So here’s the birthday recipe I promised you! I hope you love my creation just as much as my family and I love it!
These are so, so delicious! I make them every second day because me, my mum, dad and brother eat these Chocolate Date Cookies very fast. We all try to eat them slowly but we can’t! I made them yesterday and have one cookie leftover…..make that half a cookie…….
See my other post for more info on why I made this recipe:
MAKES: about 20 cookies (or depending on size) TIME: 25 minutes prep time + 10-15 minutes cooking time + cooling time
- 1 1/3 cup medjool dates, pitted, firmly packed
- 2 tsp vanilla essence
- 2 cups almond flour
- 2 tbsp cacao powder
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 eggs
Pre-heat an oven to 160°C and line trays with parchment paper. Place dates and vanilla essence in blender or food processor and blend well until a thick paste. Add the rest of ingredients to vanilla date paste in blender or food processor. Blend well until well combined and smooth with no lumps. Dampen hands with a little bit of water and scoop an oversized tablespoon of cookie mixture into hand. Roll mixture into a ball and place on trays. Use damp fingers or damp spoon to press cookies down slightly. Put cookies in an oven for 10-15 minutes or until slightly brown on edges. Once cooked, cool for 15 minutes or until firm. Store these very delicious cookies in an airtight container. Enjoy!
