Dark Cocoa Tahini Cookies (Gluten-Free)


Image: Tina Turbin

Celiac.com 12/07/2016 - With the holiday season upon us baking is on everyone’s mind. Homes are filling with excitement and the families are planning big meals, and visits and gatherings of family and friends. We are well aware that pie is an ever popular dessert but how about something different this season that adheres to the Paleo template! These Dark Cocoa Tahini Cookies will delight everyone as a clean and healthy, fresh change to their senses.

Dutch-processed cocoa is an unsweetened cocoa powder which is a bit darker than natural cocoa and has its natural acids neutralized with an alkali. This reduces that common bitter flavor and lends a milder and mellower flavor. Dutch-processed cocoa dissolves quicker than natural cocoa. I also find that I can use less of this when I am developing recipes and I get a deep rich chocolate type flavor I am going for that I just love.

Hi, I?m new to this forum. I?m not a native English speaker so sorry if my English is not perfect :-) For the past 2,5 years (at least) I?ve had typical symptoms of celiac disease.* When I realized this (too late I guess) I went gluten free immediately. So I?ve been gluten-free for approx. ...

If I thought celiac was what I had, it would be easier for me to get myself into ketosis. Just by saying hey there's a reason you should do this. Gluten intolerance is one thing, knowing what's wrong with me would be another. For people with fears like mine, therapy doesn't work. I have tri...
