    Preheat oven to 190°C (375°F). Line 2 or 3 baking sheets with parchment paper. In bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.

  • Step 2

    In separate bowl, using electric mixer, beat together butter, tahini and both kinds of sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 min. Beat in egg and vanilla. Use a spatula to stir in flour mixture until just incorporated. Fold in oats and chocolate chips.
