Coconut Date Drops (Healthy Mounds Cookies)

22 Nov

Mom and I have just been playing in the kitchen for most of the afternoon. This was one of my favorites– it’s healthy and so so sooooo delicious.  Literally tastes like the healthy version of a mounds. But no butter or sugar and just one tbsp of oil! Woohoo!


  • 12 dates, pitted
  • 1/2 c soy milk
  • 1/2 c quick oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 c coconut
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • Bunch of dark chocolate chips, so each drop has at least one chip
  • Preheat to 325
  • Put dates and soy milk in blender– blend until forms small chunks. Take out date mixture and put into bowl, add all the rest of ingredients. Mix thoroughly.
  • With wet hands, form 1 inch balls, flatten with back of a spoon.
  • Bake for 10-15 min, until more firm.
  • Eat and eat and eat.
