Date Drop Cookies

Woo! Just back from our tour in USA and had a sweet tooth but the cupboard was empty. So what do you do? Improvise! I had Ghee, almond flour, coconut sugar, gluten free oats, raw almonds and dates! These cookies were so chewy in the center, crunchy on the edges and just hit the spot with a cup of tea. I just love love love them. Hope they become a regular for you as they are DEFINITELY going to be a weekly treat in this house.

Instructions
  1. Heat your oven to 375 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with baking paper. Get your ingredients prepared and measured to mix.
  2. Toast your almonds while you get mixing!
  3. Place all the wet ingredients in a medium bowl and mix. I used a fork and blended until smooth then I add the chopped dates.
  4. In a small bowl whisk all the dry ingredients with a fork.
  5. Sprinkle in the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix well.
  6. I use a mellon scooper to make round mounds and place the mounds on the paper lined cookie sheet. Flatten the tops a bit!
  7. Bake for 10-12 minutes. The tops should be golden brown and a bit toasted.
  8. Cool for 5 minutes before you devour them...really they get a great crunch on the edge and so moist and chewy in the center!
Recipe Notes

Tip: I really suggest you use Ghee. Someone asked me if you could replace the Ghee with organic butter. I have not tried that YET, but have baked many cookies in my time and the Ghee just gives a better crunch and warm butter flavor. If you choose to use butter or another product, let me know how they turn out,
