C&H Sugar Pure, Granulated$1.99Thru 02/11Domino Pure Cane Granulated Sugar$1.99Thru 02/11
- 1 large egg white
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups rolled oats, (not quick-cooking)
- ½ cup whole-wheat pastry flour, (see Ingredient Note)
- Position racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Whisk oats, whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Beat tahini and butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer until blended into a paste. Add granulated sugar and brown sugar; continue beating until well combined—the mixture will still be a little grainy. Beat in egg, then egg white, then vanilla. Stir in the oat mixture with a wooden spoon until just moistened. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts.
- With damp hands, roll 1 tablespoon of the batter into a ball, place it on a prepared baking sheet and flatten it until squat, but don’t let the sides crack. Continue with the remaining batter, spacing the flattened balls 2 inches apart.
- Bake the cookies until golden brown, about 16 minutes, switching the pans back to front and top to bottom halfway through. Cool on the pans for 2 minutes, then transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Let the pans cool for a few minutes before baking another batch.
- Make Ahead Tip: Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days or freeze for longer storage.
- Ingredient notes: Whole-wheat pastry flour, lower in protein than regular whole-wheat flour, has less gluten-forming potential, making it a better choice for tender baked goods. You can find it in the natural-foods section of large supermarkets and natural-foods stores. Store in the freezer.
- Tahini is a paste made from ground sesame seeds. Look for it in natural-foods stores and some supermarkets.
