And the pairing of tahini with chocolate? Always a good thing.

Tips for Making Flourless Tahini Cookies
The coconut sugar can be replaced with any granulated sugar of your choice.
I have not tested it without eggs for a vegan version, but I have had some feedback from readers that replacing the egg with a flax egg works well. If you try it, let me know!
In a pinch, the vanilla extract can be omitted. It only enhances the flavor a bit.
The recipe works with both salted or unsalted tahini. If you aren’t a fan of salted chocolate, then I recommend using unsalted. If you use salted, omit the added salt from the recipe.
Fun variation: This recipe works any nut or seed butter of your liking. You can replace the tahini with almond butter, peanut butter, pecan butter, sunflower butter or pumpkin seed butter for very similar results.
It’s very important that you follow the freezing step for best results. Alternatively, you can refrigerate the dough the night before baking.
These cookies store well at room temperature for 24 hours or in air-tight containers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
