TOTAL TIME :10minutes10minutes10minutes
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 (packed) cup pitted Medjool dates (*buy pit-in version and remove pits)
  • 3/4 cup unsalted, unsweetened peanut butter (sub almond, cashew or sunbutter or tahini)
  • 2 large eggs, whisked (sub flax or chia eggs for vegan)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a food processor, combine oats and dates and pulse until combined into a chunky mixture, approximately 10 pulses.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and pulse until ingredients are incorporated and you can only see tiny pieces of dates and oats. Carefully remove blade from processor.
  4. Place a bowl of room temperature water between the baking sheet and food processor. Dampen your hands in the water to prevent sticking, and roll dough into 2 1/2 inch balls. Place balls on baking sheet, leaving at least 2 inches between each.
  5. Wet a fork and use the tines to gently press down on each cookie until it is approximately 1 inch thick. You can turn the tines in opposing directions to create a cross-hatched look.
  6. Bake for 11 minutes, then allow to cool completely before enjoying them.

  • Anne

    How many dates you recommend? Thanks!

    • Laura Lea Bryant

      It’s about 8 large or 10 small!

  • Kayla Keller

    Do you think you can blend the ingredients in a blender if you don’t have a food processor?

    • Laura Lea Bryant

      You could use a high-powered, wide-based Vitamix or blend tec, but a regular blender won’t work, as the dough is quite sticky. I hope that helps!

        Yes, thank you!

    First off let me say you’re amazing I absolutely love your cookbook it is hands down my favourite in my collection and my go to. This is the second time I have made these cookies and they are most definitely a hit in my household (can never go without you’re chia jam for them though :D) today however I somehow forgot to add the eggs and they still turned out excellent. You recipes are fool proof and never cease to amaze ! Thank you!!
