Hello!

Ever since I was a young child baking has been passion of mine. Whether you are alone, chilling with friends or even just really stressed out and needing a way to relax, baking for me has always been a place for me to go. Baked goods are not just delicious but are also extremely fun to make and when you gift someone something your created with your very own two hands, it makes it that much more special. I have never been one for sports, dance or any of those co-curriculars because I am not all that coordinated, so baking is the way I love to pass the time and is a skill I have been working on for a great number years now. This blog is a place where my love of baking and photography meet hand in hand and is also a place filled with my all time favourite recipes. So join me on my baking journey, it does not matter who you are and why you want to learn, just dive in or "dig in" and lets make some SCRUMPTIOUS food!

Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am never not in the mood to make some chocolate chip cookies! They are the ultimate comfort food but having them ALL the time isn't the best for you. These cookies are made with such pure and simple ingredients that you can even eat them for breakfast! This amazing gluten-free and dairy-free (if you use dairy free chocolate chips) snack is SCRUMPTIOUS!

Never before Have I heard of using Tahini in baking before, so I decided to try it out! Tahini is essentially just ground up sesame seeds and tastes amazing when paired with the cinnamon in the cookie! Yes, I know these cookies may seem super weird but just trust me and try to bake them and you will be obsessed! These are just as good as the original chocolate chip cookies but are guilt free! I hope you enjoy these cookies and gain a new obsession just like I did when first making these!

Ingredients:

  • 6 tablespoons of tahini paste
  • 1/2 a cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips (or chopped walnuts )
  • 1 Tablespoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup of oats
  • 1/2 a cup of maple  syrup
  • 1/2 a teaspoon of sea salt

  6. ENJOY!
