Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies
Hearty dates and walnuts keep these no-bake, no-added-sugar bites out of bird food territory. These protein-packed cookies are also great afternoon or pre-workout snacks.
2 lg unpeeled carrots, coarsely chopped
1 c pitted dates
1 c walnuts
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
½ tsp salt
1 c rolled oats
1. PLACE the carrots in a food processor and process until finely chopped.
2. ADD the dates, walnuts, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt. Process until dates and walnuts are finely chopped and the mixture holds together when formed into a ball, about 30 seconds.
3. TRANSFER mixture to a large bowl. Fold in the oats.
4. ROLL mixture into 16 equal-sized balls (about 2 Tbsp each) and gently flatten. Serve or refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
