Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Combine the dates, pecans, water, banana, egg, butter, and vanilla extract in a bowl.

  • Whisk flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt together in a separate bowl. Add to the date mixture and stir until well combined.

  • Drop dough by tablespoonfuls about 1 inch apart onto the prepared baking sheet and flatten lightly with the palm of your hand.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cookies start to brown around the edges, being careful not to over-bake, for 11 to 13 minutes. Transfer cookies immediately to a wire rack to cool.

Cook's Note:

Cookies won't spread out much when baked, so you can place them fairly close together.
