At first glance, these oatmeal date cookies may seem like the ideal dessert to complete a meal. However, with or without the orange glaze, they can also be part of a breakfast along with Greek yogurt and a fresh fruit. Caution! It is impossible to resist these bites of delight any time of the day!
Let’s talk flavours: the sweet and rich taste of dates goes perfectly well with the floral notes of oranges. These chewy date cookies are therefore a real pleasure to eat!
Whole wheat flour
Large oat flakes
Orange (juice and zest)
Dates, pitted and finely chopped
Pecans, coarsely chopped
Preheat the oven to 150 °C (300 °F). Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
In a bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients. Set aside.
In another bowl, mix the canola oil with the brown sugar. Then, add the eggs one at a time. Add the orange zest and juice and the vanilla extract.
Incorporate the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Add the dates and pecans. Mix with a wooden spoon or spatula.
Using an ice cream scoop of about 22.5 ml (1.5 tablespoon), make dough balls. Lightly press the cookies with your hands.
Finally, bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until the cookies are golden. Let cool on a wire rack. Repeat the same steps for the remaining cookie dough.
Mix the icing sugar with the orange juice. Once the oatmeal date cookies are cold, ice them with the orange preparation.
Most homemade bakery products can be frozen. However, there are a few exceptions, such as glazed goods with a frosting, products containing egg whites, and fine pastries. These oatmeal date cookies can be kept in the freezer in a sealed container without the orange glaze. This way, when guests show up unannounced, you can thaw your cookies 30 minutes before glazing them.
