Method: 

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grind oats in a blender until coarsely ground (some whole flakes should remain intact). Do not wash out blender.

In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, flour, salt and baking powder.

Place tahini, sesame oil, vanilla, cornstarch and maple syrup in blender and process until smooth. Stir this mixture into oat mixture.

Drop tablespoons of batter on a greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until cookies are golden brown on bottom and puffed.
