These cookies are so fast and easy. Ready in 1,2,3…4! It’s a bit like a cross between a cookie and a macaroon. We’ve made a chocolate chip version as well. The base of nut flour+coconut is so flexible, the combinations are endless! You could also sub in cocoa powder for some of the nut/seed flour. I make these cookies when I want a sweet treat in a pinch.
We fell in love with halva during our trip to Israel a few summers ago. We even had it for breakfast! Halva is like a nougat made from ground sesame seeds (tahini) and sugar syrup or honey. The most popular flavours are chocolate and vanilla of course, but I’ve seen pistachio halva and lemon halva. I encourage you to get creative with this basic recipe and give it a personal twist!
What you’ll need:
1/2 cup ground sesame seeds
1/2 cup unsweetened finely shredded coconut
4 tbsp honey
2 tbsp tahini (sesame butter)
Mix all ingredients together. Form dough into flat cookie shapes. Bake at 350F for exactly 10 minutes. Makes 12.
