Tahini Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies are delicious and nutrient dense. Tahini is made from sesame seeds and is quite nutrient dense. Just one tablespoon of tahini has 89 calories, 3 grams of protein and 1.4 grams of dietary fiber. In one small serving, men get 4 percent of their recommended daily intake of fiber and 5 percent of daily protein, while women gain 6 percent of their recommended daily intake of fiber and protein. Tahini provides 6 percent of the recommended daily intake of bone-building calcium and 2 to 5 percent of energy-providing B vitamins.
