• 2.5 tsp mint matcha
• 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
• 135g oats, blitzed into a flour
• 10 dates, soaked
• 30g dark chocolate, chopped
• A pinch of salt
• 2 tbsp maple syrup
• 20ml oat milk

Firstly, preheat the oven to 180c and soak the dates in boiling water for 10 minutes before draining in order to soften them.

In a food processor (or blender) mix all the ingredients apart from the chocolate to form a sticky dough.

Line a baking tray with parchment paper and scoop 9 equal portions onto the paper. Take the chocolate chips (or chopped chocolate chunks) and press several into the surface of each cookie. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool before tucking in. Enjoy! 🍪
