Halvah (Tahini) Cookies

  • Prep Time: 3 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 13 minutes
  • Yield: 18 cookies 1x




  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine tahini and honey until fully incorporated. Move about half the mixture to another bowl.
  3. In one bowl, add the tapioca flour and mix. In the other bowl, add cacao and mix.
  4. Form marbled cookies by taking roughly 1/2 Tb from each bowl and smooshing (real, professional cooking term) into a ball. Line these balls on the baking sheet, pressing softly with your fingertips to flatten them out a bit.
  5. Bake for 10-13 minutes. 10 minutes will get you a soft, chewy cookie (akin to the halvah texture I was going for) and 13 or more minutes results in a crispier cookie.
