These are so easy to make and only 4 ingredients. These are cookies you can eat for breakfast as they are healthy and full of protein. No sugar and no flour.


  • 1 cup dates, pitted and soaked for 1 hour
  • 2 cups assorted nuts, pecans, walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts, etc.
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 4 tablespoons filtered water
  • unsweetened coconut flakes, optional for rolling


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°
  2. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Spread the assorted nuts onto the baking sheet, making as much of a single layer as possible.
  4. Toast the nuts for ten minutes.
  5. Remove the water from the dates and the dates to the bowl of a food processor.
  6. Add one cup of the nuts and pulse a few times.
  7. Add the pure vanilla extract and 2 tablespoons of the water.
  8. Pulse again until the ingredients are pulverized. Use a spatula to mix the ingredients around if large pieces get stuck under the blade.
  9. Add the remaining one cup of nuts and two tablespoons of water.
  10. Pulse again until a thick cookie-like dough forms.
  11. Roll the dough into balls slightly smaller than a golf ball.
  12. Line the balls on a plate and place in the fridge for 2 hours until the cookies set.
  13. Roll in the coconut flakes just before serving, if desired.
