I have a date. Do you?
A very yummy date. I like to eat dates.
Oh, am I frightening you?
I don’t mean human dates, silly! I mean those yummy little super sweeteners!
I’ve been experimenting with natural sweeteners lately. These raw cookies sure hit the spot!
Peanut Butter Date Cookies
gluten & dairy free
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup + 6 tbsp dates
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1. Grind up dates in your food processor first. When they become a paste, add the peanut butter + vanilla extract. The dough may seem a little crumbly, but if you squish the dough together it will become a ball.
2. Make little balls of dough and squish them down with your palm. Then, take a fork and make an indentation in the cookies with it, like on tradition peanut butter cookies. Add a chocolate chip on top to finish the thing off.
3. Pop in the freezer for 10 minutes until firm, then take out + enjoy!
