Chocolate Chip Tahini Cookies (gluten-free, paleo)

These flourless chocolate chip tahini cookies are gluten-free, nut-free and paleo. They’re soft, chewy and utterly delicious. So easy to make!
When it comes to homemade cookies, I find that most people have a preference when it comes to texture. Some like harder, crunchy cookies, like my homemade almond butter cookies. Some like cookies that are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, like my best chocolate chip cookies. And some like soft and chewy cookies, like today’s recipe for chocolate chip tahini cookies.
And I’m happy to have a cookie recipe for everyone!
These tahini cookies are a delicious alternative to your regular chocolate chips cookies and they’re completely flourless and nut-free. Yep, not even almond flour in this recipe. That makes them one of my favorite uses of homemade tahini.
Unlike my other cookie recipes, these tahini cookies are super light and fluffy. That’s thanks to the two eggs in the recipe. They’re like little cookie clouds and more of a cake texture versus a crumbly cookie texture. And bonus – they’re incredibly easy to make.
Just add all of the ingredients into a mixing bowl and use a hand mixer to beat everything together for a minute or so. Fold in the chocolate chips, then scoop the tahini cookie dough onto a baking tray with this medium cookie scoop. One of my favorite (and very useful) kitchen gadgets.
Once the tahini cookies are all on the baking sheet, smoosh them a little with your fingers, place them in the oven and bake them for about 15 minutes. That’s it.
My favorite chocolate chips are Pasha chocolate chips (which I’ve mentioned before on the video for my chocolate peppermint slices). The reason why I love them? They’re organic, gluten-free, dairy-free and soy-free. A very allergen-friendly bag of chocolate chips and the ingredient list is one of the cleanest I’ve found when it comes to chocolate.
Lastly, if you’re looking for something to dunk these cookies in, I highly recommend my homemade cashew milk.

Chocolate Chip Tahini Cookies
These chocolate chip tahini cookies are flourless. They're also gluten-free, nut-free and paleo-friendly. A soft, chewy, fluffy, delicious tahini cookie that will soon become your favorite!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
Add all of the ingredients except the chocolate chips into a large mixing bowl. Use a hand blender to mix everything together.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Use a cookie scoop to scoop the dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Then, use your fingers to gently flatten the cookies a bit (you may need to wet your fingers to prevent sticking).
Bake the cookies for 13-15 minutes, or until golden along the edges.
- I made these cookies with my homemade tahini, which is fairly thick and the consistency of peanut butter. A store-bought tahini might provide a slightly different texture.
- These cookies will not spread much. So feel free to flatten to your desired thickness.
