  • Yield: 1 dozen cookies 1x


Delicious, soft and chewy tahini cookies that are Paleo, Vegan and allergy free.



  • 1/2 cup tahini (salted)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 43g cassava flour (1/4 cup)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips


  1. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine tahini, maple syrup and vanilla.
  2. Add in remaining ingredients except chocolate chips.  Mix well.
  3. Fold chocolate chips into the batter.
  4. Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes*
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  6. Scoop chilled dough (1 Tbsp per cookie) onto baking sheet.
  7. Place in the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.


*I highly recommend chilling the cookie dough for at least 30 minutes.  You can choose not to chill the dough, but it will result in a much flatter, spread out cookie.  Also, cooking time may vary slightly.
