The name says it all. These are healthy cookies which are firm to touch, then just melt in your mouth once you bite into them!
These cookies have NO sugar (say whaat!?) and are deliciously sweetened by pitted dates. These Melt-in-your-mouth Oaty Date Cookies (not so) dangerously addictive!!
The texture is kind of in between a melting moment and a digestive biscuit – so it is crumbly, melts in your mouth, with a light crunchy texture from the oats and walnuts – and also a little bit of chewiness from the dates.
These are really easy to roll into balls, so is a great one to get the kids to help with!
