KaleJunkie’s Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies

Kale Junkie is one of my favorite accounts to follow. She’s honest, real, and posts delicious recipes! She actually used to be a lawyer turned recipe developer and I just find that so inspiring. It goes to show that your paid career doesn’t have to be your final stop and you CAN do what you love to do.

Anyway, her chocolate chips are AMAZING, especially right out of the oven. You would have no idea these are made with tahini. They are gluten free, grain free, and oil free. Also can be made vegan with vegan chocolate chips and a flax egg!
