No-sugar, ultra-healthy oaty cookies
So good, you’ll have a job keeping your hands off them!

Ingredients

200g pitted dates
100g flaxseed, ground (or buy pre-ground flaxseed)
200g oatmeal
100g oats
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 large eggs
4 tbsp coconut oil
2 tsp vanilla extract

You will need: a bowl, a spoon, baking trays lined with greaseproof paper. The oven pre-heated to 180degrees.

 

Method

Soak the 200g of pitted dates in a jug / bowl of boiling water for approx 10 mins to soften them.¬†While they’re soaking, grind the flaxseed then add to another bowl along with the oatmeal, oats, cinnamon and baking powder, and stir.

Mulch the dates – I used a Bamix hand food processor to make it easier – so they form a sticky paste.

Melt the 4 tbsps coconut oil, then add it, the dates, and the eggs to the oaty mixture. Stir it all together. It should be quite a sticky consistency.

Taking your greaseproof paper-lined trays, roll the mixture into balls then flatten with your hand, or the back of a spoon. Put them in the oven and cook for around 15 mins or until lightly browned.

Enjoy them as a snack on your own, or share them with the family. Delicious and nutritious, what more could you ask for?
