Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled oats finely ground
  • ½ cup shredded coconut dried; ground
  • ½ cup raisins or currants
  • 1 tablespoons chia seeds ground
  • 1 tablespoons chia seeds whole
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • cup almond butter
  • ½ cup dates chopped and soaked in water
  • ¾ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon 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.
