Vegan Gluten Free Tahini and Date Cookies


vegan gluten free tahini and date cookies

The inspiration for this recipe is a simple dish that I learned from my friend Ronit: halves of dates topped with walnuts and a drizzle of tahini. It is a very simple raw vegan dessert that is very delicious and has interesting layers of flavor and texture. Taking this dish-inspiration and trying to create a new cookie recipe wasn’t an easy journey. I had to go through several experiments in the kitchen to find out the best ingredients and quantities to achieve cookies that are both satisfying and nourishing.  Now, it’s your turn to try it and let me know what you think of it.
