I just woke up the other day and had a craving for chocolate chip cookies. While I have many chocolate chip cookie recipes that I love, such as my Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies, Rye Chocolate Chip Cookies, Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies and so many more, I just wanted to make something new – duh!
So, I decided to make sesame oil chocolate chip cookies. When I told Delaney I was going to put toasted sesame oil into a chocolate chip cookie, he looked at me weird. And not in a good way, haha! He was not really on board with the idea, but I made them anyway.
But, when I was done making them, he ate one and liked it! If you like sesame, then you will love this recipe for Sesame Chocolate Chip Cookies. These simple sesame oil chocolate chip cookies use toasted sesame oil along with light brown sugar, vanilla extract, and Kamut flour to give these cookies a really unique flavor!
I use semi sweet chocolate chips in these sesame oil chocolate chip cookies, and I add sesame seeds on top for extra flavor. After the cookie dough is rolled into balls, I just sprinkle the tops with sesame seeds. You can also add in extra chocolate chips on top at this time if you want that look of the chocolate chips right on top.
How do you store these sesame oil chocolate chip cookies?
These are soft and chewy cookies, so they are best stored in an airtight container. You can also freeze them if you are not going to eat them all right away. You can store in the freezer for up to 1 month.
What if I don’t have Kamut flour?
If you don’t have Kamut flour, I highly recommend you get some! This is a specialty flour, but it gives baked goods a really unique and interesting flavor, one that can’t be replicated with another type of flour. If you really don’t want to buy some, you can use all purpose flour in place of it. The all purpose flour will work the same in the recipe, however, the flavor will be altered.
Can I use mini chocolate chips instead of regular chocolate chips?
Yes, if you prefer mini chocolate chips you can use those instead of regular chocolate chips! I love mini chocolate chips and they would also be delicious in this cookie recipe.
Can I add sesame seeds into the cookie dough?
Yes, of course! You can add sesame seeds into the cookie dough if you want more. I’d start with 28 grams and go from there.
Ingredients I used to make these sesame oil chocolate chip cookies
Organic Large Eggs
Why use organic ingredients in this recipe? You all know I’m a huge organic advocate, and I bet you may be thinking sometimes, Why would I even bother to use organic ingredients in something that is so sweet and indulgent? But, that is the exact reason why you should use organic ingredients! Sweet things need to have flavor in order to be good, otherwise they are just sweet and they don’t taste like much else. Organic ingredients are more pure than conventional ones, therefore they actually have more flavor than the non organic options. Say it with me, organic means more flavor! And not just more flavor but a more true and pure flavor. And organic ingredients are much healthier for you to eat in general as they do not contain GMOs or anything artificial. Plus, you are being environmentally friendly when you choose organic ingredients!
So, I highly recommend that you buy the best organic ingredients for this recipe! You can also shop my Amazon Storefront for all my favorite organic ingredients here. Tip – hover over each ingredient to see the name. And if you want to learn more about organic foods and the difference, read my post here on Food Labels and What They Mean.
