Directions

  1. In a food processor, pulse together oats, dates and coconut until dates are broken up and mixture sticks together. Remove to a bowl and stir in pumpkin seeds, oil and orange rind until well combined.
  2. Using a heaping tablespoon (15 mL) roll into a ball and shape into a 2 inch (5 cm) by ½ inch (1 cm) thick round. Place onto parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  3. Bake in 325 °F (170 °F) oven for about 20 minutes or until golden and firm. Let cool before eating.

Tip: Store at room temperature to keep the cookies slightly crisp on the outside. For a chewier and soft cookie, refrigerate in a resealable bag or container.
