Tahini Biscuits

Tahini Biscuits

Tahini is a paste made from toasted, ground sesame seeds. It has a light, nutty flavour and has a range of health benefits!  Tahini is full of healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals.   It’s also rich in antioxidants and contains anti-inflammatory compounds.  I hope you enjoy this healthy recipe which is also egg and dairy free (and gluten free if you use gluten free baking powder!)



  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 3 tbs of sweetener of choice (I used coconut sugar, you can use more if you have a sweet tooth)
  • 1/3 cup hulled tahini
  • 1 tsp finely grated lemon rind
  • 1/4 cup olive oil or coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup nut butter of choice (I used peanut)
  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground mixed spice
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds



Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.


Combine the lemon juice and bicarbonate of soda in a bowl (mixture will become foamy). Add sweetener, tahini, lemon rind, oil and your chosen nut butter. Using an electric mixer, beat for 1 minute or until mixture is just combined. Sift flour, baking powder, cinnamon and mixed spice over tahini. Add sesame seeds. Beat on low until just combined.


Roll 2 level teaspoons of mixture into balls. Place on prepared trays, 4cm apart. Flatten slightly with a fork.
Bake for 15 minutes, swapping trays halfway during cooking, or until golden and cooked through. Stand on trays for 5 minutes. Cool the biscuits on a wire rack.
