Chocolate Tahini Cookies

I’m absolutely obsessed with these cookies. I can honestly say these are the best healthy cookies I’ve ever made! They’re so addictive! I’ve made these so many times over the last couple of years so I have no idea why it has taken me this long to share it!

These chocolate tahini cookies are so rich and indulgent but full of healthy ingredients that are GOOD FOR YOU!

The main ingredient in this recipe is Tahini – you all know how much I LOVE my tahini 🙂 It’s an excellent ingredient to add to vegetarian and vegan diets (or any diet, really). High in Calcium, Zinc, Vitamins B1, B2 and B3 as well as your 9 essential amino acids

Now, just because they’re healthy doesn’t mean they have zero calories and you can eat as many as you want and lose weight! Tahini is high in fat, albeit the good kind of fat, but too much of a good thing can still be bad for you. Tahini is basically toasted sesame seeds blended into a butter  – exactly the same concept as peanut butter, but better (in my opinion!).

These chocolate tahini cookies are dairy free, grain free and gluten free. The recipe is actually based on the Tahini Brownies recipe that I posted a few weeks ago.

    1. No they’re not necessary but they add extra sweetness and texture. You could always use things like chocolate chips and nuts 🙂

  2. I’m new to your blog and I love it! I made these yesterday and they are amazing, by far the best “healthy” biscuits I’ve ever made. The calories and fat are quite high though, comparatively. Is there anything I could use to balance out the Tahini to bring the calories down? I was wondering about adding some oats to bulk it out – any better ideas?

  3. These look great, and I want to use them for a cookie baking competition. I see Tahini and nibs look drizzled on top. Did you do that after? I didn’t see it in the directions, wasn’t sure if it would be an overload in flavor or not.
