Sesame Cookies Recipe

Difficulty: Easy | Total Time: 16-20 minutes | Active Time: | Makes: 14 cookies

The lovely Gluten Free Sesame Cookie recipe was inspired by a tahini cookie recipe on, one of my favorite food sites. Below is my version, sans gluten and sugar. Enjoy!

  • 1 ¼ cups blanched almond flour
  • ¼ teaspoon celtic sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ⅓ cup agave nectar
  • ⅓ cup tahini (raw or roasted, though roasted will give more flavor)
  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup sesame seeds (hulled or unhulled -I used hulled)
  1. In a large bowl, combine almond flour, salt and baking soda
  2. In a smaller bowl, blend together agave, tahini, oil and vanilla
  3. Blend the dry ingredients into the wet
  4. Form the dough into 1 inch balls and roll in the sesame seeds
  5. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and flatten
  6. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes until lightly brown
  7. Cool on baking sheet
  8. Serve
