  • Put all of the dry stuff together in one large bowl (oat flower, oats, baking powder, cinnamon) and mix it up.
  • Next comes the blender. Mix together all the dates, your nut butter of choice, vanilla extract, and 2 tablespoons of water into your blender and blend it up until it is nice and smooth.
  • Time to combine all wet and dry ingredients! Keep stirring until they make a nice cookie dough.
  • Once you have your dough, scoop it off by small spoonful and roll them into a ball. Gently push them down with your hands so they are flat. (These cookies will not flatten from baking, so make sure you press them down into the size you want.)
  • Bake for 13 minutes and then leave them resting on the pan for 5 minutes and you have yourself an awesomely healthy snack!
