Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies

The slight bitterness of the tahini is tempered by the coconut sugar and maple sugar, making this gluten-free whole grain cookie chewy and irrestible.

  • ¾ cup tahini stirred well
  • 4 tbsp olive oil or unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ½ cup maple sugar or sugar
  • ½ cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1 egg large
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups/150 g gluten-free oat flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp fine sea salt
  • ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips


  • In a large bowl, whisk together the tahini and olive oil. Whisk in the sugar, egg and egg yolk, and vanilla. In a medium bowl, whisk together the oat flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add the dry mix to the wet and stir well to combine. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • If at all possible, refrigerate dough for 12 hours. If you don’t have enough time, try to get at least an hour.
  • Then heat oven to 325 F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Remove dough from fridge and scoop balls of dough about 1-2 teaspoons’ worth. Place on sheets at least three inches apart. Bake for about 13-15 minutes, until edges are set and lightly browned. Remove from oven and let cool completely on a rack, at least 15 minutes.
