These 3-Ingredient Healthy Chewy Oat And Date Cookies are perfectly sweet with hints of caramel, thanks to the natural sweetness from the dates. Best of all you only need 3 ingredients to make them. Get yourself some oats, dates, and tahini and make these cookies asap!
Dates are the perfect guilt-free natural sweetener because along with the sweet, caramel flavor they add to recipes, they’re also full of fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.
Now, yes, dates are very high in sugar so try to keep that love somewhat contained.
If you’re looking for a sweet treat though, you’re much better off reaching for a few dates over-processed candy or a traditional chocolate bar. Along with all that sugar, which makes dates a fantastic pre-workout or intra-workout snack, you’ll also be enjoying the many health benefits dates have to offer.
Oats are another favourite of mine! Their health benefits are enormous!
From filling you with energy, protein, and fibre, keeping your heart healthy and helping you lose weight, what more can you ask for!

Tahini is a healthy fat you want to include in your diet! Tahini is basically a sesame seed paste. We all know how good sesame seeds are for us!
They are a good source of fibre, a good source of B Vitamins, and they help you reduce inflammation!
Now, to make these delicious cookies, all you need to do is blend together all the ingredients, which should form a dough. Shape your cookies and bake for about 15 minutes and that’s it!
All that’s left now, is to boil the kettle and make yourself a cup of tea.
