Almond Butter Oat Cookies


Hope your day is going well!

Yesterday, I attempted my third batch of the cookies that I’ve been working on that are compliable with a no sugar diet/plan.

After bringing this third batch into work this morning to see what my coworkers thought of them, I finally feel like the recipe is ready for sharing.

Here is the recipe for the cookies:


Almond Butter Oat Cookies

1 cup Medjool dates, pitted, chopped and soaked*

1 cup almond butter

1/2 cup old fashioned oats

2 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder

2 tsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. vanilla

a liberal pinch of salt


Preheat oven to 350.  Line baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a food processor, combine the dates and almond butter. Place mixture into a mixing bowl. Add oats, cocoa powder, cinnamon, vanilla and salt. Mix well. Using approx. a couple tbsp. of mixture at a time, roll and form*cookies. Place cookies onto parchment paper lined baking sheet.

Bake at 350 for 5-7 min.

Let cool.


Yield: 1 dozen cookies

* The Medjool dates were soaked for approx. 10 min., but you can soak them for longer if you like. Medjool dates are the specific type of dates that I used, but feel free to swap Medjool for another variety you have.

*Form cookies almost like you would a burger patty.


Let me know if you try making these! I would love to hear what you think!
