Ingredients

 

1 cup Hungry Harry's All Purpose Flour Blend

1/4 cup cocoa powder

3/4 cup allergy friendly oats

3/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 cup granulated sugar

3 tablespoons confectioners sugar

1/2 cup coconut oil or vegetable shortening, soft but not melted

2 eggs, lightly beaten, or 2 egg replacers

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

15 dates, pits removed and sliced in half

 

How To:

Preheat your oven to 350°F. Prepare a baking tray with a sheet of parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients. Add the oil, egg, and vanilla. Mix to combine. The dough will be thick and stiff – you can squeeze it together with your hands to bring it all together.
Roll the dough into small balls, then place each one on a baking tray. Space each cookie 2 inches apart.
Using your palm or the back of a spoon, flatten each ball slightly, then press half of a date into the center of each one.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the cookies get lightly toasted on the outside edges. Yum!
