Raw Maple Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies are a great substitute for regular oatmeal cookies which my husband loves. So it's amazing that he thinks these are better than the real thing! I give the credit to the real maple syrup and cinnamon which give them a deep rich flavor. They are truly fantastic!

10 Medjool dates, pitted
1 cup cashews
3/4 cup oat groats (steel cut oats), can use "old fashioned oats" for a chewier texture
1/4 cup Maple Syrup
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of Sea Salt

Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until a cohesive dough forms. Pinch off a spoonful of dough and form into a cookie shape. Continue with rest of dough. Place in an air tight container and freeze for one or two hours until cookies are firm. Cookies can be stored in freezer for several months.

*These will not freeze when kept in the freezer. Instead they stay nice and chewy.
