Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies Without Butter

Chocolate chunk tahini cookies with Turkish coffee topped with sea salt on a cooling rack.

Chocolate chip cookies with tahini and Turkish coffee. No butter. Wonderfully chewy and nutty.




  1. Preheat oven to 350F/170C.
  2. Combine the first two using a hand whisk or an electric mixer. You will get a crumbly mixture. 
  3. Mix in the egg. 
  4. Whisk in salt. 
  5. Using a spatula, add in flour, baking soda and Turkish coffee. Stir until everything holds together. (It will look a bit dry, so a bit hard to stir, but everything will hold in a few minutes)
  6. Fold in chocolate chunks.
  7. Scoop a tablespoon of dough and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. 
  8. Bake for 10 minutes. 
  9. remove from the oven and sprinkle flaky sea salt over each when they are still hot. You can even place extra chocolate chips if you want more chocolate on your cookies. 
  10. After two minutes, transfer them on a cooling rack.
