If you think tahini is only for hummus and salad dressings, think again. The nutty, rich flavor of sesame paste shines in baked goods like these cookies featuring chewy oats and a hint of vanilla and cinnamon. For gluten-free treats, always make sure to double check the label of your oats.

Ingredients

Cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Packed light brown sugar

cup(s)

Tahini

cup(s)

Water

2 tbsp(s), cold

Egg(s)

1 large egg(s)

Ground cinnamon

1 tsp(s)

Vanilla extract

½ tsp(s)

Kosher salt

½ tsp(s)

Old-fashioned rolled oats

1¼ cup(s), gluten-free

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, beat together light brown sugar, tahini, water, and egg until smooth; 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in cinnamon, vanilla, and salt. Fold in oats until completely combined.
  2. Using mini cookie scoop or a measuring tablespoon, scoop cookie dough into 24 balls and arrange on prepared pans, spacing at least 2 inches apart.
  3. Using a spatula, lightly coated with cooking spray, press down on each ball of dough slightly to flatten into a 2” disc. Bake cookies until the edges are just beginning to brown, 8 to 9 minutes. They’ll continue to set at room temperature as they cool.
  4. Cool for 10 minutes on the cookie sheets before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. Per serving: 1 cookie
