WHAT YOU NEED
These peanut butter dates cookies only require 5 simple ingredients:

  • Dates: Coachella's Best Medjool Dates
  • Peanut Butter: or any nut/seed butter of your choice
  • Almond Flour: you can use oat flour if you have it on hand
  • Egg : helps to bind ingredients together
  • Vanilla Extract : optional, but we highly recommend it


HOW TO MAKE PEANUT BUTTER DATES COOKIES
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

If your dates are dry, soak them in a bowl with warm water for about 10 minutes. Drain the water and lightly pat the dates dry to remove some of the moisture. You want them damp, just not soaking.

If your dates are already moist and slightly sticky, do not worry about soaking them.

Add all of the ingredients to a food processor and pulse for about 2 minutes, until the dates are in very tiny pieces and well mixed with the peanut butter.

The dough may look crumbly but it should be moist, soft and doughy when you squeeze it in your hands. The consistency of the dough should be soft and moist but not wet or sticky. If it seems dry at all, add some water to the mixture.

Use about 2 tbsp of dough per cookie. Squeeze the dough in your hands to help it stick together and then roll into balls. This should make about 12 balls. Flatten the dough balls halfway and make the classic peanut butter cookie grid mark with a fork.

Bake for about 9-10 minutes or when the bottoms of the cookies are slightly browned. Watch these closely as you don’t want them to over-bake or they wont be as soft and moist.

Cool for about 5-10 minutes before handling so they don’t crumble.

Microwave the ingredients for chocolate dip until the chocolate melts completely.

Dip the cooled cookies in the melted chocolate and top it with some roasted peanuts.

Store leftover covered on the counter. We noticed when we put these in the refrigerator, they dried out a bit.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup pitted medjool dates

  • 1 cup dark chocolate

NOTES
  1. Peanut Butter: The peanut butter needs to be runny/drippy. We recommend using a new jar (well mixed) or take a jar out of the fridge and let it sit for a bit so the peanut butter softens to a runny texture.
  2. Medjool dates: Make sure to use fresh, organic medjool dates such as Coachella's Best Medjool Dates and to only soak them if they are dried out.
