These cookies were basically an accident. My twin terrors were screaming for more “kota”- their word for biscuits-and I had just run out. So I hurriedly threw together a couple of what I considered healthy ingredients I had on hand in the food processor and found myself with a pile of delicious cookies I couldn’t get enough of.
The best thing about these cookies is that they’re really easy to make and actually full of good stuff. They’re pretty filling too so you won’t be tempted to eat more than a couple.
Oh yeah, and they’re oil and butter free;)
1 cup instant oats
1 cup wholewheat flour
¼ cup brown sugar
½ cup almonds
¼ cup raisins
7-10 pitted medjool dates
¾ Tablespoon baking powder
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon salt
Mix everything together in your food processor and pulse until mixture comes together.
Use a spoon to scoop balls of sticky cookie dough onto greased baking sheet. Flatten them with the back of the spoon.
Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for around 12 minutes and be careful not to over bake or they will become dry and break-your-tooth tough.
