You can make it with tahini to replace both the coconut oil and almond butter, and use 1/4 cup (60ml) in total. The flavor is a little stronger but still delicious. The dough might be a little dry, so you can add 1-2 tablespoons of water or even better Arabic coffee. If you go with the tahini I recommend replacing the cinnamon with cardamom, and instead of rolling the dough in coconut sugar before baking, leaving that step out, and drizzle the cookies after baking with more tahini and date molasses as pictured below.

You can certainly leave out the cinnamon in the recipe if you prefer, and increase the vanilla to 1 teaspoon.
To make the flax egg, mix 1 tablespoon of flax meal (or ground chia seeds) with 2 1/2 tablespoons of water, set aside to thicken then use in the recipe.
If you don’t have any coconut sugar available you can use whole cane sugar or date sugar. If you use date sugar the result will most likely be less sweet.
The cookie dough needs time to firm up in the fridge, about 30 minutes. The dough can also be stored for 48 hours in the fridge. The cookies are best consumed warm while the chocolate in the middle is still melted. So bake the amount you plan to consume and save the rest for the coming days.

Instructions

  • 1. In a medium bowl, mix together the oil, almond butter and coconut sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Add the flax egg, molasses and vanilla. Stir to combine and set aside.
  • 2. In another medium bowl mix together the flour with the cacao powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. I like to sift the cacao powder to make sure there are no clumps.
  • 3. Add the liquid mixture to the dry and fold together until no dry mixture remains. Cover and place the bowl in the fridge for 30 minutes, or up to 48 hours.
  • 4. Fifteen minutes before you would like to bake the cookies, pre-heat the oven to 350F or 160C. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  • 5. Take the cookie dough out of the fridge. In a small bowl mix together the coating ingredients and have the chocolate discs or chunks ready.
  • 6. Using a small ice cream scoop or 1 tablespoon measuring spoon, scoop out a rounded tablespoon of dough, inserting the dark chocolate into the centre and rolling the dough around it. Then roll in the coating mixer and place on the baking sheet, spacing the cookies about 1 inch apart. Continue with the rest of the mixture, or the amount you plan on baking for that day.
  • 7. Bake for 7-9 minutes. The cookies might crack slightly. They will look dry but still soft on the side. Let cool for a few minutes and enjoy warm.

Notes

The cookie dough needs time to firm up in the fridge, about 30 minutes. The dough can also be stored for 48 hours in the fridge. The cookies are best consumed warm while the chocolate in the middle is still melted.
