These are soft cookies that will give you that warm comforting feeling you are looking for. These cookies can be eaten for breakfast, a snack, or dessert. They are so quick to make with clean ingredients you can feel good about.
Your body needs fiber. Most people don't consume enough. It is not protein you are lacking - it's fiber!! There is a reason they say an apple a day - and it isn't just for the vitamins. Apples are packing with fiber. Combine them with the oats and dates and you have a fiber packed snack. Eat a couple for a snack or dessert or have a couple with some fresh fruit for breakfast. They would go great with a smoothie when you just need a little extra something!
Makes 18 cookies - serving size: 2 cookies
1 cup oat flour
1 cup almond flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup applesauce
2T non-dairy milk
1/2 cup apples, peeled and finely diced
4 pitted dates, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 350˚
Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper of silpat mat.
In a large bowl combine flours, baking powder, and salt. In a smaller bowl combine tahini, maple syrup, applesauce, and milk. Mix well. Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stir just until combined. Fold in diced apples and dates.
Scoop the dough onto your lined baking sheet with a cookie scoop or scoop about 2 tablespoons per cookie. You should get about 18 cookies. gently flatten out the cookie dough using a piece of parchment paper and a glass or your hand. These will not flatten out on their own.
Bake for 15 minutes. Allow to cool on a cooling rack.
Store in an airtight container. I like to store mine in the fridge for to prolong their freshness. They should last about a week.
Cookies for breakfast?! Don't mind if I do!
These make a nice Autumn time treat. Have a couple with a cup of tea while cozied up under a blanket with a good book!
