All my sesame lovers, where ya at?! This one is for you! It’s no secret that I am already obsessed with tahini, which y’all know is a paste made from ground up sesame seeds, but I’m gettin’ crazy today and using these nutrient-rich seeds both ground and whole in these gluten-free, vegan cookies that only require 4 ingredients, and about 15 minutes of your time.

It all started when I was brainstorming on ways to use my New Chapter Fermented Black Seed Booster Powder. Sure you can add it to the more obvious (and delicious) choices- smoothies, milk, juices, oatmeal, etc. But I wanted to think outside the box a bit- and naturally my mind goes straight to cookies.

This recipe stems from my obsession with a gluten-free, vegan dessert recipe I learned from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition when I was achieving my health coaching certification. Their version uses honey, but to keep these vegan I use maple syrup.

So what’s the deal with this Fermented Black Seed Booster Powder? It offers occasional stress relief and memory support, while aiding a healthy mood.* And I don’t know about you, but sometimes as I feel the weight of the world, I need a little boost in all of those areas. This powder combines the power of Black Seed (Nigella), Turmeric, Lion’s Mane, and Aloe, with a nutrient-packed fermentate, to deliver a supplement that soothes and provides holistic wellness support.*

A fun fact I forgot to mention about these gluten-free, vegan, 4-ingredient sesame cookies is that they can be baked or not! I tried them both ways and they were scrumptious. If you’re looking for more of a crunch, then bake them for about 12 minutes. If your cookie monster self is rearing to the surface and you can’t wait, then go ahead and enjoy the cookie “dough” as is.

Why I like New Chapter’s Fermented Black Seed Booster Powder is not only because of the amazing benefits it provides, but also because it is fermented with probiotics and whole foods to result in a more easily digestible powder- bonus!

Sesame Seed Cookies

Course: Breakfast, Dessert
Cuisine: American
Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 12 min
Total time: 17 min


  • 1.5 cup sesame seeds (I used 1 cup traditional and 1/2 cup black sesame seeds but you can use just traditional if preferred)
  • 2 servings (1 tsp) New Chapter Fermented Black Seed Booster Powder
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • pinch salt (opt)
  • additional sesame seeds for rolling, also optional


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees (if baking them)

  2. In your blender or food processor, grind the sesame seeds until they achieve a fine meal, but don’t grind too much to where they become a paste like tahini

  3. Pour into a large bowl and add the other ingredients and mix well to make a “dough”

  4. Form into cookies and roll in additional whole sesame seeds if desired

  5. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes or enjoy as no-bake cookies!
