Ingredients
  • 1 cup superfine almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup Deglet Noor Dates, soaked for 30 minutes, then drained
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil (coconut oil works too)
  • 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips (can use dark chocolate chips, but the cookies will be slightly less sweet)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. Place the drained dates in the bowl of a food processor and process until pureed. If you don't have a food processor, use a blender to puree the dates and then proceed with mixing the remaining ingredients in a bowl.

  3. Add the two flours, vanilla, oil and baking soda to the food processor and mix until the dough comes together.

  4. Remove the cookie dough to a bowl and mix in the chocolate chips.

  5. Divide the dough into 12 balls and flatten them between your fingers before placing on a parchment- or foil-lined baking sheet.

  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes. If you want softer, chewier cookies, get them out of the oven after 8-10 minutes. For more crunchy, darker cookies, cook a couple of minutes longer.
