  • Sheet pans
  • Parchment paper


  • 2/3 cup tahini
  • 2/3 cup maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup dairy-free dark chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Add the tahini, maple syrup, applesauce, vanilla extract, and salt to a large mixing bowl and mix well.
  • Add the coconut flour and mix until combined.
  • Add the dairy-free dark chocolate chips and mix again.
  • Chill the dough in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Scoop out heaping teaspoons of the cookie dough, then use your hands to roll them into balls before placing them on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
  • Use your fingers to press the cookie dough balls down to form flat, circular shapes.
  • Bake for 8 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Let cool before serving.
  • Makes approximately 24 vegan tahini chocolate chip cookies.


  • The cookie dough is sticky, so you may have to wash and dry your hands about halfway through the process of rolling and flattening the cookies before resuming. 
  • Store in an airtight container for a few days or freeze them for long term storage.
