Oatmeal & Date Cookies
Servings: Makes 40 Cookies
Prep time: 15

Chef Naxielly Dominguez created these easy to make cookies for one of our programs for Latina breast cancer survivors. We needed a sweet treat that was healthy and dairy free. These Oatmeal & Date Cookies are it. You can get these delicious cookies together from start to finish in 30 minutes. Why would you ever buy store bought?


1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.  Cover 2 large cookie sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.

2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, oats, shredded coconut, baking soda and chopped walnuts. Make a well in the center. Set aside.

3. In a separate mixing bowl, beat together the coconut oil, sugar, egg, vanilla and salt using a hand whisk. When it is well blended, pour into the well in the flour mixture and mix well with a spatula. Fold in the chopped dates.

4. Using 1 tablespoon of dough for each cookie, spoon the dough 2 inches apart onto the prepared sheets. Bake in the center of the oven for 10-12 minutes or until they are lightly browned.
Remove from the oven and set on racks. Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes.

Ann's Tips and Tricks

Coconut oil is solid when you buy it. Stand the jar in a bowl of hot water to melt enough for the recipe.

Eat all sweet, sugary treats in moderation. A little bit of what you fancy does you good, but don’t overdo it!
