Healthy DATE cookies

Updated: Mar 16, 2020

I made these in hopes of my kids not liking them. I had visions of Will and I sitting in our little tea-drinking spot, drinking gallons of tea over one or two cookies here and there. Bonding like.

No such luck. I tried. They were good enough for the kids OR they just condescended to eating them.. either way. The batch was gone in about 48 hours. Not to sound like a greedy pig or anything… but now I’d like to hide a few of them next time.

They use dates. What’s a date? It’s this fig-looking thing. My kids said that it reminded them of a larvae they studied in biology. I was hoping THAT ALONE would have kept the critters out.

See what I mean? Kind of weird. Anyway, you need a small truckload of them to make this.

And if you are looking for this on google, do not put “date images”.. er uh.. yeah.

Anyway, the recipe!

2 1/2 cups of chopped dates (food processor works fine)

1 cup of butter

1 cup of brown sugar

4 eggs

Mix all in mixer.

Add: 4 cups of wheat flour/ or spelt/ kamut, etc.

1 cup rolled oats

1. t baking soda

1 t. salt

2 cups of chopped pecans

1/3 cup flax seed.

Roll into little blobs. Bake for 350* for 13 minutes.
