Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare flax egg, set aside for 4-5 minutes. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, whisk tahini, maple syrup, and flax egg together. Add almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and vanilla extract. Stir until evenly combined.
- Fold in chocolate chips. Chill in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
- Using a tablespoon, scoop cookie dough and gently roll into a loose ball with your hands. (If dough doesn't roll into a loose ball, add a bit more almond flour.)
- The dough will be sticky, wet your hands lightly with water as needed to make rolling easier. Place ball on cookie sheet. Sprinkle with sea salt.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies start to look golden on top (I found 11 minutes was perfect for my oven). Allow to cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes before removing with a spatula and placing on wire rack. Leave on wire rack until completely cool.
- Store in an airtight container.
