  2. Mix together the oats, flours, baking soda, nutritional yeast, cinnamon and salt in abowl and set aside. Make sure you break up any clumps, using a whisk works well.
  3. Add the coconut butter, date paste, molasses, flax eggs and vanilla into a large bowl and using a stand or hand mixer, beat until mixed well.
  4. Using the paddle attachment on your stand mixer or a spoon, mix in dry ingredients putting in half first, then the rest. Mix until just combined. Add in raisins, macadamia nuts, and chocolate chips if using. Mix together well.
  5. Using a spoon or small ice cream scooper, drop balls of dough on parchment linedcookie sheets. Pat down flat with your fingers. You want them about 2 inches in diameter.
  6. Bake at 350 for 13-15 minutes or until they become golden brown at the edges. Cookies will harden a bit more as they cool.

NOTES

My date paste recipe may make a little over one cup, depending on how big your dates are. I use the whole thing in this cookie recipe. These also keep well in the freezer. I make a big batch to store and then take a few out each morning. They keep great!
