Tahini Date Cookies

Made with just 5 ingredients, these perfectly sweet Tahini Date Cookies are a heavenly match for your morning cup of tea or coffee.

Tahini, made from ground sesame seeds, has a slightly bitter taste compared to other nut/seed butters. Dates, on the other hand, are incredibly sweet, which balances out the bitterness of the tahini perfectly. These soft and chewy cookies go so well with a cup of coffee or tea in the morning or crumbled on some vanilla ice cream for dessert.


  • 1.5 C old fashioned oats

  • 10 Medjool dates, about 1.5 C (with pits)*

  • 1/2 C tahini

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

* pre-pitted dates tend to be very dried out, but if that is all you can find, soak them in hot water for 10 min then drain and blend as directed


  1. preheat oven to 350

  2. pulse oats in food processor until they reach a flour-like consistency

  3. remove pit from dates and add in with remaining ingredients and blend until combined

  4. roll into balls (about 2 tbsp in each) then flatten with palm and form into cookie shape, makes 12 cookies

  5. bake for 10-12 min


Xx, Kara
