The Healthier Date Cookies

Cookies that are actually better for you ๐Ÿ™Œ

Not loaded with sugar and packed with strengthening immunity and disease preventing goodies! Bonus they are GF + DF + can be Vegan!

I developed this recipe to be super easy and versatile so you can easily mix up flavours.

๐Ÿ’พ Save to make for an afternoon snack for you or your little people!

The why behind this recipe ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป

We have been on a mission to continue to lower โฌ‡๏ธ our sugar intake. Itโ€™s an ongoing journey that we often falter on ๐Ÿฅด hands up if you are guilty too?

I wanted to be able to still have a cookie that wouldnโ€™t sky rocket our sugar intake! So meet ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป

The Healthier Date Cookies

Makes 12

1/2 cup creamy almond or peanut butter

1/3 cup coconut oil, melted

4 tablespoons maple syrup

1 chia seed egg (see below) or normal egg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 3/4 cup almond meal

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups dates

Bang everything into a bowl and mix well. Evenly spoon out on to a lined tray to make 12 cookies . Bake at 180 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool before eating if you can wait that long ๐Ÿ˜†

My favourite way to do egg free is using chia seeds. Itโ€™s super easy 1 Tbsp chia seeds + 2.5 Tbsp water. Mix together and let it sit for 5 minutes until itโ€™s thickened up ๐Ÿ™Œ works as a great substitute in most baking.

Mix them up with some #organic orange zest and squeeze of juice or substitute the dates with nuts or chocolate chips or even both ๐Ÿ˜†
