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.

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. I’ve made these 3 times. I didn’t have dates the first two times so I used dried berries the first time and fig jam the second time. The third time I had dates and they were perfect, but they tasted amazing every time. I didn’t measure the chocolate chips but less is more for me. Perfectly delicious and so easy.

    • Hi Naomi! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review on this recipe! We so appreciate it and are so happy you enjoyed these!

  2. The cookies exceeded my expectations and taste SUPER fancy for a straightforward recipe — the rolled oats lend a chew to the creamy tahini and maple syrup body. Don’t skip the chopped dates, they add a really unique flavor and texture! Also make sure not to overbake, I erred on the side of 10 minutes and they were very soft straight out the oven, but get firmer as they cool and in the fridge.

  3. Hiya! Can’t wait to try these 🙂 I wanted to ask if they can be put in the freezer and baked later from frozen? or perhaps chilled overnight? Thanks! Mx

    • You can absolutely chill them beforehand! I would recommend taking them out of the fridge for about an hour to come to room temperature before baking so that they spread 🙂

  4. These are soooo yummy!
    I had to sub dark chocolate chips for the regular chocolate (I reduced the quantity because 4oz was way too much). I also used sea salt which gave an amazing salty pop against the sweetness of the dates. Definitely going to make them again.

    • Hi Maya. Great questions! Vanilla extract adds a delicious flavor to baked goods and really deepens sweet flavors. We recommend using 100% pure vanilla extract for the best results!
