100g butter, room temperature

100g sugar

40g Tahini

150g self-raising flour

½tsp vanilla extract

1tbsp Date Molasses (honey and golden syrup work as substitues)

60g of any type of chocolate you have at home


  1. Heat the oven to 160C/Fan 140C/Gas Mark 3. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together with an electric hand whisk until light and fluffy.
  2. Slowly add the Tahini, flour, vanilla extract and Date Molasses, whisking on a low speed to combine.
  3. Add the chocolate chips or chunks into the mixture, which is often easier to mix in with a wooden spoon than the whisk.
  4. Line two baking trays with baking parchment. Using an ice-cream scoop, or your clean hands, roll the cookie dough into 12 balls. Place on the baking trays, and flatten slightly with your hand or the back of a spoon.
  5. Bake in the oven for 12 minutes, or until lightly golden. Remove from the oven and allow to cool, best served warm.
