Back to Basics-Milk and Cookies

I have an unyielding penchant for routines, and an unrelenting sweet tooth. Which has me reaching out for a mug of something warm and a bite of something sweet, every single night. I might have mentioned this before, on numerous occasions, but I try to be healthy. 
So when I stumbled on this recipe for a mere  5 ingredient tahini chocolate chip cookies, that were grain free and had no refined sugars I was sold. All you need is a bowl, a wooden spoon, five ingredients, 5 mins and a little oven waiting time. Around twenty minutes of prep and baking time later, you will be met with the chewiest , gooiest and probably healthiest cookie in the world. Ok, so I might be exaggerating a tiny bit, but they are that good. And that easy. What are you waiting for.. get to it:
Recipe makes somewhere between 6-10 cookies depending on how large or small you scoop out the dough:
  • 3/4 cups lightly packed coconut sugar
  • 1eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup well mixed tahini 
  • 1/2 semi sweet cup chocolate chips

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. In a bowl mix and whisk the egg and coconut sugar 
  3. Add the tahini, vanilla and salt- and whisk until the dough is smooth.
  4. Add the chocolate chips and stir until the chocolate chips are evenly incorporated.
  5. Stick the bowl (covered) in the freezer for 15 minutes 
  6. Scoop out one table spoon of the dough per cookie, and make sure to leave an inch and a half or so of space between each cookie. 
  7. Bake until the edges start to golden, but the center is still a little underdone. This should take between 10-15 mins depending on your oven. My telltale sign is when you get the first whiff of tahini.
  8. Allow to cool, while you prep your milk or tea of choice. 
  9. Sit back, dip and enjoy. 
So thats my something sweet, as for the something warm. Lately I have been loving almond milk with a dash of vanilla, cinnamon, cardamon and ashwaganda. But more on that next time.
