Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line 2 baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Combine dates and peanut butter in a food processor; process on high in 15-second intervals, gradually adding almond milk while processing, until mixture is smooth. Add vanilla extract and mix well.

  • Mix oat flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl. Mix date mixture into flour mixture, adding more oat flour if needed, until dough holds together. Form dough into balls, 1 to 2 tablespoons each, and arrange on the prepared baking sheets. Press a fork into each dough ball, dipping fork in water after each press. Gently press a few raisins into each one.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges are just beginning to turn golden, 8 to 12 minutes. Cool completely before eating.

I think this is a very good recipe. Followed it exactly. I think next time I will add some dairy free chocolate chips. Great flavor, soft cookie Read More

Didn't add the dates or raisins to be 100% sugar-free (tones of sugar in dried fruit) but they turned out wonderful! Read More

Delicious and have a very nice texture! They get chewy the next day and have a yummy peanut butter flavor. Super easy to make as well. Thank you for this vegan recipe with no processed sugar! Read More

Don't know if I made them correctly but very hard to process. Only had a mini processor which may be the reason. Had trouble getting the blade to turn-had to add more almond milk. Very thick sticky dough and messy to clean up. Cookies turned out tasty but very soft. Read More

I don't normally rate things but this is awesome. It's really soft and the dates add the perfect amount of sweetness. Plus it's flavor packed with peanut butter which amazing too. Love it. Read More

These came out chewy (which I love) and were completely satisfying without added sugar. They were not overly sweet (which I also love) and make a super great cookie base. I have made them with almond butter for a milder flavor and added things to them. My little ones love them too! Read More

It was perfect and tasted just like the ones with sugar! I loved it and will definitely be making it again. Just like the popular tik tok cookies! Read More

These are really hard to blend, very sticky but I did the best I could. They taste good. When placing on baking sheet, don't put on a dark cookie sheet as the bottoms are very dark. Read More
