It’s time to take tahini beyond hummus. The nutty flavor of sesame paste shines in baked goods like these chewy cookies featuring oats and cinnamon. For gluten-free treats, always double-check the label on your oats. Tahini is a rich nut-free paste that’s made from ground sesame seeds and is versa­tile enough for sweet or savory dishes. Store it in the fridge for up to a year and be sure to stir until well combined before using.

Ingredients

Cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Packed light brown sugar

cup(s)

Tahini

cup(s)

Water

2 Tbsp, cold

Egg(s)

1 item(s), large

Ground cinnamon

1 tsp

Vanilla extract

½ tsp

Kosher salt

½ tsp

Old-fashioned rolled oats

1¼ cup(s), gluten-free

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Using an electric mixer, in a medium bowl, beat the sugar, tahini, cold water, and egg until smooth, 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in the cinnamon, vanilla, and salt. Using a spatula, fold in the oats.
  3. Using a mini cookie scoop or tablespoon, scoop the dough into 24 balls and arrange on the prepared pans, spacing the balls 2 inches apart. Lightly coat a mini offset spatula with cooking spray and press down on each ball to flatten it into a 2-inch disk.
  4. Bake the cookies until the edges are just beginning to brown, 8 to 9 minutes. (The cookies will continue to set as they cool.) Let cool for 10 minutes on the cookie sheets. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. Serving size: 1 cookie
