Tahini marble cookies

The ultimate sweet treat that is healthy of course! Tahini is a favourite of mine- contains healthy fats while being delicious at the same time. 
Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup + 2 tbsp oats
  • ½ cup medjool dates, soaked in hot water 
  • 1/3 cup desiccated coconut 
  • ¼ cup raw honey 
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup tahini 
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon 
  • 1 tbsp cacao 
  • Dash water 

Method:

  • Preheat an oven to 150 degrees celsius. 
  • In a high speed blender place the oats and coconut. Pulse until a fine powder in formed. 
  • Add in all remaining ingredients except the cacao and water and blend until a dough forms. 
  • Remove the mixture and place half in a small mixing bowl.
  • Add the cacao and water to half the mixture, stirring until well combined. (Should be doughy in texture!) 
  • Place the chocolate dough in between two sheets of baking paper and roll into a rectangle. 
  • Place the other half of the mixture between another two sheets of baking paper and roll into the same shape and size. 
  • Peel off the top layer of baking paper on the two sets of dough. 
  • Place the chocolate dough directly on top of the plain dough. 
  • Fold into thirds widthways and then halve lengthways. Form into a log. 
  • Place in a freezer for 30-35 minutes or until firm. 
  • Slice into biscuits using a sharp knife. 
  • Place in the oven for about 20 minutes or until slightly more firm but still soft. 
  • Allow to cool.

    Hi, this looks like a great recipe! Being a student myself and learning about nutritional food at uni, I thought it would be best to tell you, unfortunately coconut oil has a high percentage of saturated fat (the bad type), you're not using much in this so it's totally fine in moderation, but to make this recipe healthier, you could use oils with less saturated fat like avocado or walnut oil? here is a good link with info on oils 🙂 http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-1050892/From-avocado-coconut—edible-oils-body-running-smoothly.html
