These double cookies are packed with chunks of dark chocolate, stuffed with a rich date caramel and then finished with a flakey sea salt. Deliciously soft chocolate vegan cookies made gluten-free and refined sugar-free.
Can we talk dates for a moment? I have an extensive love for date caramel so it was no surprise when I decided to stuff my vegan cookies with the sweet nectar of dates. Seriously, I’m obsessed with using dates to sweeten my goodies.
A few benefits of dates:
High in sugar [natural sugar guys!]
Good source of fiber…you know what that means!
Great source of energy!
Full of vitamins and minerals!
These cookies are the so soft and chewy; mostly because of the olive oil (I think). If you want to replace the olive oil with coconut oil that will work just fine and your cookies will still be very soft but keep in mind the dough will be very tough when removing it from the freezer. You will have to kneed the dough until soft again.
