Chewy Date, Coconut & Cacao Nib Cookies
- 150g rolled oats
- 75g desiccated coconut
- 50g The Coconut Company coconut sugar
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 4 tbsp coconut oil, melted
- 4 tbsp The Coconut Company coconut nectar
- 75g chopped dates
- 6 tbsp cacao nibs
Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C and grease and line a large baking sheet.
Place the oats, coconut, coconut sugar, baking powder, melted coconut oil and coconut nectar in your Ninja Kitchen Nutri Ninja and pulse a few times so the mixture comes together to form a slightly sticky mixture.
Stir in the dates and cacao nibs then divide into about 12-15, roll into balls and flatten with your hands on the baking sheet, making sure they are spread out.
Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden and expanded. They will still be soft but will firm up while they cool down. Leave on the sheet until completely cooled – they will be awesomely soft but crunchy on the outside, yum!
