Coconut Date Cookies

These were very tasty and quick to make! Sorry that mine look like something from outer space....ha ha! Next time, I'm going to bake them a little longer. A keeper for sure!


Coconut Date Cookies

Makes 12 cookies

Ingredients:
1 cup pitted dates (approximately 15-20 whole dates)
1/4 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp canola oil (I used olive oil)
1/4 cup soy milk (I used almond milk)

Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 350*F.
  • Put all ingredients in a blender/food processor and blend well until there are no large date pieces.
  • Portion mixture into 1 inch balls, place on greased cookie sheet, and flatten with the back of a spoon/spatula.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes on 350 degrees.
  • Remove from oven and cool on cookie rack.
  • Store cookies in the refrigerator.

Option: Melt 1/4 cup of chocolate chips in the microwave. Using a fork dipped into the melted chocolate, drizzle on top of cookies. (Cookies should be cool).
