Talk about a lot of fiber, a lot of omega 3s, and a lot of chewy deliciousness going on.

UTENSILS

You will need:

  • Small Saucepan
  • Spatula
  • 2 Bowls
  • Cupcake Baking Tray
  • Cupcake Paper Cups

You can find most of the ingredients listed below at Mint Basil Market.

CRUST INGREDIENTS

  • 2/3 Cup Gluten Free Oat Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Gluten Free Rolled Oats
  • Pinch of Pink Himalayan Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Cardamom
  • 2 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 2 tbsp Almond Butter
  • 1 tsp Maple Syrup or Honey

FILLING INGREDIENTS

  • 10 Mini Pitted Sticky Dates
  • 1/4 Cup Water

DIRECTIONS

Step 1

First, make your date filling, which requires just two ingredients – dates and water. Bring to a boil, and then let simmer for 7-8 minutes until the dates have softened. Towards the end of the cooking time, mash the dates with a fork which helps them absorb any remaining liquid.

Step 2

Get started on the crust by adding all your dry ingredients to a bowl and mixing well. Then in another bowl, add the almond butter, coconut oil, maple syrup, and mix well. Add the dry ingredients on top and mix again until they form a solid paste.

Step 3

Line your cupcake baking tray with paper cupcake cups and cover the base of each with the paste you just finished. Then, add some filling in the middle to taste and finally cover the top with the paste.

Step 4

Bake for 15 to 20 min at 180 degrees.

Take a generous bite and enjoy! If you tried this recipe or have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
