Ovadia’s 4-Ingredient Tahini Cookies

“Ovadia’s Fast and Healthy Tahini Cookies” was published on his school’s website today.

(Proud Ima 😉)

We make these often, which take roughly 30 minutes or less (great when you have a baby in the house) and are a nice homemade afternoon snack.

(*These can also be done exactly the same with Peanut Butter. I would use a natural Peanut Butter so you have the oils on top, just as you would with raw tahini.)

Let me share you the recipe.

What you need:

1 cup raw tahini

3/4 cup sugar

1 egg

2 tablespoons desiccated coconut


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F) .
  2. Mix raw tahini and sugar. Then add the egg and make into a batter. Lastly add the coconut.
  3. With moist hands, roll into small balls and put directly on baking sheet. Then press each one down with the palm of your hand.
  4. Add toppings of choice (chocolate chips, brown sugar and cinnamon, sesame seeds, sprinkles, etc).
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.
  6. Cool and enjoy!

And here is the Hebrew version for those interested!
