Soft and fudgy date chocolate cookies with a layer of peanut butter honey icing and dipped in chocolate. Cookie heaven!




  • 1 cup raw pecan halves
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup pitted Medjool dates (about 15 dates)
  • 1/3 cup cocoa
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons nut or seed butter
  • 2 tablespoons water

Peanut Butter Icing

  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons raw honey

For Dipping

  • 100 grams dark chocolate, chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F and line two large, rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a food processor fitted with the ‘S’ blade, grind the pecans, oats, and coconut into a meal. Add the remaining ingredients and process until a sticky dough forms. Transfer into a bowl for easier scooping.
  3. Wet your hands and roll the dough into 18 balls, placing them a couple inches apart on the baking sheets.
  4. Flatten by hand or use a fork to make a cross-hatch pattern. Bake for 10 minutes. Wait a few minutes before transferring the cookies onto a wire rack.
  5. Make the icing: Whisk together the peanut butter, butter, and honey in a bowl.
  6. Once the cookies are cool, spread the icing over the bottom of nine cookies and top with the remaining nine cookies to make a sandwich.
  7. Melt the chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat. Dip the cookie sandwiches into the chocolate and place on the wire rack to let the chocolate harden.
  8. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days.


There will be leftover peanut butter icing. Spread it on your toast or put it on your morning oatmeal. 🙂
