3. Tahini Chocolate-Chip Cookie Recipe
Tahini is a fantastic addition to baked recipes, and give these chocolate chip cookies the most wonderful nutty flavour and creamy texture. The sea salt and rich dark chocolate chunks also render these cookies impossibly moreish. They are flour-free. dairy-free, and derive their sweetness from maple syrup. Curl up with a mug of tea on a rainy, or for that matter, any type of day, and indulge!
Another excuse to utilize the beautiful flavour and texture of tahini paste are with these mouth-watering truffles. They have no added sugar, and are vegan and gluten free as well. These treats are perfect for a special occasion, I love to serve these at dinner parties at the end of the meal with some mint tea or cups of coffee.
Greek yogurt is very low in fat compared to cream, and has endless health benefits such as building immunity with its probiotics and mineral profile. The creaminess of the yogurt combined with the tang of the raspberry makes for a scrumptious and refreshing treat on a hot summer’s day. Mmm…scrummy!
