Tahini Almond Cookies, chewy delicious gluten-free, dairy-free and sugar-free cookies, with some crunch from the crushed pistachios topping, are fast and easy to make, nutritious, and perfect to satisfy your sweet cravings.

Recipe adapted from: Natural Kitchen Adventures


  • 100 g almond flour (or almond meal, or ground almonds)
  • 35 g chickpea flour (if you want to omit chickpea flour, replace with a total of 135 g of almond flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 150 g maple syrup
  • 120 g tahini
  • 1 ½ Tbs olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • roasted, salted pistachios, chopped, for topping


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F (180° C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine almond meal (or ground almonds), chickpea flour and baking soda.
  3. In a smaller bowl, weigh and stir together maple syrup, tahini, oil and vanilla.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, and combine until you have a medium stiff cookie dough.
  5. Use a small ice-cream scoop to portion the dough and place it on the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Flatten the dough balls with a fork and top with chopped pistachios.
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned. They will still be soft and harden as they cool.
  8. Cool on a wire rack.


The cookies are best eaten fresh or within a day. They can be stored in an airtight container for a few days, but they will lose some of their chewiness, becoming a little hard.
