TAHINI RAISIN COOKIES (GRAIN FREE, SCD DIET) a delicious crispy-on-the-outside cookie made with tahini, almond flour and raisins.

Before I became somewhat invested in the health and wellness space, I’m pretty sure I had no idea what tahini even was. If you, too, are going around pretending like you know what tahini is, let me tell you: it’s toasted sesame seeds, ground up until they become a butter. Then, you have tahini. It can be pretty expensive to buy, just like many of the nut butters, but you can also make it yourself; don’t be intimidated. It’s actually easy. I have a recipe for it.

Whatever way you get your tahini, whether it’s homemade or store-bought, you can make some absolutely delicious crispy cookies with it. The raisins go well with it, but of course, if you can have chocolate, I would definitely recommend trying these bad boys with chocolate chips or white chocolate chips. If you’re on a strict SCD diet, let’s stick to the raisins though– they offer a nice sweetness and surprise in each bite, regardless! 

They are the perfect balance of the trifecta of cookie qualities: chewy, soft and crispy. Yes! Find the recipe below.

  1. mix all the ingredients until well combined in a small bowl or in the food processor, and fold in raisins last.
