Cashew Coconut Date Cookies

Dates are naturally very sweet, making these cookies delicious without being overbearing. Cashew and coconut combine for a sweet and salty duo that gives the finished product every flavor advantage.

What You Need:

  • 1-1/2 cups finely ground oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon aluminum-free baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup unsalted cashew butter
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2/3 cup non-hydrogenated canola spread
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped unsulfured dates
  • 1/2 cup cashew halves

What You Do:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Finely grind oats in blender. In a bowl combine oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda and sea salt. In a larger bowl, blend together cashew butter, water, maple syrup, non-hydrogenated canola spread and vanilla until smooth. Add dry mixture and gently blend until combined. Do not beat or over-mix. Stir in coconut and dates.
  2. Drop heaping tablespoonfuls onto oiled cookie sheet-press down lightly on dough ball with fingers to flatten. Then nestle one cashew half into center of each cookie. Bake until tops are lightly browned but still soft-approximately 10-12 minutes.
