  • Yield: 16 (1 × 1½-inch) cookies


  • ½ cup sesame tahini
  • 1 cup coconut flakes, macaroon-cut or fine-cut
  • 4 tablespoons raw honey (liquid or crystallized) or coconut nectar
  • 4 tablespoons sun-dried cane juice crystals or coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon ashwagandha extract powder (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon shilajit (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon dried, powdered tulsi leaves or holy basil powder (optional)
  • Few pinches of sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon chai spices (I use cardamom, cinnamon, black pepper, clove, and allspice)
  • 2 tablespoons black sesame seeds, or white sesame if no black sesame is available
How to Make It
  1. Mix tahini, coconut flakes, and honey in a food processor until a ball forms.
  2. Add remaining ingredients to the food processor, except the black sesame seeds, which you will add at the very end and pulse a few times to incorporate.
  3. Roll into a ½-inch-thick dough between two sheets of parchment paper on a cutting board using a straight-sided glass or a rolling pin to evenly compact the dough.
  4. Cut into squares or other shapes with a cookie cutter. Store chilled.
