Black Tahini Cookies

I’m a tahini lover, I could put it on everything… And I do. But black tahini is something I don’t use too often. This kind of tahini is simply made from black sesame seeds instead of white. The outcome is slightly more bitter but incredibly rich and filled with deep sesame flavour - perfect for soft sweet cookies like these.

Black Tahini Cookies

I’m a tahini lover, I could put it on everything… And I do. But black tahini is something I don’t use too often. This kind of tahini is simply made from black sesame seeds instead of white.

They are a slightly different style of cookie, but nonetheless interesting in a treat for the tastebuds.

Notes
  • These cookies are best consumed within three days.
  • Pure monk fruit powder is a sugar-free sweetener (read more about what monk fruit is and where to get it here), not to be confused with “monk fruit sweetener” which is actually an erythritol based sweetener. 
  • The use of pure monk fruit powder in this recipe is what makes it low-carb and/or keto friendly. If this is not a worry for you, the best substitution is coconut sugar. Please know that the use of coconut sugar takes away the sugar-free status of this recipe and may alter the colour of the finished product.

  • Any nut butter works with this recipe.
