Turmeric & Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies bore me. Plain old chocolate chip cookies? Everyone and their mother has a recipe for those. So let’s just make them just a BIT different… 

Tahini and turmeric? Ok I know it sounds weird. But trust. They are really fun. 

          

THEY TURN RED INSIDE! Yea… I know. Brain implosion. How cool is that… I can’t get over it.

These cookies have a slightly nutty flavour but don’t overwhelm you with tahini. And the turmeric – well it just makes them this really cool golden colour. And of course make the super awesme red colour inside.

Science is cool.
