This 5-ingredient Bake recipe is the perfect solution for those chocolate chip cookie cravings.
Dates, almond flour, vanilla extract, sea salt, and chocolate chips are combined to create a really sweet, chocolatey dessert.
They’re also vegan, grain-free, and customizable! We’ll show you!
Start by pulsing pitted dates in a processor until the dates are broken up into smaller pieces. You can break them up with a spoon if they form a large ball.
Next, add the flour (or similar). We used a mixture of almond flour with desiccated Coconut.
You can customize it here! Play around with the combination of almond, coconut, desiccated or rolled oats, coconut flour, and desiccated/desiccated Coconut.
The flavor is then enhanced with vanilla and sea salt.
You can add chocolate to your cookies in the form of cacao nibs, chocolate chips made without dairy, or even chopped dairy-free dark chocolate.
- If your dates are very dry, soak them in warm water and drain.
- 1 cup Almond flour
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Sea salt is a healthy addition to any meal.
- Use 1/4 cup cacao nibs da, try-free chips, or chopped chocolate (use refined sugar-free chocolate like Hu Kitchen or Eating Evolved for these cookies to stay naturally sweetened).
- Add pitted dates to a processor and pulse until little bits are left, or a ball is formed. Use a spoon to break up the ball if it starts to make sure that all other ingredients can be blended.
- Add flour, coconut flakes (or other grains of your choice), vanilla, and sea salt, and pulse until combined. The dough should hold together when pressed with your fingers but not be so sticky as to stick easily to your hand. Add more dry ingredients if the dough is too sticky or wet. Blend in more dates if it is too dry. The texture will vary depending on the ingredients and freshness of the dates.
- The scoop is our favorite. Scoop about 1 1/2 Tbsp, roll into a small ball, and then gently flatten between your hands into a disc. Smooth out the edges using your fingers. Repeat this process until you have formed all the cookies.
- Add chocolate pieces, cacao nibs, or chocolate chips, and a second sprinkle of salt. Then enjoy! The leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to two weeks or the freezer for one month.
