Oatmeal Date Breakfast Cookies

You are not going to believe that these cookies are sugar free and healthy too! I made a batch last night and guess what? There's nothing left! Gone! 1 had the privilege of only tasting one cookie. The dates, raisins and maple syrup add to the sweetness of this cookie. Soft and chewy and just the right amount of spice. A perfect breakfast on the go or for an afternoon snack (if it lasts until the afternoon).

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, line baking sheet with parchment paper

1/4 cup      dates pitted and chopped
3 tbsp.       coconut oil
1                egg
1 tsp.         vanilla
3 tbsp.       maple syrup
1/2 cup      quinoa flour
1/3 cup      all purpose flour
1/4 cup      rolled oats
1/2 tsp.      each of baking powder and baking soda
1/2 tsp.      cinnamon
1/4 tsp.      each of nutmeg and sea salt
1/2 cup      raisins

In a bowl whisk together the flours, oats, baking powder, baking soda cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and raisins. In a food processor, puree dates, coconut oil, maple syrup, egg, and vanilla. add to flour mixture and stir until combined.

Drop by the tablespoon and keep approximately 3 inches apart.

Bake for about 12-15 minutes.  Let cool.

Yield: 18 cookies
