Vegan oatmeal, tahini and date cookies: quick recipe for a sweet snack or breakfast

Tahini, tahini or sesame paste has become our perfect substitute for butter when making vegan sweets, also ideal for those who cannot eat dairy products for any reason. British Benjamina Ebuehi’s oatmeal and date cookies promised to be the perfect sweet treat for a rainy Sunday afternoon at home, and they did not disappoint.

These cookies are a twist on the typical oatmeal and raisin cookies from Anglo-Saxon pastries, combining a crunchy exterior texture with a more tender heart, and that mix of sweet toasted flavors perfectly balanced with tahini, which although it does not contain salt as such , provides an interesting “salty” aftertaste.

Ebuehi also adds Golden syrup, the typical British golden syrup that in Spain can be found in specialized or import stores, although it is perfectly replaceable with another vegetable syrup that is not very viscous. In fact, the dough for these cookies is so simple that it is easy to customize it to taste on the fly; They will almost certainly come out rich.

Finish combining the dough by hand and take portions with a spoon to form balls with your hands. Distribute separately on the trays and flatten with a wet fork or with your fingers, leaving the thickness you prefer depending on whether you are looking for crunchier or more tender cookies.

Bake for about 14-16 minutes, until the edges begin to toast. Wait a bit out of the oven before letting the cookies cool completely on a rack.
