Chocolate Chip Tahini Cookie

Cooking Time

12 minutes


18 cookies


  • 1/2 Cup unsalted butter (organic is possible)
  • 1/2 Cup Tahini
  • 1/4 cup Local Honey
  • 3/4 Cup Sucanat or Brown sugar
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1 Egg yolk, preferably free range
  • 1 1/2 teas orange extract or 6 drops orange oil
  • 1 1/2 Cup flour or Gluten Free substitute
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 1/2 Cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 Cup chopped nuts of choice


Preheat oven to 360 degrees

Cream sugars with tahini and butter until smooth and fluffy.  Add eggs then dry ingredients.  Mix on low speed for 5 minutes.  Add chocolates and nuts mixing until just incorporated.  

Allow dough to refrigerate for a minimum of 2 hours.  

Scoop by rounded tabled spoon or use ice cream scoop onto a parchment paper lined tray.  

Bake for 9 minutes, rotate pan baking an additional 3 minutes to even out the color.  If your preference is a softer cookie, remove from oven when a hint of color graces the outer edge of cookie.  If your preference is a crisper cookie, bake cookie until there is a golden hue of color across the face of the cookie.  Keeping in mind, a cookie continues to bake for 3 to 5 minutes once removed from the oven.



By replacing half of the fat in this cookie with a sesame nut butter, introduces healthy protein rich fat.  The nutty flavor combined with the orange makes this recipe delectable.
