3 Ingredient Grain Free Cookies

grain free cookies

After I put up the school cookies yesterday I decided to make a grain free version. We like these just as much. I hope you do too.

3 Ingredient Grain Free Cookies

6 medjool dates, seeds removed

1/2 cup hulled tahini

1/4 cup coconut flour

Preheat your oven to 175 degrees Celsius or 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a cookie tray with baking paper.

Place the ingredients into your blender or food processor. Pulse until the mixture is well combined. Roll the mixture into small balls and place on the baking tray. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool completely. Enjoy.

    Hi Bianca, what could I substitute for tahini to still be a nut free version for school? I am quite addicted to the taste of it now, once I started eating the school cookies it was hard to stop but I still can’t convince my boys :(

    Perfect for me, as so many cookie recipes have almond flour, which I can’t use. I’m making these very soon. You photo is gorgeous too. I found you in the Chowstalker newsletter and am going to become your newest subscriber. Have a super day!!

    Which hulled Tahini do you use?

    • https://wholefoodsimply.com/ Bianca Slade

      I think the brand is Mayvers. I live in Australia, it is the one I can purchase from my local shops.

      • http://livingreal-blog.com/ Betty Jo Martin

        I thought it might be one I could find on Amazon, so I could try it, but it isn’t sold there. I’m sure I can find a suitable brand in my local Whole Foods. I put a lot of your Paleo recipes on my Pinterest yesterday, and used several of the photos as my board covers, I love your photos so much. Which camera, lens, and photo editing program do you use, if you don’t mind sharing?

          Hi Belinda, I just use my phone and natural light for the photos, I don’t know the first thing about photography but I am pleased that you think my pics are ok…. Thank you for sharing the recipes, I am glad you are enjoying the site.

          • http://livingreal-blog.com/ Betty Jo Martin

            I think your phone is better than my Canon!! Your photos are awesome. Keep up the good work!! I’m moving from my apartment soon to the country where I’ll have access to more natural light and I can hardly wait. Good lighting is a must for good photography.

    Can you tell me what brand of processor you have, how many watts?

    • https://wholefoodsimply.com/ Bianca Slade

      There are lots of great food processor options that work well for our recipes. I have had positive feedback on the magimax, thermomix, belini, and the higher end brevile range. If you follow our facebook page people often discuss what they like to use there. I hope that helps. Bianca

    I just made these and there was no way the mixture was able to be rolled into balls. I used about 10 regular dates in place of medjool, could that have been this issue? I was able to plop the mix onto the trays and they cooked fine – just wasn’t sure what I could have done wrong.

    • https://wholefoodsimply.com/ Bianca Slade

      Yes, using regular does is the issue. If you use regular dates you would need to double the quantity and perhaps even briefly pre soak them in water. I hope this helps.

    I made these today (after having the tab opened for over a week). They’re not overly sweet, and considering I’ve only just started eating unprocessed foods, I actually like them. My daughter on the other hand, does not. But that’s okay, they’re now called “Mummy’s cookies.” Haha. Tempted to try melting some dark chocolate and dunking the bottom of the cookies into it to try and convince her. XD

    Yum! I have finally made these and I get to eat them all! As hubby and miss 16 months don’t like them :) will try with peanut butter next to for something different

      Fabulous!!! Thank YOU. x

  • Amy W

    Made these this afternoon. So so delicious! I want to eat more, but I can’t do another batch as I have no more tahini left until I make more (daughter has allergies so store bought is a no go).
    I also had not used my coconut flour in a long time, so this is perfect as I love using coconut flour. Kids love them too, so they will go into the lunchboxes tomorrow. Thank you!
