Place the first 7 ingredients together in a stand mixer and blend on high until well combined.
Add the next 5 dry ingredients to the mixer and blend until combined.

- I've made these cookies without the tahini and instead used an additional ½ cup of the sesame flour. With that change you would be able to get 30 total cookies instead. My hubby stated they were more cake like and loved them. I prefer the addition of the tahini and feel it creates more of that chewy bite.
- If you don't have a nut allergy in the family feel free to use almond flour in place of sesame and a nut butter of choice in place of the tahini.
- I've also made these without any cream cheese and again felt while they were good cookies, they were more cake like. The cream cheese adds more fat and more of that texture. You could replace with a dairy free cream cheese if needed or possibly try coconut cream in its place.
- UPDATE: Dec 2018 I added 1 teaspoon of baking soda and these expanded nicely and are more chewy. If you like a dense more like a chips ahoy cookie don't added the baking soda. If you prefer a chewier cookie, add 1 teaspoon of baking soda when you add the baking powder. Please note that using baking soda with sunflower seed butter or tahini will cause a chemical reaction with the natural chlorophyl from the sunflowers and sesame will turn the inside of the cookies green.
