So, by now most of us are back into the swing of the new year and that means back to work and school, and with that comes packing lunch boxes.
These little cookies are the perfect treat to pack- with the fibre of oats, the healthy fats in the olive oil spread and natural goodness of dates they are a sweet little healthy something to munch on.
1¼ cups pitted dates, chopped
125g olive oil spread, melted
¾ cup brown sugar
1¼ cup self raising flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1½ cups rolled oats
Set oven to 180 degrees
Beat eggs in a small bowl
Add brown sugar, self-raising flour, vanilla, cinnamon and oats to a large bowl
Add egg and melted butter to the bowl, mix with a wooden spoon
Coat hands with extra flour and shape into approximately 12 small balls
Place onto baking trays lined with baking paper and bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown
