Recipe– Sesame Coconut Cookies

We have been working on a bunch of cooking projects lately––  writing, developing recipes, testing and editing.  This recipe is a new favorite:

Sesame Coconut Cookies 

16 cookies, Prep Time: 5 minutes, Total Time: 20 minutes

1 cup whole wheat flour, 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, 1/2 cup coconut flakes, 1/4 cup sesame seeds, 1/4 teaspoon baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon baking soda, 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, 2 tablespoon tahini, dash salt

  1. Combine the flour, sugar, coconut, sesame seeds, baking powder and baking soda.  Mix in the oil, tahini, salt and 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon water.  Combine thoroughly using your fingers.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.  Divide the cookie batter into 16 parts.  Wet your hands and roll each portion into a ball.  Place cookies on the parchment paper and gently flatten with the palm of your hand.
  3. Bake until cookies just start to turn golden brown, about 12 minutes.
  4. Enjoy warm or room temperature.sesamecookie
