I bought tahini to make hummus. I had a lot left over, so I decided to make a yummy cookie with them. They passed the husband taste test, so I thought I would share with all.

Beat flour mixture in gradually until dough is just combined. Stir in coconut, oats, and almonds. Drop spoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.

  • Bake in preheated oven until edges are golden, 9 to 11minutes. Cool on baking sheet for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

10.17.18... https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/245802/tahini-honey-oatmeal-cookies/... I had to adjust a bit. The dough was sticky so I added 3/4c more flour & 1/3c more oats; no nuts. I refrig'd overnight & these still spread quite a bit. I couldn't imagine 1T cinnamon being right. I used 1t cinnamon. While good if I didn't have tahini already I'd look at this as a waste of money.

Awesome cookies!!! I used all brown sugar instead of half brown and half white but that's just a personal preference. I also wasn't sure if I should use sweetened or unsweetened coconut. I used unsweetened coconut and and it turned out great! I like the texture with the slivered almonds too. A definite winner of a recipe!! Read More

The cookies are very good my family loved them. The tahini gives them a nice smooth consistency. They're a little bland for my taste I will add some almond extract next time I make them. Read More

These were excellent. I was trying to use up some tahini and found these, but what I didn't expect is how similar they were in terms of richness to a peanut butter cookie. My son has a peanut allergy, so we can't ever have those... this is such a great find for us! I had to make a substitution because my coconut was stale, so I just increased the oats a bit to replace the coconut. Worked out really well. Read More
