SUBSTITUTE FOR TAHINI IN COOKIES

I recommend you using tahini to make this Tahini Chocolate Stuffed Cookies recipe. However, if for any reason you will not be using tahini, you can substitute with any other smooth nut butter (peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter). But keep in mind it will slightly affect the final flavor.

Notes

*If you don't have a blender, you can still make this recipe by mixing the dry ingredients with a whisk (or fork). The mixture won't be as smooth as the oats won't be reduced into flour, but the taste should remain the same. You can also get oat flour from a store to get the same results without a blender. If you are thinking of investing in a blender that is not too expensive, this Nutribullet blender is, from my experience, one of the best small blenders that you can get for an affordable price.
** If you are gluten intolerant, sensitive or allergic, make sure to use gluten-free oat flour as normal oats can contain traces of gluten.
***I have tested this recipe with coconut milk and rice milk, which both worked perfectly. However, any other plant-milk can be used to make this recipe.
