Peanut And Date Cookies

Do you like your sweet treats?

I do enjoy eating biscuits and when you make your own you know exactly what has gone in them.

This recipe makes around 24 cookies depending how big you make them.


100g dried dates chopped into small pieces

100g smooth peanut butter

100g butter

150g soft brown sugar

1/2 tsp baking powder

50g plain flour

2 eggs

150g oats


Preheat the oven to 200 / gas 6 and line 2 baking trays with baking parchment.

In a large bowl add the peanut butter, sugar and butter and mix until really smooth.

Add the 2 eggs and again mix until smooth.

Fold in the oats, flour and baking powder and mix until it starts to form a dough.

Finally add the dates and mix again.

Spoon even dollops of the mixture onto the baking trays. Leave a gap between each one.

Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes until golden brown and set around the edges.

Leave on the baking trays to cool before serving.
