You will need:

  • 2 cups gluten-free rolled oats
  • 12 soft Medjool dates
  • 1 chia or flax egg (1 tablespoon ground chia or flax seeds + 3 tablespoons water)
  • 1 cup melted dark chocolate
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut, plus extra for rolling the cookies
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp salt


1. Preheat the oven to 350F and prepare your baking tray by greasing it with some organic oil or lining it with reusable parchment paper.

2. Add all the ingredients into a food processor and blend until it clumps into a ball. Roll into little balls of dough.

3. Roll the balls in a bowl of shredded coconut before placing them on the baking tray.

4. Bake for 12 – 15 minutes or until the coconut turns golden. Leave to cool for around 10 mins before removing and placing on a cooling rack. They can either be served immediately or stored in the refrigerator in a closed container for about a week. They also freeze well.
