I didn’t realize until looking at the calendar that Valentine’s Day is exactly one month away, so cue all things heart and love themed, including today’s sweet recipe!
I’m kicking off the month of my V-day posts with a spin on the flourless peanut butter cookies I shared a few months back. I found the original recipe on the Food Network and incorporated a new ingredient that seems to be all the rage right now.
Yep, apparently tahini’s not just used for hummus anymore!
Peanut Butter Tahini Heart Cookies
It appears from the number of posts I’ve seen, that tahini is the hot new ingredient, used by bakers and cooks alike! Made from hulled sesame seeds, this ground creamy spread has a similar consistency to nut butters, with a mild sesame flavor, and tastes delicious in sweet and savory recipes.
A quick search on the web and you’ll see tahini in everything from cookies, to bars, dressings, smoothies and even hot chocolate!
Since it’s already got a nutty flavor, the tahini is the perfect addition to these already tasty roll out peanut butter heart cookies. That drizzle of dark chocolate and sprinkle of sesame seeds on top, is certainly enough to make your heart skip a beat!
If you aren’t quite yet convinced, these peanut butter tahini hearts are gluten, dairy and also refined sugar-free! Just a few more reasons you’ll fall in love at first bite!
Serve these cookies at upcoming Valentine’s and Galentine’s Day parties. Or wrap them up and gift to the dessert lovers in your life!
Since they’re incredibly quick and easy to make, you can even whip up two batches so there’s more to go around!
Have a lovely week ahead!
