Grain-Free, Sugar-Free Tahini Spice Cookies

Adapted from this recipe for 3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies


1/2 cup unsalted tahini*

1/4 cup pureed sweet potato (baked first)

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon orange zest

1/8 teaspoon sea salt

10-20 drops liquid vanilla stevia (I like NuNaturals)

*If you use salted tahini, just skip the salt in the recipe.


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Thoroughly mix all the ingredients together. I use my food processor so it's a nice, smooth batter. Taste for sweetness and add more stevia as desired.
  3. Scoop by the tablespoon and flatten for traditional cookie shape. Alternatively you can leave them as scoops as you see them in the photo above.
  4. Baked flat cookies for 12-13 minutes. Bake round cookies for 20 minutes. Let cool completely before eating.

Makes approximately 10 cookies.

Note: I went light on the spices. If you like lots of spice flavor, go ahead and add what you like and taste the batter before baking. Same with the orange zest.
