My kids can’t get enough of cookies, but I really don’t want them to eat the same thing over and over, especially if it is not really healthy one. So how do you make cookies all the time, yet manage to make them differently all the time? Try using dates!
For approx. 20 cookies:
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
- 1 cup (250ml) of organic oatmeal flakes
- 1/2 cup (125ml) of quinoa flakes
- 1/4 cup (62.5ml) of organic brown rice flour
- 1/4 cup (62.5ml) of organic coconut flour
- 3 tbsp.(45ml) of organic tapioca starch
- 1 tsp. (5ml) of baking powder
- 1 tsp. (5ml) of baking soda
- A pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup (125ml) of vegan butter
- 2/3 cup (166.6ml) of organic brown sugar
- 1 tbsp. (15ml) of organic grounded flax seeds
- 3 tbsp. (45ml) of water
- 1 tsp. (5ml) of vanilla
- 2/3 cup (166.6ml) of organic chocolate chips
- 3/4 cup (187.5ml) of pitted organic Medjool dates
- 3/4 cup (187.5ml) of organic walnuts
- Preheat your oven to 375º.
- In a small bowl, combine the flax seeds and the water and let it rest for about 10 minutes until it gets thick.
- In a medium bowl, combine the oatmeal flakes, the quinoa flakes, the brown rice flour, the coconut flour, the tapioca starch, the baking powder, the baking soda, the salt.
- Then chop the dates and the walnuts
- I another bowl, cream the butter and the brown sugar. Gradually add the oatmeal mix and stir.
- Then put in the flax seeds, the vanilla, the dates, the walnuts and the chocolate chips and continue to mix until it’s all blended.
- Place your cookie dough on a cookie sheet and put it in the oven for about 15 minutes or until they get golden.
- When you remove them from the oven, let them cool for 5 minutes before you transfer them on a wire rack.
As I always do, I asked my readers to take part, maybe tell me what they think about my recipes and give me some tips, as well. What do they think of this one? Do they like it, did they make someone important to them happy with it? Did it help them save some time? Simply, what do our readers say about this recipe? Here it comes:
“I made these for Christmas and New Years, and they were great. I had non gluten free friends tell me they were the best cookie they ever had. I was worried about the quinoa in them for texture but it worked fine. Thanks!!”
“Thanks for this recipe! Saved me when I was in a hurry to make something for my friend’s birthday. Followed directions to the letter, although I left out the chocolate chips, just personal preference ;). These were delicious, with just enough sweetness. Also, baking them 15-16 mins was perfect timing. Any longer than that and you risk burning them (I learned that the hard way).”
And a little note before I will finally say goodbye to y’all: You’re 1 000, no 1 000 000, no 1 000 000 000 times more awesome and nice and excellent than every recipe here. Love you, love you all!
