Eggless Oats, Coconut N Dates Cookies

I never tried adding dessicated coconuts while making cookies, for the first time i tried adding coconuts to my cookies..As usual i prepared this eggless cookies with quick cooking oats, and i prepared a thick paste with pitted dates which i soaked overnite in maple syrup and honey and finally grinded as thick dates paste which suits prefectly for making out the cookies with less sugar also i used sweetened apple sauce for eggs, i can also say that this cookies are vegan as i didnt used any dairy products to make out this cookies...These cookies suits very much for kids and adults since they are prepared with two tablespoon of canoila oil.. its such a fulfilling and fibre rich cookies, everyone at home liked much and the little ones at home had this nutritious cookies for breakfast with their hot chocolate...These gorgeous and healthy cookies were terribly crunchy coz of quick cooking oats , while the dessicated coconut i used turned out this cookies more delicious and the home made dates paste made these cookies more healthy...Needless to say that am sending this eggless and vegan cookies goes to Madhu's Low Fat Baking Event also sending to Lets go nut - Coconut guest hosted by Pj, event started by Aquadaze..

2cups Quick cooking oats
1/2cup Whole wheat flour
4tbsp Homemade dates paste
1/4cup Dessicated coconut
1tsp Baking powder
2pinch Baking soda
1/4cup Sweetened apple sauce
1tbsp Sugar
2tbsp Canola oil

Mix together the quick cooking oats, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda and sugar in a large bowl, make a well and add the apple sauce, homemade dates paste, dessicated coconut and oil..mix everything with ur finger until they turns as dough...Meanwhile preheat the oven at 350F..

Line a baking sheet over a baking tray...drop a scoop of the dough over the baking sheet, leave some space between the cookies...bake them for 25minutes..Let them cool for few minutes and enjoy muching these healthy cookies..

Homemade Dates Paste:
20nos Pitted Dates
1/2cup Maple syrup +honey

Soak the pitted dates with maple syrup and honey for atleast 8hours or overnite, grind them as fine paste and arrange them in an air tightened box or bottle, can use these paste for making out any bakes.... can also add few spoons while preparing juices with seasonal fruits...

This dates paste is really handy and healthy!

i just love your blog.Bookmarked many recipes...but yet to try.
Just wanna ask can i use rolled oats instead of quick cooking oats?
By using rolled oats will they turn out crunchy?
