Gluten Free Honey Tahini Cookies

© 2023 |

© 2023 |

These delicious honey tahini cookies are both chewy and crisp and so easy to make. The rich tahini gives these cookies a addictively nutty, almost fudgy texture and earthy flavour while sesame seeds coating for extra crunch. They are grain-free, gluten-free, refined-sugar-free, egg-free and dairy-free. Will keep in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

  • 155 g Blanched almond meal
  • 2 tbsp Coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon powder
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 150 g Tahini
  • 100 g Honey (or maple syrup)
  • 60 g Sesame seeds
  1. Preheat oven to 160C/320F fan forced. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
  2. Combine the blanched almond meal, coconut flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a large bowl. Add the tahini and honey and mix until well incorporated. Place the sesame seeds in a separate bowl.
  3. Use slightly damp fingertips to roll 2 teaspoonfuls of the tahini mixture into a ball. Roll in the sesame seeds and place on a prepared tray. Flatten slightly. Repeat with remaining tahini mixture. You will have 20-22 cookies.
  4. Bake the biscuits for 10-12 minutes or until golden, rotating baking trays halfway through. Set aside on the trays to cool completely. The cookies will firm up as they cool.

Hello Angie,
Your cookies look and sound delicious. I have never tried tahini in a recipe.
Thanks for sharing. Have a happy weekend.

I recently (quite by accident) discovered I am not allergic to almonds, after being told years ago by a doctor that I was. These look yummy. I think for Valentine's Day I need to make some cookies for the hubby. These would be a good choice. Happy weekend Angie.

Angie, I really enjoy cookies that are not too sweet, and this case healthy too! They re perfect to snack on, and have with a good cup of coffee.


Balvinder 12/2/23 01:56

I must try these. They look insanely delicious.

Rose world 12/2/23 09:19

I love such cookies. Nutty and chewy.

Norma2 12/2/23 17:14

Angie, we don't always have Tahina in our pantry. It can be made by grinding toasted sesame seeds with corn or sunflower oil.

Maria Grazia Ferrarazzo Maineri 12/2/23 18:30

Your recipes are always so interesting, Angie!
Thank you!

Hena Tayeb 12/2/23 21:58

These look great.. unfortunately my son is allergic to sesame seeds.

Raymund 13/2/23 23:02

Wow, these honey tahini cookies sound so yummy! I love how versatile and allergy-friendly they are. And the nutty and earthy flavor from the tahini with the crunch from the sesame seeds sounds like a perfect combination. I can't wait to try making these!

Ben | Havocinthekitchen 14/2/23 01:40

Oooo these look terrific! I love tahini and tahini cookies, but I haven't had cookies for years. Thank you for such a beautiful reminder :) Loving the use of almond meal and honey!

tigerfish 14/2/23 04:05

Cookies that rhymes - honey tahini! Plus the sesame seeds' nutty fragrance. Simply irresistible.

Yvonne @ Fiction Books Reviews 15/2/23 09:04

Love all things nutty and honey sweet!

I wonder if the tahini makes the mix moist enough, seeing as the recipe is egg and dairy free. We are both bad people I'm afraid, so gluten free doesn't figure in my baking usually :)

I'm trying these today and I can't wait! They're perfect for my family (and me!!!) :-) ~Valentina

Valentina 18/2/23 06:14
