These Almond and Date Cookies take less than 30 minutes to make and are a healthier option to satisfy those sweet cravings. Roasted almond butter and sweet sticky dates balance these cookies and bring a lovely soft texture.
I chose to bake these into cookies, but you could roll them into balls and have them as is (remove the baking soda), like almond and date bliss balls, to make them even simpler. Adjust the amount of salt depending on if the almond butter or nut butter you choose is salted. I did not check the first time; it was unpleasant.
This is the first time I’ve used almond butter, which I loved, but usually, I’ve used tahini, which is also delicious. You can choose what spread you prefer. These Almond and Date Cookies are a healthier option for a super quick sweet treat. So simple to make and so delicious.
