Ingredients

  • 8 dates
  • 1 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 Tbsp vegan butter or coconut oil
  • 4 Tbsp agave syrup
  • 3 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 Tbsp flaxseed
  • 1 Tbsp sea salt

Instructions

  • Soak the dates in water and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • While the dates are soaking, mix all of the liquid ingredients except for 1 tsp of vanilla in a food processor. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients.
  • Set the mixtures aside. In a blender, blend the dates until they are a creamy texture.
  • In a food processor, combine the previously set aside liquid and dry ingredients. Add 1/2 of the blended dates to the dough. Set the dough aside.
  • Take the other 1/2 of the blended dates and continue to blend with the extra 1 tsp of vanilla and about 5 Tbsp of water. Continue until a caramel sauce is created.
  • Roll the dough into about 30 cookies and flatten (they won't spread). Bake for about 10 minutes per cookie sheet.
  • Once cooled, drizzle each cookie with the caramel salt and top with a pinch of sea salt!
