Ingredients
  • 1 3/4cup Oats, Old Fashioned Rolled(gluten-free, if preferred)
  • 1 1/2tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 1/2tsp Pure Vanilla Extract(or 1/2 tsp Vanilla Bean Powder)
  • 1cup Applesauce, Unsweetened
  • 1 1/2tsp Golden Flaxseed, milled(brown flax could be used but may alter taste)
  • 1/4cup Date Paste(No date paste on hand, no worries see Recipe Notes below)
  • 1/4 cup Dark Chocolate Chip Morsels, Unsweetened(Enjoy Life Brand of morsels can be used but are not sugar-free)
  • 1Tbsp Dark Chocolate Chip Morsels, Unsweetened(topping of each cooking, optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350º F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (not wax paper because cookies will stick).
  2.  Using a large mixing bowl add all of the ingredients except for the Chocolate Chip Morsels.  Stir the mixture until it well combined. (See recipe note below if there is no date paste on hand)
  3. Once the oat mixture is well combined, fold the unsweetened chocolate morsels into the mixture until well mixed. I used a unsweetend brand of morsels.  You may opt to use the Enjoy Life Brand which includes added sugar, but is dairy and nut free.
  4. Scoop ¼ cup mounds of cookie dough onto prepared cookie sheet.  Should be able to get 7-8 scoops.  Using a spatula or a spoon, shape the cookies and flatten to desired size (the cookies remain same size while cooking).  Optional:  Garnish the tops of the cookies with additional chocolate chip morsels.
  5. Place prepared cookies in preheated oven.  Bake for 25 minutes.  Using a spatula remove cookies and place onto a cooling rack and allow to cool for 5 minutes before indulging! 
Recipe Notes

NOTE:  The date paste recipe can be found on our website.  Or add 1/4 cup of non-sweetened plant-based milk and 6 very large pitted Medjool Dates to a high-speed blender along with the cinnamon, applesauce, extract, and flaxseed.  Blend until smooth, then add mixture to oat mixture.  Then proceed with the remaining recipe steps.
