Vegan Tahini Cookies with Choc Chips, Sea Salt & Cardamom

tahini cookies with choc chips, cardamom and sea salt

These Tahini Cookies with Chocolate Chips, Cardamom and Sea Salt flakes have been a real favourite for the past weeks. I’ve baked them a couple times already, and they’re a true hit. Many people have been asking for the recipe, so I’m finally sharing it!

Simple Tahini Cookies are already great, but I’ve decided to spice up things a little by adding some cardamom (my favourite spice), chocolate for even more decadence and sea salt flakes. Sea Salt is totally optional but it’s a dream combo with choc chips!

These would make the perfect Sunday bake, I like inviting friends over for a cup of tea and serve these for a real treat. I also plan on bringing them to work for all my colleagues, as we enter the festivities I really feel like cooking and sharing!

If you do make this recipe, don’t forget to tag me on Instagram as @berlinandcoconuts, I’d love to see your recreations!
