Joy McCarthy's chewy chocolate chip tahini cookies


  • 6 tbsp tahini
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup real maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats , or oat flakes
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips


  • PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees.
  • COMBINE all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Stir together until fully combined. Make sure the tahini is evenly spread throughout the cookies.
  • GREASE a baking sheet or line with parchment paper.
  • DROP 1 tbsp spoonfuls onto baking sheet.
  • BAKE for 10-12 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Let cool slightly then transfer to a cooling rack.


I went with 1/3 cup maple syrup because I added the chocolate chips. I would suggest adding 1/3 cup first and giving them a taste test. If they are not sweet enough for you, then use 1/2 cup. I used the ENJOY Life brand of mini chocolate chips because they are dairy-free and gluten-free.

They will seem a bit crumbly when you put them on your baking sheet, don’t worry they solidify nicely when they are cooked.
