Oat and Date Cookies

I saw a post on Buzzfeed that read something along the lines of “20 treats to make with all your leftover dates from Ramadan” and that inspired me to share my beloved oat and date cookie recipe. It’s super easy and gives you chewy sweetness in one bite.

Oat and Date Cookies
Makes about 25 small cookies
Ingredients
1 1/2 cups  flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, cut up
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup coarsely chopped mejdool dates

Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs, and sticks together when molded into hands. Add the egg, beating until just blended. Mix in the sugar, oats, and dates. Drop tablespoons of the dough 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. This dough should be very firm.
Bake until lightly browned, 12-15 minutes, at 350 degrees. Cool on the sheets until the cookies firm slightly. Enjoy slightly warm or at room temperature!
