"Date" Night Cookies

Date Night Cookies

Last night my fiancé and I were snuggling up on the couch to watch a movie. I decided that I really wanted a treat. We rarely make treats, so I went to the kitchen and started searching the pantry for ingredients. Since we had made Pecan Pie Bars for the book release party, I had some left-over dates and pecans. I decided those ingredients would be perfect to make into cookies!

These cookies are both dense and filling, which helps to not overeat. The dates and pecans act like tasty little surprises in the vanilla-y cookie base. They are still  soft in the middle when cooked which makes for a nice texture.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time:15 minutes
Serves: 18

1 ¾ cup almond flour
1 egg
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons coconut oil, room temperature
3 tablespoons coconut sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon sea salt
 cup dates, chopped
¼ cup chopped pecans

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, mix together the almond flour, honey, coconut oil, coconut sugar, egg, vanilla, baking soda, and sea salt. Stir until ingredients are completely combined. Then mix in the dates and pecans.

2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and scoop balls of dough (should make 18) onto the sheet. Press the dough down to ½- inch thick circles. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until slightly firm. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Pin It!


  1. "Date" night. I see what you did there. These look delicious! I picked up a package of medjool dates to bake with a week or so ago, but I just started the 21 DSD today, so it'll have to wait. I'm definitely going to bookmark this recipe so that I can make it when I'm done. Looks delicious!

  2. You don't give the quantity of Dates???

    1. 1/3 cup chopped dates....its probably about 6 whole dates.

  4. My coconut oil remained clumpy while I mixed, so next time I would probably melt it first. Also my dough was so so dry and crumbly it never would have formed balls, so I added about 1/3 cup of unsweetened apple sauce and they came together okay. I also accidentally doubled the dates and they were still good.

  5. Since you posted this last November, this has been my 'go to' recipe for something sweet, but quick to make. We love these. Well...sorta these. Instead of dates and nuts, I use about 1/3 cup of chocolate chips, so, they are my chocolate chip cookie recipe to go to. I don't make sweet treats often, but like you, every once in awhile you want a little something. There's only two of us, and the other of us is not Paleo, but he claims these are the best chocolate chip cookies ever. I've also made them with raisins and nuts, and will make them with dried cranberries...for others. I just enjoy chocolate too much to have a fruit in my cookie instead.

  6. texture was good, I added some small pieces of cut up dark chocolate 70% cocoa. Love them!
