Chewy Cashew-Date Cookies

chewycookies

When your craving for something sweet gets the best of you try making these easy, TWC approved cookies.

Instead of flour this recipe and many flour-less desserts use dates to hold the mixture together. You can feel good about eating these cookies because dates provide us with dietary fiber, iron and potassium too.

The difference between these cookies and most of the bars I make is the ten-minute baking time. The result is chewier and more like a traditional cookie. This treat should satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth!

Take your time and savor your sweet…. Actually you don’t have a choice because they’re so chewy you can’t eat them fast!

Ingredients

1 1/4 cup soft dates

1 cup raw cashews (can substitute the last 1/4 cup with pecans for a sweeter cookie)

1 tablespoon cocoa powder

Pinch sea salt

Optional: 1 tablespoon ground chia seeds

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Combine all ingredients in the food processor.

Shape “dough” into small round balls, about 1″ and place on paper-lined cookie tray

Bake at 350° for 10 minutes.

Let cool completely before eating

Enjoy!
