Method

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Mix 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed with 6 tablespoons water and set aside.
  2. Mix together the oats, flour, baking soda, nutritional yeast, cinnamon and salt, and set aside. Make sure you break up any clumps. A whisk should work well for this.
  3. Beat the coconut butter, date paste, molasses, flax eggs and vanilla in a large bowl using a stand or hand mixer.
  4. Using the paddle attachment on your stand mixer or a spoon, incoprorate dry ingredients one half at a time. Mix until just combined. Add in raisins, macadamia nuts, and chocolate chips if using. Mix together well.
  5. Using a spoon or small ice cream scooper, drop balls of dough on parchment lined cookie sheets. Pat down flat with your fingers. You want them about 2 inches in diameter.
  6. Bake at 350°F (180°C) for 13-15 minutes or until they become golden brown at the edges. Cookies will harden a bit more as they cool.

Notes

  • This date paste recipe may make a little over one cup, depending on the size of the dates.
  • These cookies also keep well in the freezer. Make a big batch, and enjoy at will!
