Dark Chocolate and Tahini make a great pair in these delicious and soft gluten-free cookies. The sweet taste is one that is favored in Winter to balance the cool, dry, rough qualities of this time, so take advantage of this sweet Winter treat now. Spring is right around the corner and our body will ask us to reduce the sweet taste when it comes.

½ cup Almond Flour

⅓ cup Maple Syrup 

1 Egg

1 Tbsp melted Vanilla Dream Ghee
