1/2 cup tahini

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 cup sugar

1 tsp salt

1 egg

1/2 cup honey

1.5 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

2 cups flour

1.5 cups of dark chocolate chunks

  1. In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, whip butter for 2-3 minutes until it is nice and fluffy. Then add tahini, brown sugar, and white sugar. Continue to whip for an additional 2 minutes.
  2. Add egg, honey, and vanilla extract and continue to whip until fully incorporated.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, sift flour and then add baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk these ingredients together for about 30 seconds and then add to the stand mixer.
