Tahini Cookies

I can’t believe that months have flown by since my last recipe was posted. I honestly don’t know where the time goes.

I apologize to all my customers who keep asking for new recipe content – life just seemed to get in the way.

After a lot of thought about what I should post as my next recipe, I decided to share with you a store favourite. These cookies were adapted from a recipe shared by The Raw Walnut, who adapted it from Oh She Glows website. I changed them to make them Paleo friendly. Enjoy!
