I like cookies with a lot of stuff in them. These have naturally sweetened chocolate chips, naturally sweetened peanut butter chips, raisins and nuts.
Here I am creaming the butter, honey, eggs and raisin or date puree together.
With the remaining ingredients added.
The finished product. No–there aren’t any left:(
Chocolate Chip Date Cookies
¾ cup dates
½ cup + 2 tbsp water
1½ stick butter
½ + 2 tbsp cup raw honey
2 tsp baking soda
½ tsp sea salt
3½ cups fresh-ground whole wheat flour
1½ cups naturally sweetened chocolate chips
In a blender or food processor puree dates with water. It’s okay if they are a little chunky. Pour the dates into a mixing bowl with the butter, honey and eggs. Mix until creamy. Stir in 1 cup flour with the baking soda and salt. Mix well. Add remaining flour and chocolate chips and mix just until blended. Bake in a pre-heated 375°F oven for 8 minutes, or until lightly browned.
*The recipe calls for dates, you can use either dates or raisins.
**I divided the naturally sweetened chocolate chips, naturally sweetened peanut butter chips, raisins and nuts to equal the original 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips in the recipe.
