Forever Cookies

It's Saturday! Time for a break from school work and working from home. Today at our house, we are making one of our favorite cookie recipes. I love that this recipe is full of clean, healthy ingredients, and they are vegan so you can even eat the dough! Enjoy!

Food Babe's Forever Cookies

Prep time 10 mins Cook time 15 mins Total time 25 mins

  • 1 ripe banana cut into small pieces

  • 4 dates chopped

  • 4 prunes chopped

  • ¼ cup coconut oil melted

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 2 cups rolled oats

  • ⅔ cups of nut meal (I like almonds and pecans – I smash them into meal by hand using my rolling pin)

  • ½ cup of unsweetened coconut flakes

  • ½ tsp cinnamon

  • ½ tsp sea salt

  • 1 tsp aluminum free baking powder (if baking)

  • 7 ounces good dark chocolate chopped into pieces or chips or dried unsweetended cherries


  1. If Baking:

  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

  3. In a blender – Combine banana, dates, prunes, coconut oil and vanilla and blend until smooth

  4. In a large bowl combine all other ingredients and mix so all components are equally distributed

  5. Pour blender mixture into dry ingredients and stir until batter is moist and mixed well

  6. Place dough in fridge or freezer for at least 15 mins

  7. Scoop dough using an ice cream scooper onto a parchment lined baking sheet.

  8. Alternatively, you can refrigerate the dough for 30 mins to make it harder and easier to make uniform cookies

  9. Bake cookies at 350 degrees for 12-15 mins

  10. Cool cookies on a rack for at least 5 mins before consuming – otherwise they will fall apart

  11. If Dehydrating:

  12. Follow steps 2-5 above

  13. Place cookies on dehydrator sheets

  14. Dehydrate at 105 degrees for approximately 12 hours

  15. If Eating Completely Raw:

  16. Follow steps above to make the dough

  17. Place dough in a large zip lock bag and press to form into a wide log – you may need two bags

  18. Place in freezer and enjoy slices of the cookie dough anytime!

Notes Makes approximately 20 cookies or 36 small cookies (if using a small ice cream scooper)
