This tahini oatmeal cookies recipe results in chewy cookies layered with browned butter and chocolate chunks perfect to add to a lunch box or bring along on a hike.


130 grams / 4.58 ounces browned butter, unsalted and room temperature
200 grams / 1 cup brown sugar
1 egg, room temperature
160 grams / 2/3 cup tahini
119 grams / 1 1/3 cups rolled oats
120 grams / 3/4 cup plain flour
4 grams / 1 teaspoon baking powder
3 grams / 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

  3. Add the egg and continue to beat until well combined, beating for a further minute.
  4. Pour in the tahini and beat until combined.
  5. Add the rolled oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, beat on low until just combined.
  6. Toss in 2/3’s of the chocolate chunks and stir through.
  7. Scoop a piece of dough and roll the the top of your cookie dough into the remaining 1/3 of chocolate chunks, flattening slightly as you place it on the tray.
  8. Continue scooping and rolling into the chocolate pieces, pressing lightly when you place onto the tray, ensuring there is 1 1/2 inches between each cookie.
  9. Place in the oven and bake for 14 minutes until browned on the edges and golden on top.
