Tahini Chai Breakfast Cookies

These Tahini Chai Breakfast Cookies are perfected when paired with a fresh pot of coffee and some calming morning music!

I had a craving for cookies. I mean when do I NOT have a craving for cookies? I wanted something that was nutritious and delicious and also wasn’t complicated. I think I struck gold. When I quit drinking I wanted to have a little something at the end of my day as a treat. I was obsessed with the oatmeal chocolate chip cookies from Sweets From The Earth. They came in 3’s wrapped up in a little perfect snack. I would get home from the restaurant, make a tea and eat my 3 little perfect cookies and it was perfect. It was all I needed . Fast forward a couple of years, and SEVERAL boxes of cookies later, I decided that if I wanted to indulge in a sweet treat then I would have to be the one to make it. Better for me, better for the planet and WAY better for my backside. So for the past 4 years or so I’ve made a lot of cookies and it occurred to me that I haven’t shared nearly enough of them. Let’s get you making some healthy cookies, shall we?

  • Mix all dry ingredients and set aside.
  • Once flax has gelled, add-in all other wet ingredients. add wet to dry.
  • Next add your add-ins! Mix thoroughly. My mixture was quite wet so I used an ice-cream scoop to make big rounded shapes.
  • If you’re finding it too wet, place it in the refrigerator to harden up. I baked mine for about 17 minutes. Longer than a regular cookie so check after 15.
  • Once slightly browned remove and let cool on cookie sheet on wire rack.
