I HAVE A DATE WITH A COOKIE ?
Iv collaborated with @thedateproject and THE PINK TIN is the one for me.
Our beloved prophet pbuh used to say “A household that has dates does not feel hunger” Muslim ?
Leave the chocolates out this Ramadan’s. It’s the perfect gift for any lady in your life! Each time you purchase these fine Mejdool dates, which costs only £10, you will help provide bread, water, education & help towards restoring eyesight to the most needy around the world.
The benefits are enormous and it can literally be the meal for the day Subhanallah! This weekend I teamed up with my children to make American style GOOEY WARM & MOREISH cookies. Oh my I wish I doubled the batch they were gone gone gone and all because these dates taste like toffee. So moreish.
They are Jordanian dates and the tin is 1.2kg! There are other tins available and I’m definitely buying some for gifts this Ramadan so make sure you do too.
SO SO SO YUMMERS these date cookies.
If you have any allergies, or are health conscious or simply want a healthier version of this date cookie then I have made it easy for you with my substitution top tips :

1.BUTTER for COCONUT or ALMOND BUTTER
2.FLOUR for ALMOND FLOUR or COCONUT FLOUR
3.SKIP THE GLACIER CHERRIES - the dates are super sweet
4.SUGARS for DARK MUSCAVADO
5.CRUNCHY NUT CORNFLAKES for OATS
6.There are no eggs in this recipe so happy days
