little monsters, I like to try out super healthy recipes, because let’s face it… who wants to feed children cups of sugar? Well I know I don’t!
We have got today, a gluten free, vegan and refined sugar free recipe! What? What is left of good? How can I be lots of butter and not give you an indulgent recipe? Well.. there’s always a balance!
Gluten free tahini and chocolate cookies
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup tahini
- 1 cup walnuts (ground finely)
- 1 + 1/4 cup gluten free flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 cup cacao powder
Firstly, in a bowl, whisk up maple syrup and tahini. When fully combined add in the walnut and whisk the mixture well.
In a separate bowl, combine sifted flour, cacao powder and the baking soda. Add it to the tahini mixture in three batches. The mixture will be thick and sticky so it’s best to use your hands. Make sure you don’t overmix it otherwise the cookies will be hard.
Weigh the dough and divide it into 12 even pieces. Roll each piece into a ball and press the ball down with a rolling pin, or an empty bottle of wine.
Put the cookies into the fridge for about 40 min. When about 30 min in, pre-heat the oven to 175C.
Bake in a hot oven for about 10-12 mins. Once they are ready, remove from the over and transfer to a cooling rack. Let the cookies cool down before eating!
I hope you enjoy this little bit of healthy heaven and please do let me know your opinion!
