Gastrawnomica’s Tahini-Coconut Cookies

Makes 9-10 cookies

2 Tbsp coconut flour

1 Tbsp tahini, most be soft 

1 small orange, juice

1/4 cup water

Thin banana slices and a little bit of coconut flour for topping. (CAN’T omit banana slices)*

First decide if you want to bake the cookies or dehydrate for a raw version. If dehydrating, cookies will take overnight dehydration, for baking, preheat oven at 350ºF.

First mix your tahini and make sure it is very soft, even try to melt it a little bit by putting hot water in a pot until very spreadable. Add the juice of 1/2 orange and mix together. You’ll get a sticky dough. Add in coconut flour, 1 Tbsp at a time and the rest of orange juice mixing all the time. Add water while you’re mixing, add it slowly, until you have the perfect cookie dough consistency. It must be shapeable, not too sticky, too dry or too moist.

Start making little balls with the dough and put in a cookie sheet previously greased and covered with parchment paper. If dehydrating, put in your dehydrator trays. 

Once you have all your cookie balls ready, take a fork and LIGHTLY press down in both directions, making a “cross”.

Bake for 15-20 min at 350 and allow to cool down when ready.

*I recommend you to serve these with fresh fruit and bananas are ideal! The cookies might be a little dry by themselves because of coconut flour, so if you don’t add any extra liquid sweetener like me add banana slices on top. Because they give them an extra sweet punch and the combination is just heaven. 

Didn’t last enough…

  2. Haha, I wasn’t able to wait till the weekend! Tried them right now and I really liked them. They were a bit dry, but with fresh fruits very yummy! Thanks for this recipe!
    And I have to add, that I really like your blog….go ahead :) ;)

    • I’m really glad you like them! The first time they were a bit dry for me too, coconut flour has so much fiber it absorbs all liquids! The second time they were even better, and definitely it is a most to top with fresh bananas for a creamy and sweet touch :)

  3. The cookies looked so good that I couldn’t wait to try them but I did not have coconut flour so I substituted oat flour added a few walnuts and dehydrated apple slices with cinnamon and pulverisized it. I then followed the rest of your ingredients and when done, topped the cookies with a banana slice. I was in heaven, OMG!!! Delicious!!! And your right,,,,the banana slices are a must, Thank you!!! Keep the recipes coming. You make it so easy to be vegan! p.s. Happy 4th of July!
