Sesame seeds (and thus, these cookies) are high in protein, and especially rich in some amino acids not easy acquired from vegetarian sources. Tzippy is always telling me that my kids and I should eat more tehina. One tablespoon of tehina/sesame paste contains 16 mcg of folic acid, 153.6 mg calcium, and 3.07 mg iron. Unhulled sesame seeds have additional benefits, and are a great topping to pasta salad, baked goods, cereals, and dips.
1 cup of whole wheat flour
1/4 cup molasses (or brown sugar)
1/2 cup whole Tehina
1/3 cup canola oil
5 drops vanilla extract
