INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, combine the oats, salt, raisins, chocolate chips, baking powder, cinnamon, and fenugreek (if using). In a separate bowl, whisk together the tahini, maple syrup, egg, vanilla, and lemon zest. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until well combined. Wet your hands and scoop out a heaping tablespoon and form into a ball. Add to the baking sheet, press down lightly, and repeat until all dough is used. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool on the baking sheet at least 10 minutes.
