Things have been busy over in the KJ world. We have family coming in town next weekend because little Hunter is getting baptized in the Armenian Church. If you didn’t know, I am full Armenian. My husband is a mix of many things (none of which is Armenian), but I am grateful that he’s embraced my culture since day one. Anyhow, I’ve been in a straight tizzy this past week trying to get everything organized for his big day. I’m not one that deals with unexpected surprises in a graceful manner.
The one thing that is ALWAYS on my mind, however, is healthy baking. The reason for that is primarily because I spent so many of my teenage years depriving myself of treats, or binging on the most unhealthy treats ever (I.e., laden with corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, canola oil, you name it), and feeling like total crap. So when I recovered from my eating disorder, I wanted to have all the things I missed out on, in moderation, but made with a healthier twist, so I didn’t feel bad eating it!
Today I present you my Chocolate Fudge Tahini Cookies. They are paleo, gluten free, and YES, you can make them vegan by substituting the egg for a flax egg. Don’t know what that is? I always direct people to the Minimalist Baker flax egg tutorial because it’s simple and perfect. Maybe I’ll just do my own soon, but until then…
The other thing I want to tell you about these cookies is that they are SUPER FUDGY. So if you are only sort of into chocolate (WHO ARE YOU?), I suggest you start with my LIFE CHANGING CHOCOLATE CHIP TAHINI COOKIES. They are most definitely life changing, and aren’t as rich as these. But for everyone else in the population, let’s get right to it, shall we?
I’d love to see what you made - tag @kalejunkie
