Oaty Kinako & Sesame Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Back in 20016 I posted a recipe for Oaty Pecan cookies.  This is another cookie recipe inspired by that one with instead of nuts I added kinako and white sesame paste to give the cookies flavour.

In one bowl add

1/2 cup of almond flour

1/3 cup of Kinako ( soy bean flour )

1 cup of oats ( I use raw sprouted gluten-free oats )

1/2 teaspoon baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

a pinch of salt

1/2 cup of coconut palm sugar

In another bowl add

1 flax egg ( one tablespoon of flax meal with x3 tablespoon of water mixed and allow to set in the fridge )

1 tablespoon of maple syrup

1/4 cup of coconut oil / melted coconut butter

1 tablespoon of sesame paste or light tahini

( you will also need 1/2 bar of chocolate ) I used a raw Ombar and chopped it into chunks.

When you flax meal is set add this to your wet ingredients and mix then add this to your dry to form a dough. Add your chopped chocolate chunks. It takes a little time to work everything together.
take spoonfuls of dough and roll into a ball and place them on parchment paper on a baking sheet then flatten them out. Depending on how big you want your cookies I made 8 in total .

Place in a moderate oven around 150c for 15 – 20 mins.
Remove and allow to cool.

They are lovely and crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside.

The sesame and kinako gives the cookies a lovely nutty flavour.
