Mom’s Whole Wheat Tahini Cookies

February 29, 2016

This is my mom’s tahini adaptation of her favorite peanut butter cookie recipe. The sugar has been reduced (a lot) and some extra ingredients added for a little crunch. It’s a nice not-too-sweet snack with afternoon tea.


1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 cup tahini
1/2 cup wheat germ
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking soda
Pinch salt
1 tsp vanilla
Some dried sweetened coconut (to taste)
1 1/2 cups rice crispies

Cream together the butter and brown sugar. Add the egg, tahini and vanilla. Stir in the dry ingredients and fold in the coconut and rice crispies. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 15 minutes. These cookies are best if well-baked (until they start to brown).
