It’s summer snack time again!
It’s time for some delicious Oatmeal cookies with apples and dates and more added wholesome goodness, such as flax, pumpkin and sunflower seeds. The combination of all these quality ingredients gives them a soft, fruity and chewy taste with a little crunch! These are great to enjoy with a cup of coffee or tea or a glass of milk, and they are also quite filling.
Here is what you will need:
2 cups of all-purpose flour
1 tsp of baking powder
½ tsp of baking soda
1 tbs of pure vanilla extract
1½ cups of brown sugar
1½ cups of softened butter
2 cups of dried oats
1 cup of chopped pitted dates
1 organic red apple (unpeeled, sliced long and thin)
¼ cup of flax seeds
¼ cup of unsalted pumpkin seeds
Preheat oven to 370º Fahrenheit.
Stir all ingredients (except apple slices, dates and seeds) in large mixing bowl until mixture is softened.
Next, add the diced dates and seeds and stir until all ingredients are well mixed in.
Form a scoop of cookie dough into small balls and place on to greased baking pan.
Use one slice of apple to press and flatten into your cookie dough, leaving the apple slice sitting on the surface. Repeat for each cookie.
Bake cookies for 12 to 15 minutes.
Remove and cool for a few minutes and experience taste Nirvana!
