Happy last weekend before the official start of Autumn! . At least that’s what my daily planner is telling me. 😉 You know, when I was a little kid (and let’s be honest, an adult), I thought that autumn started in August. Did you? (Someone help me out here!)
It’s just… by the time the end of July rolls around, and all the Fourth of July clearance stuff is gone from the stores, there are fall things everywhere.
Bright orange and yellow leaf displays, boxes and boxes of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, fresh-baked loaves of pumpkin bread stacked into the shape of a ginormous grinning Jack-o-lantern, big ol’ bins of plastic pumpkins and huge bags of cinnamon-scented pinecones that make it all feel like fall is here, folks!
So in anticipation of all the fall festivities, family events and food-centric activities that call for all the yummy healthy desserts, I thought I’d share one of my newest favorites to the paleo + vegan cookie jar…

Chewy Gluten Free Chocolate Tahini Cookies (Vegan, GF): this flourless chocolate chip cookie recipe is Paleo! The best double chocolate chip cookies—chewy & decadent. Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Healthy, Refined Sugar-Free.
- ½ cup unsalted tahini
- ½ cup natural, unsalted creamy almond butter
- 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon ground flaxseed + 3 tablespoons warm water, whisked together, set for 15 minutes)
- ¼ cup + 3 tablespoons coconut sugar
- ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract (optional)
- 1 tablespoon coconut flour
- 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- ¾ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt (optional)
- ½ cup vegan chocolate chips
- 2–3 tablespoons vegan chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or greased foil. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, add all ingredients except chocolate chips. Using a rubber spatula, stir and fold until thoroughly mixed.
- Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop and drop cookie dough onto baking sheet, evenly spaced apart. Do not roll cookie dough in the palm of your hands—this will cause the dough to warm up and release too much oil, resulting in spread out cookies with unseemly crispy edges. If cracks form, press back together with your fingers. Press chocolate chips into the tops of each cookie.
- Using the palm of your hands, just lightly press down to flatten cookies—they will spread and flatten during baking. Keep cookie dough balls mostly round and high, with just a bit of a flat top. Again, press together any cracks that form.
- Bake for 10-14 minutes. Mine took 12 minutes. Place cookie sheet on a cooling rack, and allow cookies to cool directly on the sheet for 10-15 minutes—do not remove from sheet for at least 10 minutes, as cookies are fragile. Then, using a spatula, gently transfer cookies directly onto the cooling rack to cool for about 30 minutes, or until completely cooled. Enjoy! Storing notes below.

Hi Demeter, these look fantastic! Do you happen to have nutritional info?
I LOVE these! I am not vegan so I add an egg instead of flax. This seems to make the batter a bit dry/firm so I also add a couple tbls of non-dairy milk. For an extra addition, these are incredible with a teaspoon-ish of cinnamon and 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of cardamom. I know I just kinda changed the recipe… but I love the chocolate tahini combo! The spices just make them seem extra decadent to me. Plus anti-inflammatory benefits? I’ve also made these when I’m low on tahini or almond butter and they each seem to work well interchangeably. I’ve used crunchy almond butter too and that crunch is nice. What I’m saying is, these are very versatile!
So glad to hear you’re having such fun with the recipe Jessica! Thanks for taking the time to let me know. 🙂
I would love to make your beautiful cookies and give them as a gift to a special girlfriend. She has informed me that one of her family members Is highly allergic to all nuts. What could I substitute the almond butter with? I read through all the comments just in case someone else happened to ask that question. Could I just use the same amount of tahini? Or do you think there would be something better? Thank you so much! I look forward to hearing back from you soon. 😊
Hi Nancy! That’s so sweet of you to make these for your friend. I’d recommend using sunflower seed butter or soy butter, as they’re both great nut-free alternatives that other readers have used in many of my other recipes before with good results. Let me know how they turn out! 🙂
Hi Demeter, I hope you are well! I went to the local supermarkets in my area and unfortunately neither of them sold sunflower seed butter. So decided since I couldn’t find it locally I would use one cup unsalted organic tahini and kept everything else the same. They turned out perfect! So tasty, so delicious! I cannot wait to give them to my girlfriend for her family to enjoy! Thank you so much for all that you do in your recipe development! We your readers are definitely the beneficiaries. Lots of love and hugs from Sydney Australia. 😊
Hi Nancy, I hope you’re doing well too! 🙂 I’m really glad to hear that you were able to make this recipe work with 1 cup of tahini. I hope your girlfriend and her fam absolutely enjoy these. Thank you so much for your kind words–they always mean so, so much to me. Sending you lots of love and great big hugs back from Minnesota!
Can I sub 1 whole egg for the flax egg?
I haven’t tried it myself, but it should be okay. Happy baking!
I used one large whole egg in this recipe and it turned out perfect! I just forgot to mention it in my prior comment.
Thanks for your input, Nancy! 🙂
Thanks so much for another keeper recipe! I doubted this straight away as I knew that I wouldn’t regret it! You had me at “double chocolate.” I have fallen in love with tahini and I had never used it before your recipes.
It’s absolutely my pleasure, Michelle! Aren’t “double chocolate” two of the most magical words in the dictionary? Hehe! I’m so happy that you’re enjoying tahini & my recipes! Happy baking. 🙂
