ingredients for flourless chocolate oatmeal cookies
  • Rolled oats: I use rolled oats, but any type is ok. If you use instant oats, you don’t have to pulse in a food processor as it’s already small pieces.
  • Dates: Remove seeds and top of dates. If they are dry, soak them in water for about 10 minutes to soften them. These add a chewy texture to the cookies.
  • Chocolate: I use couverture chocolate which brings a nice cacao flavor. You can also use your favorite chocolate bar. If you are a vegan, please use vegan chocolate.
  • Oil: I use raw sesame oil which doesn’t have smell and taste. You can use any flavorless oil.
  • Cacao powder: Add an extra cacao flavor. If you don’t have it, you can omit it.


All right, let’s make the cookies. Watch how to make in this video also!

  • Preheat oven: 180C/356F
  • Food processor: Put the dates and oats in a food processor and pulse until the dates get small pieces.
  • Melt chocolate: Boil water in a pan, place a bowl of chocolate in it, and melt it in a water bath.
  • Mix ingredients: Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix them.
  • Form: Put the mixture in a measuring spoon, press with a spatula to shape, and place on a silicone mat.
  • Bake: Place the silicone mat on a baking tray and bake for 15 minutes at 180C/356F. 



  • Equipment: Food processorSilicone baking matMeasuring spoon
  • Storage: Transfer to a container and store at room temperature for one week.
  • Substitute: I use raw sesame oil, but you can substitute it with coconut oil or other oil. I use couverture chocolate, but an ordinary chocolate bar is fine. If you don’t have cocoa powder, you can omit it. 
  • Step 4: A measuring spoon is just the right size, but you can use your own cookie cutter. The dough sticks to your hands, so it’s better to use a spatula to push it in.
  • A silicon mat makes cookies more crispy. 
  • If the dates are dry and hard, soak them in water for about 10 minutes to soften them before use.
