Well, I don't have a lot to say about the Focus on Life prompt this week- foodie. I started this journey with the blackberries in my back yard, made my favorite tahini- oat cookies, took a little unplanned walk by a food pantry, found a foodie mural and even had a bit of pizza and pepperoncini.Want to see more fun food?

I don't have a real recipe for those cookies, but here's the list of ingredients. These cookies really remind me of halva. We used to make something very similar when I worked at a natural foods bakery. I always made these and ruggelah. You could tell who the baker of the day was by looking to see what was available! None of this- tahini-oat cookies on Mondays business, it was pretty well catch as catch can! One day I will try these with 1/2 tahini and 1/2 almond butter. I can practically taste them already!
Here's the list of ingredients for about 12-15 cookies:
1/3 cup tahini
1/2 cup honey,
1 t. salt,
1/2 cup finely chopped nuts or sunflower seeds
1 1/3 cups oats
Mix up the wet stuff, add the dry stuff.
Add an extra T. or so of tahini if it seems too dry.
Put on greased baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees (or a little less) until the bottom gets a little bit brown
( I didn't pay attention to how long- 12-18 minutes????)
Let cool. Put in the freezer for 5 minutes if they're stuck to the pan and they should come right off. Eat!
