Yields

24 small cookies

Ingredients

6-7 dried pitted dates
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup brown rice flour
1 cup quinoa flour
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 tbsp cinnamon
1/4 tbsp nutmeg
1/2 cup melted coconut oil
1/2 cup maple syrup


Directions

  1. Soak dates in 1 cup of water for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 190°C (375°F). 
  3. Combine oats, flour, coconut, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a bowl.
  4. Roughly chop the dates.
  5. Add oil, syrup, and dates and mix until all ingredients are moist.
  6. Form little balls and place on a lightly greased parchment lined baking sheet (it may take some work to form the dough and get the balls to stick together).
  7. Press cookies lightly so they do not roll off baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes.
  9. Take out baking sheet and flip cookies.
  10. Bake for an additional 5-10 minutes.

Notes

If you have a food processor, you can use it to mix the dough, which makes the cookies easier to shape. Do not over mix the dough or you’ll lose the texture of the cookies.
