Every year, we Indians celebrate Makar Shankranti/ Pongal during winter. This unique Indian festival is characterized by sesame and nutty desserts sweetened with jaggery. My vegan keto sesame cookies are inspired from the til k laddoo often made during this unique Indian festival.Indian sesame cookies

My Indian sesame cookies will remind you of the Uber-popular sesame laddoos or til-ke-laddoos. It has a strong sesame taste beautifully balanced by almond flour and cardamom, and sweetened with jaggery and brown sugar or keto sweetner. Middle eastern sesame cookie

If you ask me about the flavor profile, these cookies resemble the digestive cookies in texture and flavor profile, but with a strong hint of sesame nutty goodness and festive flavors.Indian sesame cookies

Hi Sophie, this sounds great! If I don’t find sesame flour, can I use just almond flour? And if I add tahini for the sesame taste, should I reduce the butter?

Reply
Sophie July 17, 2019 - 10:17 pm

Yes you can totally do that. In fact you can take out butter completely if you want and add coconut oil plus tahini. Almond flour works great for this recipe, but remember to add at least little coconut flour as almond flour spread while baking.
