You will never guess these cookies are flourless with no added sugar!



  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Drain the dates in the water.
  3. In a small blender combine the dates, sea salt and 2 T new water and mix until a caramel starts to form. If you need to add a little extra water, that is okay.
  4. In a food processor , mix the cashew butter, vanilla and baking powder together.
  5. Add the caramel to the cashew butter mixture and pulse a few times.
  6. Lastly add the chocolate chips and pulse a few more times.
  7. Drop cookies onto a lined baking sheet . I used a cookie scoop and got 9 cookies.
  8. Bake for 9-10 minutes.
  9. Wait until the cookies are completely cooled before removing them from the baking sheet.
  10. Store cookies in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. You can also freeze them for longer.


Recipe Notes

**You can buy cashew butter at the store, but you can also make it yourself in a food processor or high powered blender. Just take 2 cups raw cashew pieces and blend them for 5 minutes. Feel free to use another nut butter or even sunflower butter in place of the cashew butter, but keep in mind it may alter the flavor slightly.

  1. Melissa, Great recipes, I'm obsessed with your site! Also thank you for being so patient with all the comments from the ones asking about the "caramel", the pain is real....:-)
  2. Perfect recipe, thanks so much for developing and sharing it! I have to ask though, how did your cookies end up being so "cookie" colored! My date caramel always ends up being almost red, so my cookies are mauve! Definitely using this combo next February
    1. Glad you liked them! When I added the dates, I only pulse a couple of times. I also use a cookie scoop for the shape. :)
  3. Hi...I tried looking back through all the comments but didn't see one that addressed my same question - I have some California pitted dates in my pantry...would it be a one for one swap for the 5 mejdool dates or would I use more of my pitted dates to get the same effect and flavor? Thanks!!! Looking to take 3 different flourless cookie recipes for a Christmas cookie exchange :)
    1. Hi Katie! Regular dates should work. Since they are smaller and not as soft, use a few extra. You should get the same caramel effect from them. :)
  4. Thank you for this recipe! They are sweet and satisfying, but not too sweet. I made a double batch of these cookies tonight, and my kids went crazy for them. My son offered me his tooth fairy money for one extra cookie! I don't have a cookie scoop, so I just used a tablespoon. Mine were smaller. I got over 3 dozen from the double batch.
  5. Just because you don't pour the sugar out of a bag, it's disingenuous to bill these as "no added sugar". Oh, I know that the dates are "natural sugar," but it still has an impact. And why do the chocolate chips taste so good? Hmmm...Could it be sugar?
    1. While I agree with you that dates do contain sugar, it is natural sugar and does not have the same effect on me that refined sugar does. You can use chocolate chips sweetened with stevia or cacao nibs. If you don't like the recipe, then you don't have to make it. :)
  6. These look amazing....We try to do nut based "flours" for our sweets and actually prefer them! (plus we feel better ;) I'm excited to try your recipes....thanks for making them accessible to the public :) Great pics too! Be well!
