Before going low FODMAP, I thought I wouldn’t have a problem eliminating sugar. I thought that I didn’t consume that much added sugar. However, as I paid more attention, I realized the daily doses added up: a teaspoon in my coffee, honey on my yogurt, a piece of candy after lunch, a scoop of ice cream after dinner. I ate sugar. And boy, did I feel it when I was detoxing from the stuff!
Now, I hardly crave sweets and when I do, I find that I am quite sensitive to added sugar. My cravings now are mostly for either the cakey mouth feel of a brownie or the crispy, chewy sensation of a cookie. Enter these perfect tahini cookies. They have the texture and taste of a soft shortbread cookie with a hint of sweetness to help you feel like you’re indulging, yet provide good fats to fill you up. They are so quick to whip up and my friends love them as much as I do!
