Crunchy Chocolate & Tahini Cookies

Crunchy Chocolate & Tahini Cookies

These cookies are delicious, crunchy and packed with healthy fat & protein. They are fun to whip up with your little one and come together really quickly! I prefer using cacao over cocoa as cacao powder isn’t roasted and therefore the enzymes in it remain active which means it is nutrient-rich and packed with antioxidants.
