Honey Tahini Cashew Cookies
Ingredients Makes 18
1 ½ cups cashew meal*
2/3 cup white sesame seeds
1/3 cup unhulled white tahini
¼ cup raw honey
1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or vanilla powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon cinnamon, ground
¼ teaspoon sea salt
Preheat oven to 175 0 C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
In a large mixing bowl place cashew meal, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. In a small
mixing bowl combine tahini, raw honey, vanilla extract and coconut oil. Add the wet ingredients to the dry mix and use your hands to combine the dough. It should be slightly tacky to touch. Roll into balls of 2cm diameter.
Place the sesame seeds into a shallow dish. Roll balls in sesame seeds then place onto baking tray. Press down to 0.5 cm thickness.
Bake for 10 minutes. If you would like even crispier cookies flip and bake for a further 5 minutes. Allow to cool and store in an airtight container.
* To make cashew meal, simply blend raw cashews in a high-powered blender until it resembles course flour.
