What to expect from these double chocolate tahini cookies? These are not your regular chocolate cookies. I know this because hubbs came home, saw them, picked one up to take a big bite, then you should have seen his face. Then he looked at the cookie as if to ask what the heck is going on. But the texture was too good, so he took another bite, then another and then he was like what are these! I love the damn texture, so melt in the mouth! And the bitter flavor is growing on me. Soon the batch was all gone before I could even explain.
These are like peanut butter cookies which are just peanut butter and sweetener. If you dislike peanut butter, you might not like pb cookies. Similarly, you might find the mellow tahini flavor intrusive here. Its a balanced tahini chocolate flavor. You can use tahini + nut butter for less tahini profile. The added coconut and a sprinkle of salt on top (thank you Lucy!) helps reduce the flavor too.
1 Bowl Chocolate Tahini Cookies. Amazing Texture and flavor in these Easy Cookies. 8 Ingredients. 20 Mins. Vegan Glutefree Grainfree Nutfree Oilfree Recipe
- 1/2 cup tahini stirred
- 1/3 cup coconut sugar or other fine sugar of choice
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp non dairy milk room temperature
- 3 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1.5 tbsp coconut flour (see notes for subs)
- 1 tbsp tapioca starch or other starch
- 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 deg F (180 C). Line a baking sheet with parchment. Mix the tahini, sugar, vanilla, non-dairy milk until well combined. Do not over mix as the tahini will seize into a stiff mixture.
Add the rest of the ingredients and mix gently. (You can also add in 1/4 cup shredded coconut at this point). Add in the chocolate chips and fold in.
Shape into flattened cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet. Press a few chocolate chips on the top if needed. (You can also sprinkle some maldon salt on top and press in. Salt helps reduce the bitter profile).
Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 mins** Cool for 2 mins then remove from the baking sheet and allow to cool down completely before serving.
** Adjust the baking time depending on preferred texture. A minute or so longer for crispier. Keep the cookies thicker for shortbread like texture. Thinner for crispier.
Coconut flour and starch sub: If you can eat gluten, sub all purpose or wheat flours for either or both of coconut flour and tapioca starch. you will need 3 to 4 tbsp.
