Tahini-Orange-Date Crumble Cookies

LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :
A tahini-based cookie sounded like the perfect way to use some of that sweet, crunchy (sesame-seeded) mixture. I veganized the cookie recipe, swapped white flour for whole wheat, added almond flour and reduced the amount of sugar and fat – and I added a good handful of date crumble. These cookies have the most tender crumb and they bake up beautifully. The aroma when they bake – out of sight.

Tahini-Orange-Date Crumble Cookies

This Recipe is :

Vegan

Serves

16 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/4 cup almond meal (a good way to use the almond pulp from making almond milk; just make sure it’s dry and finely ground)
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. powdered stevia
  • 1/4 cup vegan butter
  • 1/4 cup maple sugar (or omit stevia and use 1/2 cup sugar)
  • 1/2 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 4 oz. prune puree
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. orange extract
  • 1 1/4 cups Date, Cherry, Walnut & Ginger Crumble
  • Demerara sugar for sprinkling

Preparation

  1. In a small bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, salt and stevia.
  2. By hand or in a stand mixer, cream the butter and maple sugar.  Add the maple syrup, prune puree and extracts.  Process until well-mixed.  Carefully add the flour mixture and just as the dough is coming together, pour in the crumble.  Process just enough so that the crumble is thoroughly incorporated.  The mixture should be covered and chilled for several hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 350F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.   Scoop up generous tablespoon-sized balls of dough and roll them quickly.  When all of the balls have been formed, wet the bottom of a glass and gently press down the cookies.  Sprinkle with Demerara sugar.
  4. Bake for about 15 minutes, switching pans halfway through.  Allow to cool for a few minutes on the pans, then transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.

I was into my 30s before I began running and working out, but I was still missing something: diet.  The animal products I was consuming were undoing the benefits of all of that physical activity.  Today my body runs on a plant-based, low-fat, low sugar diet that keeps me healthy and strong. I’m sharing – via An Unrefined Vegan - what I've learned by offering simple, delicious and nutritious recipes that nurture body, soul and conscience.
