Ingredients

  • Dates- 1/2 cup
  • Desiccated Coconut- 1/2 cup
  • Oats- 1/2 cup
  • 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)
  • Orange- Juice of a small Orange – some zest is optional

Instructions

  • Process the 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! :)
