These toothsome cookies are rich with tahini, almond paste and meal, fruit, and multigrain flakes. They make great snacks for the bicyclists in my life!

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets, or line with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, tahini, brown sugar, 3/4 cup of turbinado sugar, and almond paste until smooth. Mix in the egg, vanilla and orange juice. Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, almond meal, and cinnamon; stir into the batter until well blended. Mix in the cereal and sour cherries.
  3. Drop dough by heaping spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets. Sprinkle the remaining 3 tablespoons of turbinado sugar over the tops.
  4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden at the edges. Cool for a few minutes on the cookie sheets, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
  5. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Hey, just a footnote: the ingredients should read "multigrain HOT cereal"; like oatmeal, only multigrain. Enjoy, I hope!

These cookies are a good way to use up extra tahini. They are good but they didn't leave me dying for more. I increased the orange juice to 4 tbsp because the cookies were so crumbly these just fell apart.

Great recipe -- I made it with whole wheat flour and it turned out great!
