Hi Joy!
These are great. I love healthy cookies as a morning snack and I LOVE tahini. I made these little cookies with raw tahini and raisins instead of chocolate because I had some at home. They made my kitchen smell amazing!

I made these last night and they were excellent! The only issue I had was that I found it very difficult to mold into cookies. It was a very sticky batter. Besides that, they were a big hit. Thank you!

Try using a small ice cream scoop, it worked great for me!

We LOVED these cookies, tasted great plus they were so easy & quick to make! I used 2 tbsp of almond butter and 4 tbsp of tahini.

Having had delicious black sesame gelato, I love the idea of tahini desserts, but I just wonder – doesn’t the tahini taste bitter? Seems like there are a lot of desserts out there with tahini and I always wonder if the creators of the recipes don’t experience tahini as bitter, or if they found a specific kind that just isn’t as bitter as the rest. I see you recommend a specific brand, and I’m wondering is that brand not bitter, or is tahini just not bitter to you? The black sesame gelato wasn’t bitter, but also didn’t taste a bit like tahini. More nutty – like a smooth, almost smokey peanut butter… What’s your experience?

Black sesame gelato is soooo yummy! Thanks for reminding me. ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t personally find tahini bitter and that’s the first time I’ve heard anyone mention that before. Maybe try a different brand and see if it has the same effect. Or buy some sesame seeds and make it yourself in a food processor? Hope that helps!

I never knew tahini can be used in baking! This is very interesting! I’m love tahini and hummus, they’re very delicious and healthy! I’ll ask my wife to make this for me, thank you for sharing this recipe!

Hello there!!

Just thought I should let you know that I just finished making your recipe for Chewy Chocolate Chip Tahini Cookies. WOW, WOW, WOW, are these ever easy AND yummy!!!! Even licking the sticky batter from my fingers, once I was done placing the cookie dough on the baking pan, was so good!!!!

1 cup oats and 1/2 cup coconut flakes is the only thing I changed, and only because I had some coconut to use up. Thought I would try it, and it worked out fine!!!

I’ll send you a picture in a few minutes.

Thank you so much for this super simple, but oh so yummy treat!!!

All the best,
Monique Robinson

Just made these with pumpkin seed butter because my jar of tahini was almost empty. They are so delicious! I will definitely be making again (with either seed butter!).

Hi Joy!
I Made these cookies today and they are absolutely fantastic – so quick and easy with just one bowl and minimal cleanup. I wonder if you’ve tried making these with other “butters” (almond, cashew, hazelnut)?
Cheers, Candace

Yes totally! I have made them with almond butter and also sunflower seed butter — equally as delicious!

Amy

Hi made these with almond butter, absolutely delicious! Just wondering how long they will keep for? x

Hey Amy! So glad you liked them. They should last 5-7+ days when stored in an airtight container but you can always freeze them for use later! Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve made this recipe three times with similar frustrating results. The batter is so crumbly and difficult to mold into cookies. I always second guess myself, thinking I’ve missed a wet ingredient, but no. Any tips?

Reply

Rachel Molenda

Hey Evelyn, Sorry to hear this ๐Ÿ™ That’s frustrating. I’m thinking it could be your tahini. Do you keep it in the fridge or cupboard? It’s best to keep it in the fridge to maintain it’s freshness but it can give it a hard consistency. I would recommend using a fresh jar of tahini so it’s still smooth or letting the tahini sit out for a bit before using it. Hope that helps! Rachel – Joyous Health Team

These are awesome! Super easy to make and already had everything on hand. Next time I think I’ll add raisins too ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi Amy! Glad you love them!

Hi There

I can’t have oats but love how simple the recipe is! What can I substitute instead of the oats to get the same consistency in this recipe?!

Please let me know

Hey Amanda! Are you able to tolerate quinoa flakes? That might be a good alternative ๐Ÿ™‚ Rachel – Joyous Health Team

Hi There
Thank you so much for your reply. Would this be a 1:1 equal substitution for quoina flakes to oats?

Hi There

Thank you for the reply.
Are the quinoa flakes a 1:1 substitute for the oats?

Hey Amanda! Sorry, I’m not sure how your comment was missed. We haven’t tried it, but that should be okay! Rachel – Joyous Health Team

We don’t have any quantitative nutrition facts as we encourage people to look at food from a qualitative perspective aka the nutritional properties it provides. You can trust that since these cookies are packed with fibre and healthy fats from the oats and tahini, they won’t spike your blood sugar like a normal cookie would and will keep your mood and energy levels in check ๐Ÿ™‚
