3 Ingredient Tahini (or Peanut Butter or Nut Butter!) Cookies, Refined Sugar Free


Saturday baking anyone? If you need a nut-free alternative to peanut butter cookies, these three ingredient tahini cookies are super easy and free of refined sugar! I’m sure you’ve seen the popular recipe all over Pinterest for grain-free peanut butter cookies that only require 3 simple ingredients. I decided to try an allergy-friendly, nut-free version with tahini, and they turned out great! (Note: a couple of my kids are not fans of tahini, and eating it in cookie form did not convince them otherwise. In other words, if you don’t like tahini, you probably won’t like these.)

I would imagine these cookies would work well with sunbutter too for another allergy friendly version, or other nut butters if you just want a peanut free version. I think I’ll try cashew butter next! 


  • 1 cup tahini (or peanut butter or other nut butter) 
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips (optional) 


  1. preheat oven to 350
  2. combine all ingredients
  3. scoop spoonfuls onto parchment lined baking sheet and make a criss cross with a fork to press each ball of dough down slightly 
  4. Bake for approximately 10 minutes  
  5. allow cookies to cool slightly, then melt chocolate and drizzle with a spoon on top of cookies
