Rating 3.95 stars - based on 20 review(s)

Ingredients

  • Dates - 1/2 cup (Medjool or fresh dates make this recipe much more delicious)
  • Desiccated Coconut - 1/2 cup
  • Oats - 1/2 cup (organic rolled oats are tastier and have better texture)
  • Almonds - 1/2 cup (you can use sesame seeds to be nut free, also very yummy with the dates)
  • Butter - 3 Tablespoons (Coconut Oil is great too and makes this dairy free / vegan)
  • Orange - Juice of a small Orange - some zest is optional

Instructions

  • Process 1/2 cup of each oats, coconut, dates and almonds in a food processor until a crumb like texture
  • Add cold butter and juice of a small orange and process further to combine
  • The dough will hold it's shape when formed together
  • Roll into a log, wrap in cling film and place in fridge to firm up
  • If you are pushed for time, simply roll into small balls and flatten onto a baking tray, no need to firm up in fridge (this is a little more fiddly, but looks lovely pressed with a fork)
  • Once the log is solid, you can easily slice cookies, about 3mm is good
  • Preheat oven to 170C
  • Place on baking paper on a cookie tray and bake in oven for about 20 minutes - remove when slightly brown
  • Cool on a wire rack to firm up
  • Store in an air tight container for 2 weeks - they won't last that long though!
  • Enjoy xoxSha

    Hi sha,

    It’s Kym eyres, Naomi’s friend from PLC. How are you? Absolutely love your website, I just made the cookies and my boys love them. I saw your parents at Jane Grieve’s wedding and they updated me on all you girls. Anyway, just wanted to tell you that I will be pinching your recipes on a regular basis!

    Love Kym xxxx

    Yet again a fabulous recipe, next time I think ill add some sesame along with the nuts. My only issue is that Emma loved it so much she was eating the dough faster than I could get it on the tray!! Thanks again

    Obsessed with this recipe, I make a batch every week! Took your suggestion of seasame seeds (me & almonds don’t go well together), and I use hazelnut meal instead of desiccated coconut (same deal as almonds). I also throw in chia, walnuts & currants (and a little more coconut oil coz the chia soaks up so much liquid).
    Huge fan of all your delicious recipes 🙂

    Hi, I’m trying to avoid dried fruits, is there anything I could use intead of dates? Bananas?

      Hi Eleanor. Non dried fruit would work but you may need to play with amounts of other ingredients and they wouldn’t last as long either. Thanks

        Hi

        I made these the other day and the finished (and cooled off) cookies were soft-ish. Are they supposed to be? I was expecting a “traditional” crispy/crumble cookie so just wonder if I did something wrong…

          Hi Emma, just cook for a little longer next time, the soft vs crumbly texture of these cookies will come down to cooking time, only a few more minutes will do it

    Hello, I made these tonight anf didn’t refrigerate them and they worked a treat. Whole family loved them including sweet tooth five year old and nearly three year old. I did use honey though, so strictly speaking, mine weren’t sugar-free. It was only a tablespoon. I didn’t have any oranges or juice. I would have used a bit of apple puree if I had some but I didn’t. Any other suggestions? (The honey did work beautifully).

    Hiya, looking for a recipe to bake as christmas gifts, how long do you think these cookies will last?

      Hi Michelle. Sorry for late reply. These last for close to a week, maybe store them on fridge too. Merry Christmas!

    Hi Sha,

    Love your site! Just a quick question: is it okay to use dried dates? Should i soak them to get some moisture back? Thx for helping us look after our precious ones x

      Hello Deb. Dried dates work well and no need to soak

  11. JJ

    I made these with sesame and lemon. Lovely and great for vegans as sesame are loaded with calcium.

    What are the balls covered in coconut?

    Hi I just wanted to say how amazing your sugar free cookies are. I’m trying to cut back on sugar but still have a really sweet tooth and these are just brilliant – so thank you! By the way – do you know roughly how many calories are in 1 medium sized cookie?

  14. Belinda Argent

    Could this mixture be rolled out and cut out into shapes then baked? Looking for healthy party food ideas! Thanks!!

    great recipe, I needed a sugar free recipe for my GF. I couldn’t eat it them myself which is a real shame because I am allergic to tyramine. But thanks for posting a great easy recipe with ingredients that I had in my kitchen. happy cooking.
