Oatmeal, Raisin, Coconut, and Chia Seed Cookies

If you can believe it, these cookies don’t have any added sugar, but they’re still sweet thanks to the dates, coconut, raisins and nut butter. They do take a couple hours to prep, but are so worth it.

Servings: 30 cookies
Calories: 64kcal

Ingredients

  • 2 cups finely ground rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup dried unsweetened shredded coconut (ground)
  • 1/2 cup currants or raisins
  • 1 Tbsp ground chia seeds
  • 1 Tbsp whole chia seeds
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp raw almond butter
  • 1/2 cup dates chopped and soaked in 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil

Instructions

  • Soak the dates in 1/2 cup water for an hour or more.
  • Grind the oats and unsweetened coconut into a flour using a high powered blender.
  • Grind the chia seeds into a powder using a spice grinder.
  • Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
  • Place the almond butter, soaked dates (with their soak water), applesauce, vanilla and coconut oil in a food processor or high powered blender (like a Vitamix). Blend until smooth, then add to the dry ingredients and mix well.
  • Form cookies on a baking sheet lightly sprayed with oil or covered with parchment paper (I used parchment paper because the cleanup is way easier!). Use about 1 Tbsp of batter for each cookie, and spread the cookie out on the parchment. The cookies won’t spread as they bake so be sure to spread them out into a “cookie shape” using a fork or spoon.
  • Bake at very low heat: 200 degrees for 1.5 to 2 hours (mine took 1.5 hours in the oven, but it depends on how hot your oven is). When they’re done, they’ll be slightly browned and crispy on the outside.
