Tahini Date Cookies w/ Pecans (Vegan, Gluten Free)

These outrageously good cookies are my favorite!  The combination of nuts, tahini, and dates make these absolutely delicious!  Seriously.  And the texture?  Soft on the inside, slightly crisp on the outside, and bits of pecan crunchiness.  DROOL.  

I can't wait for you to try these out because they 1. are super easy with simple steps;  2. bake within minutes; and 3. taste superb!  Best of all, they can be customized!  Don't like dates?  Substitute chocolate chips.  Don't have pecans?  Don't add them, or sub another nut.

Stay safe and bake away, friends!


1 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup tahini
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/2 cup dates, chopped into small pieces
1/4 cup pecans, chopped into small pieces


Following these instructions exactly will provide the best results.

1. In a mixing bowl, combine the old fashioned oats, almond flour, salt, and baking soda.

2. Add the tahini, maple syrup, and vanilla.  Mix well to form a thick dough.
3. Stir in the chopped dates and pecans.
4. Roll tablespoon sized balls of dough and arrange on an ungreased cookie sheet, making sure each cookie is about 1 inch apart.  Gently flatten the tops of the balls of dough with your fingers (not too much, as the cookies will naturally spread).
5. Bake for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees.
6. Remove the cookies from the oven and let rest for five minutes.  Resist the urge to touch the cookies or, otherwise, they might break! 
7. Gently remove the cookies from the cookie sheet with a fork or thin spatula.
8. Enjoy!  These cookies taste best warm, but you can store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for about a week (tasting best by warming up in the microwave or oven).
