Cook Time
12 min


  • ½ cup tahini
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup large flake oats
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • ½ tsp each sea salt and baking soda
  • ½ cup chopped dark chocolate (70% cocoa or greater)


  1. Arrange oven racks in top and bottom thirds of oven; preheat to 350°F. Line 2 large rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. To a food processor, add tahini, maple syrup and vanilla; process to combine. Add egg and blend until well combined. Add oats, almond flour, salt and baking soda; pulse 10 to 15 times until ingredients are blended and oats are broken up. Stir in chocolate.
  3. Drop batter onto prepared sheets, about 1 tbsp per cookie, making 28 cookies. Bake in top and bottom thirds of oven, rotating and switching sheets halfway through, until golden and just starting to brown on edges, 12 to 14 minutes. Cool completely on sheets.
