Inspiration: Carob Date-Nut Cookies by That’s One Tough Cookie.

Adjectives: chewy, light flavours, dense texture

Good companions: almond milk

Ingredients

1 cup rolled oats
1 2/3 cup pecans (I used walnuts)
1 1/3 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
7 tbsp. olive oil
2/3 cup agave nectar

1 cup pitted dates, soaked in hot water for a few minutes and chopped
1 cup carob chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Toast the oats and pecans/walnuts on a baking pan in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  3. Food process the flour and half of the oats until they are thoroughly combined and finely ground. Add half the toasted nuts to the food precessor and grind to a fine meal. Add the rest of the oats and nuts, as well as the cinnamon and nutmeg, and pulse once or twice, leaving some whole oats and chunks of nut.
  4. Mix the wet ingredients together before adding to the dry. Fold in the dates. Pulse in the food processor until quite smooth.
  5. Pour mixture into a mixing bowl. Manually mix in the carob chips; do not worry if they may melt due to the wamth of the batter.
  6. Drop tablespoons of the batter onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until browned around the edges.
