What do you do when it’s pouring rain outside and you are trying to entertain an almost 2 year old extremely busy toddler in a two bedroom apartment?
You bake cookies.
I have never seen such concentration scooping oats into a bowl and mixing them about. I guess the apple doesn’t fall very far from the tree. So that’s one good thing about a rainy weekend – you get cookies out of it.
These cookies have a unique sesame flavour from the tahini and get most of their sweetness from the mashed dates. While you could surely substitute peanut butter for the tahini, I urge you not too. The taste is just not the same. However, peanut butter should most definitely be used in these delicious cookies so have no fear peanut butter lovers.
You know, it’s probably best you make a double batch, seeing as we are now eating them at all hours of the day.
If the weather network is right (and let’s hope they aren’t), we may be in for a rainy day or two in the next week. So fair warning, stock up on cookie ingredients ASAP!
