Sticky date and vanilla cookies 

A delicious tea time treat, these cookies are rich in protein and perfect with a cup of tea!


  • 3 medjool dates
  • 1tblsp crushed walnuts
  • 1/4 cup. Coconut flour
  • 30g vanilla whey protein
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum
  • 1 tblsp milk

To make, firstly blend the dates and walnuts to break them down.

Add them to a bowl with the flour and protein powder. Next, add the egg and then the milk and xanthan gum.

Beat the mix to form a dough and then take a large heaped tablespoon out, roll into a bowl and flatten onto a lined baking tray.

Bake the cookies in the oven for 10-15mins (until top is hardened at 180’c.

Cool on a cooling rack after removing from the oven.


I decided to drizzle with a chocolate sauce (completely optional!):

  • 6 squares of dark chocolate melted in a Bain Mariee or in the microwave.

Drizzle on top your cookie stack!
