These are cinnamon and date cookies easily made from a cake mix. They've got a good cinnamon flavor and the dates provide just the right amount of extra sweetness, without making the cookie super-sweet. Chopped walnuts can be added for that extra nutty flavor.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • Mix cinnamon cake mix, flavoring packet, dates, walnuts, egg white substitute, and olive oil together in a large bowl.

  • Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of cake mixture onto the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bottoms start to brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool on the baking sheet, about 10 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute 2 eggs for the 1/2 cup egg white substitute if desired.


Substitute vegetable oil for the olive oil if desired.


If you let the dough rest for 10 minutes, you will be able to form it into balls, which will give you perfectly round cookies that form small cracks when baked.
