For today’s recipe, make sure to have your dates ready.

Two packages of Medjool Dates

Lots of medjools for lots of balls.

Medjool Dates are always needed and will never go to waste in this house!

Today we made raw flax cookies with coconut oil and with maple syrup, being that I already had the maple syrup out and all, from making the salad dressing, of course.

No-Bake 3-Ingredient Vegan Flaxseed Cookies

1 cup flax seeds, ground

1/4 cup maple syrup

2 tablespoons coconut oil

Grind flax seeds in a Vita-Mix, high speed blender, or food processor. Add maple and coconut oil and blend until a dough forms. If necessary, adjust ratio of dry and wet ingredients until you can form balls, bars, cookies, or any shape desired. Serve immediately. Store extra cookies in an airtight container in the refrigerator or at room temperature for up to 5 days.


A visual guide:

Take 1 c flax seeds and Grind

I used toasted flax which will gave the cookies a slight peanut buttery flavor, even though there’s no actual PB in here.

Drizzle with syrup or agave, garnish with raisins!
Other options include: garnishing with nuts, fresh or dried fruit, chocolate or carob chips, nut butter, raw vegan cashew cream, add a tsp of vanilla extract to the batch, you name it, go for it…

And if you make a double-batch, they wrap up realllly well for out-n-about snacks.  Enjoy!

These are a 3 Ingredient, 5-Minute, high Raw, No-Bake Wonder!  They’re healthy as cookies go, filled with good fats, filling yet light, not too sweet but sweet enough…I really enjoy them!

  1. grind seeds in a coffee grinder
    i have an extra one for seeds
    then mix in a bowl
    use your hands if necessary

  2. I made this in my vitamix and the ingredients didn’t seem to be enough to make it work into a dough. The ground seeds just stuck in the corners with the syrup and my pusher couldn’t reach either. Any suggestions? They taste really yummy, though~

    1. All blenders are a bit different. Maybe doubling the recipe would help. Sometimes with a Vitamix, it’s necessary to have a little more just so the blade can ‘reach’ the ingredients and cut through them.
