Hazelnut Tahini Cookies


These cookies are a super quick and super tasty snack to make on a weekday or weekend – I am somewhat obsessed with tahini in case you haven’t guessed, and these cookies feature tahini as a key ingredient! I hope you enjoy them as much as I did – let’s bake!


Recipe (Makes 10 Cookies)


  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 heaped tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp of water
  • 2 heaped tbsp of milled/ground flaxseed
  • 150g of quick cook oats
  • 130ml of milk
  • 1 handful of raw hazelnuts, roughly chopped


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180C. Line a baking tray with tinfoil (greased with a little oil or butter) or greaseproof paper.
  2. Take a large mixing bowl, and add all the dry ingredients to it – oats, milled flaxseed, cinnamon and ginger, and mix to combine them.
  3. In a small bowl, add the tahini and water and stir to combine them, to loosen out the tahini a little. Set aside.
  4. Add the honey and milk to the dry ingredients, and stir. Next, add the tahini/water mix, and stir everything up again.
  5. Finally, add the chopped hazelnuts and fold them into the cookie batter.
  6. Using a spoon, transfer small scoops of the batter onto the baking tray, and flatten and shape each one into a round cookie.
  7. Pop the cookies into the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes – check them at 30 and if a toothpick or fork inserted into the centre of the cookie comes out clean, you’re good to go!
  8. Allow to cool for 20 minutes before giving them a taste test with a cuppa! Store in a sealed Tupperware container for up to 3-4 days or freeze the batch.
