Pumpkin Spice Tahini Cookies Recipe – Have some leftover tahini lingering in your kitchen that you don’t know what to do with? Use it to make these cookies.
Guess What Y’all?!?!
I forgot to tell you that your boy Frank Ocean finally came out with an album (are they still called that?), but yes Frank Ocean released the Blonde album a few weeks ago. I know that you read that last sentence and thought okay…but read it again in your screaming fan girl voice and that would accurately capture the way that I feel.
At first it began as a visual album, to which I strategically blocked out a pocket of time (it was that serious) to sit down and watch it and I will tell you that I was a little bit disappointed. The music was deep…perhaps a little too deep for me. I turned it off and wasn’t exactly sure about the journey that Frank was trying to take me on, so when I heard that the Blonde album was released and available for download, I took my time to get around to listening to it until this past week. At first listen I was not impressed. I wasn’t really feeling it. I decided not to let that stop me because I felt the same way about Rihanna’s Anti album and now that is one of my favorites and is on heavy rotation. Knowing this I gave it another listen and I LOVE IT!! I truly cannot stop listening to it. It is so good in fact that I think we should all just have some cookies…some pumpkin spice tahini cookies that is 😉

- ¼ cup tahini

- 2 teaspoons pumpkin spice
- ¾ cup quick cooking oats
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup chocolate chips

In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the tahini, almond butter, maple syrup, and pumpkin spice until creamy and combined. Pour in the oats and stir until combined. Lastly fold in the chocolate chips and pinch of salt.
Scoop the cookies into the palm of your hand and form into the shape of a cookie. Place each cookie onto the prepared baking sheet. Place into the oven and bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the cookies have lightly browned. Allow the cookies to cool for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
