Also, it's important to mention that this cookie recipe is low carb, gluten free, vegan and freaking delicious! Just the perfect snack or dessert, contains plenty of protein and without all the sugar since we are using a keto friendly plant based protein and cream cheese!



About this Tahini Apple Cinnamon Cookie Pie:

I kept it simple and very convenient. I used a plant-based friendlythe cream cheese, apples and my favorite plant based protein powder for the base. The inspiration from this recipe was nothing but the season, I'm feeling all the fall vibes now!


Apple cinnamon recipes are good enough on its own... add some tahini and you get some magic! A delicious cookie recipe using sprouted apple cinnamon oats, some of low carb seed based granola that has coconut, chocolate and pumpkin seeds.



I also added some plant based protein in vanilla flavor it add some volume, flavor and nutrient density, in this recipe it didn't blend completely with the rest of the ingredients so there were some parts that really reminded me of the cookies!


The one the I typically use is from Nuzest, made with simple ingredients plus it's also low carb. You can use the discount code PURELYHL for discount!


The combination of the apple and vanilla protein powder is just a little extra touch that makes a difference on the texture too! Since it's a pea protein base it tends to absorb a little bit more of liquid making the mixture denser and thicker.


Plus the flavor of tahini along with the apple cinnamon oat base is just a DREAM! It's just a dream fall combination.


The perfect afternoon snack or dessert no matter the season! I'm a firm believer that having a good protein snack is always a good idea, and healthy cookies are just the perfect recipe to have on hand and ready to prepare no matter how much time you've got.



Overall, these are the ingredients needed for this Tahini Apple Cinnamon Cookie Pie:

  • Nuzest Plant-Based Protein - Vanilla

  • Apple Cinnamon Sprouted Oats

  • Granulated monk fruit

  • Tahini

  • Apples

  • Seed Based Granola

  • Plant-Based Cream Cheese


You can see that the ingredients are pretty basic, and the method is the easiest thing to do! Since peo protein tends to absorb more water I kept the portion to 1/2 cup, it also adds thickness and volume to the base of the cookies.


For the toppings I decided to use some seeds and nuts, specially pumpkin seeds since it add a little more of the fall vibes we want and love... plus some zinc!



To keep everything low carb I used my favorite sweetener that replace sugar 1:1, this is the granulated monk fruit from Lakanto, this is a great keto friendly and diabetic option for all my sweet pies out there.
