{Inspired} Maple Tahini Cookies

The other day Heather posted about some tahini cookies and I wanted to try them. She was inspired by Cookies & Crafts.

Maple Tahini Cookies

(They did taste better than they look.)


  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1.25 cup flour (I used buckwheat farinetta)
  • 1 T cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


Mix everything together. Scoop onto a greased baking sheet (heaping soup spoon of batter for each cookie?). Try to put them farther apart than I did. I didn’t want to dirty two pans but I should have because they expanded. Bake at 350F for 8-9 minutes. Eat.

These were good. Next time I will make them with regular flour as buckwheat farinetta tends to have a bit of an odd flavor that not everyone likes. (I like it, but for example, Bobby does not.) I might add some coconut flakes too. Yum.

I have actually not been in the mood for sweets at all lately. These cookies are not overly sweet, but I ended up taking what I couldn’t eat in to work for my coworkers. I also made recently a delicious “muffin bread” that is gluten free and not that sweet either. I will share it later this week.

What’s your favorite kind of cookie?

I think mine is… really rich sugar cookies. Mmm. Almost like biscuits.

In other news, we started renovating our downstairs. My house is a disaster area because we had to bring all of our belongings up onto the first floor (we have a basement + first floor duplex) and everything is now piled and perched precariously in the living room and bedroom. I just finished going through some clothes that we dumped in our bedroom and I made a nice pile to give away or sell. My friend recommended Tradesy.com so I might try using that. (ETA: I am now on Tradesy: {HERE}.)

Can’t believe that just ~10 months ago we were doing the same but to the upstairs! That was supposed to take 2 weeks and ended up being almost 2 months. I am expecting this project to take about a month. It should take <2 weeks and it’s a simpler job than the upstairs, but when renovating you always have to add in time for unexpected issues. Some of which we have already found icon smile {Inspired} Maple Tahini Cookies I will post before and afters at some point.

    My favorite kind of cookie? Oh man, that’s a tough one. Love me a really good thick chunky chocolate chip cookie…especially when served fresh from the oven with vanilla ice-cream. However, lately I’ve been craving my mom’s classic oatmeal raisin, and I love homemade sugar cookies with cream cheese frosting. Mmm, cookies! I loved Katie’s recipe and am hoping to make another batch today or tomorrow. Been on a cardamom kick lately and loving it in my coffee.

    Good luck with the downstairs renovation. Hope it’s all done soon!
