These Life Changing Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies are the best paleo-friendly, grain-free and gluten-free cookies around. If you haven't tried them yet, your life is about to be changed!


  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup tahini I recommend Soom Foods tahini, but any liquid-y tahini will work!
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 heaping cup of chocolate chips
  • 1 scoop collagen peptides optional
  • sea salt flakes for topping


  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium size bowl, mix together the almond flour, tahini, maple syrup, collagen peptides (if using), and chocolate chips!
  • The dough should be thick. If it's not, add a little bit more almond flour.
  • Mix to ensure everything is coated well, and place the bowl in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP, THIS IS THE MAGIC!
  • While the dough is chilling, preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Remove bowl from the refrigerator, and add the egg and baking soda, and mix together until fully incorporated.
  • Using a cookie scoop or spoon, scoop dough and form 16 cookies.
  • Bake for 10-11 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let the cookies settle before eating!
  • The key with these cookies is to slightly undercook them, so that they are nice and crispy on the outside and SUPER CHEWY on the inside.
  • Sprinkle sea salt flakes on top.
  • Enjoy!
