As of recently, I’ve been wanting to play around with oat flour a little more. Since it has a tad more protein and higher fiber than the normal gluten free flour I use, I thought it would be a fun flour to utilize whenever I’m trying to pack a little protein and fiber into whatever recipe I’m making! After not eating oats for almost 10 years, I now eat protein oats for a post workout breakfast usually 3-4x/week and love the energy I have paired with how full it keeps me. You can get my 51g protein oats breakfast recipe on my new fitness app, along with a handful of other high protein meals and snacks, with new recipes being added weekly!

But enough oat flour, let’s just talk about the cookies. I LOVE tahini. Well…I mean…not just by itself. That’s just gross. But mixed into things like dressings, cookies, dips, and other baked goods…now that’s where I love tahini. If you’re new to tahini, it’s a sesame seed paste/butter. Think about almond butter, but swap it out for sesame seeds. It has a super distinctive flavor that’s a tad bitter, but that taste pairs perfectly with sugar or salt or herbs or anything acidic. I’ve used tahini to make granola, as a yogurt dressing on top of squash, and mixed in a batter to make my tahini blondies. It completely changes the taste and makes dishes more interesting. With these cookies made from tahini and oat flour, you have a cookie that is crispy on the outside, but soft on the inside. It’s a good mouth feel. Ya feel?

I made these cookies yesterday for the Chiefs vs whoever else they were playing game. Football cannot end soon enough. After 34 years of life, I still dislike it. It’s so time consuming and slow. Yesterday Brian watched 2 games back to back so we had football on for OVER 8 HOURS. That’s disgusting. Only plus side is that Brian’s family (who are Chiefs fans) come over and they play with Avery while I cook. So yesterday I made these cookies, I marinated Nobu’s miso black cod which will marinate for the next 3 days, blended up anchovy caper butter for salmon this week, I cooked miso butter onions, roasted buttermilk chicken thighs, and pressure cooked instant pot rice. It’s safe to say that yesterday was a productive cooking day. I’ve been writing up a weekly menu every Saturday so I know exactly what I’ll need in the fridge AND to ensure I’m getting in multiple veggies and different types of protein throughout the week! It’s been so fun! Would you be interested in me sharing that weekly menu along with links to the different recipes I’ll be using?! Let me know!! I think it would be so fun to start sharing that!

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Whisk together oat flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Add in tahini and egg, and fold until mixture becomes a dough. Then fold in chocolate chips.
  3. Cover and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  4. Use a cookie scoop to form 12 round balls and place on a baking sheet evenly throughout. Bake for 12 minutes. When you remove the cookies from the oven, immediately sprinkle flake salt on top. And if you want to get a perfectly round cookie, turn a large glass upside down to cover the cookie then lightly swirl around the glass to make the cookie perfectly round! Let cookies cool for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

    Yes! I struggle with meal-planning, so I would love to see some templates.

  2. Jennifer says:

    Um those looks insanely good! Can’t wait to try them.

  3. P & B says:

    Made these for my fiancé who is obsessed with tahini. I made my own oat flour in the blender and I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup. They’re delicious! Definitely making again!

  4. Julie says:

    Yes, Juli, I would love to see your weekly menu plans! I think so many of us struggle with this. So nice of you to consider sharing. Love your blog!

  5. Jackie says:

    Just made these and followed the recipe exactly except I made my own oat flour and they were way too dry and crumbly. Not sure if I should have reduced the sugar as the other commenter did but these didn’t work out for me. Bummer.

  6. Ashley says:

    Also, I would SO LOVE to see your weekly menu! <3

    Hi Juli, I looked over the brands you used for this recipe and noticed Bob’s Red Mill oat flour. So many oat products contain glyphosate (Roundup) which is toxic and a very harmful cancer causing pesticide. I too make my own oat flour by using a glyphosate free brand. Please keep your family healthy and use another brand. 😊

    I would love a weekly menu! I am stuck in a rut and would love some inspiration.

  9. Tatiana says:

    Yes, I would like your meal plan too!

  10. Emily says:

    Please please pleaseeeeee do a weekly menu. Casey does one for the Fed and Fit emails and it is one of my favorite things. If I could have both of yours to pull from for meal planning that would be AMAZING!
