Gluten Free Tahini Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Yes these Tahini Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies are vegan, gluten free, and refined sugar free, but they sure as heck don't taste like a healthy food.

Monday just got a whole lot better with these gluten-free tahini oatmeal chocolate chunk cookies (say that 10 times fast) and and and they’re VEGAN.

These cookies are vegan, gluten free, and refined sugar free, but they sure don’t taste like it. 

Listen, I think cookies are part of a healthy diet–I really do. Everything in moderation.

Buttttt sometimes it is nice to mix in something that you just can’t feel bad about. Aka whole, natural ingredients that fuel your body and don’t leave you with a sugar spike.

But but I also don’t want those whole, natural ingredients to taste like cardboard. And don’t you dare try to feed me some stevia-sweetended oat brick and tell me it’s a healthy “cookie.” Good for you stuff doesn’t have to taste like it, kind of like those raw brownies I made a little while ago.

These cookies do not taste like an oat brick. In fact, they don’t even taste like they’re healthy at all.

Sofi and I made these 3 times in one week and are still not sick of them.

I am not exaggerating when I say this is one of the best cookies I’ve ever eaten. And I’ve eaten my fair sure of cookies. They’re sweetened with maple syrup and dates, making them just sweet enough, but also salty enough to keep things interesting.

The combination of vanilla, cinnamon, and maple with tahini’s signature sesame-y undertones make for a complex flavor that I could literally eat everyday. Toss in some hunks of dark chocolate and I AM SOLD.

Make these cookies. Like just do it.

DO IT.

XOXO!

Units:

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup tahini
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 3 tablespoons almond flour
  • 4 oz dark chocolate, chopped
  • 3 dates, chopped

Instructions

    1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
    2. In a large mixing bowl, mix the tahini, maple syrup and vanilla extract together until combined.
    3. Add in the oats, almond flour, salt, cinnamon, dates and chocolate and mix until everything comes together. The batter might still be a little runny. As it sits it will thicken up, so don’t worry! But if your batter is super super runny, add one more tablespoon of almond flour. And if it is too thick, add in a tablespoon of tahini. Let the batter sit for 10 minutes to thicken.
    4. Using a cookie scoop, scoop out the batter onto the lined baking sheet. Flatten the cookies slightly with your palm. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. The middle of the cookies should still be pretty raw (they’re vegan!). Do NOT over bake, you want them to be chewy and gooey in the middle.

  1. These were absolutely divine!!! Made them for a little galantines thing and went down a treat. I did them in the air fryer at 150C for 8mine and they turned out amazing!!

    However, I halved the recipe which only made 5 very small cookies (much smaller than the photos) and used the metric measurements to make them so not sure what I did wrong haha. My dough came out very thick (not sure why) even though my tahini was very running and I followed the measurements in grams so I had to add a few tbsps of almond milk.

    Regardless they tasted absolutely insane and will be making these on repeat!!!

  2. I adore these cookies. My husband loves them even more. Now my mother-in-law is hooked. Slowly reeling in every family member over here. Wondering if the dough can be refrigerated/made ahead for the same amazing result? Thanks for a gem of a recipe!

    • Hi Becca! I love it–it’s a family affair! You can make the dough ahead of time–the cookies just don’t spread quite as much because the oats absorb the liquid!

  3. I was looking for something sweet to increase my milk supply as I am a new mom. And this was perfect. Tahini is actually one if the best foods that increase lactation in addition to oatmeal and dates it was the perfect combination plus the fact that it doesn’t call for sugar or ap flour. These cookies are addictive!

  4. These truly are the best cookies! I have made them at least 8 times in the last few months. Please, do yourself a favor if you don’t have tahini go to the store and buy it. It takes these cookies from good to amazing. It’s well worth it. The only thing I do different, I use honey instead of maple syrup. It gives it the best chewy texture. So yummy. I am not even vegan and they are my absolute favorite cookie
    Thank you for the recipe
