Minimalist cookies, folks. These are chewy like a date truffle but shaped like a cookie. And… They are healthy, plus so simple to create in as little as 5 minutes. I like to enjoy a couple of these treats with an evening cup of tea.
1 cup rolled oats
12 pitted medjool dates
1 tsp vanilla extract or powder
3 tbsp cacao (or cocoa) powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor or Vitamix until well-combined into a dry, but sticky dough-like consistency. If too dry, add more dates. If too sticky, add more oats.
2. Roll the dough into 8 balls.
3. On a flat nonstick surface, press each ball down into a flat cookie of your desired thickness.
4. Pop these in the freezer for 20 minutes to chill and then serve. Store in the fridge.
Recipe yields 8 small cookies. Recipe can easily be doubled. Enjoy!
