  • 1 Bowl
  • 1 Whisk
  • 1 Spatula
  • 1 Baking sheet
  • Parchment paper


  • ¼ cup (60 ml) Maple syrup
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) Tahini
  • ½ cup (60 g) Almond flour
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup (90 g) Tapioca starch
  • tsp Baking soda
  • Sesame seeds for coating (optional)


  • In a bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, tahini, and vanilla extract until smooth and no lumps remain.
  • Add the almond flour, tapioca starch, and baking soda and mix well with a spatula. The dough will be thick and sticky.
  • Refrigerate the dough for about 20 minutes to make it easier to handle.
  • Preheat the oven to 350℉ (175℃) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Scoop out about 1 tablespoon of dough and roll it into a ball. If using sesame seeds, dip the ball in a plate of sesame seeds to coat it lightly.
  • Place the ball on the prepared baking sheet and flatten it slightly with your palm or the bottom of a glass. Repeat with the remaining dough, leaving some space between the cookies.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden around the edges.
  • Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a cooling rack (if you have) to cool completely.
  • Enjoy your vegan tahini cookies with a cup of tea or coffee, or store them in an airtight container for up tp 3 days.
