Tips & Tricks

MAKE AHEAD: If you’re not going to bake the cookies right away, you can make the dough and refrigerate for up to 2 days. When ready to use, soften at room temp. for a few minutes. 
OATS: Ensure that your oats are certified GF (Gluten-Free). I used Thick Rolled Oats, but you can also use Old Fashion if preferred.
MILK: You can use any non-dairy milk for this recipe. I love using Califia Farm’s Oats + Roasted Almonds Milk or So Delicious Dairy-Free’s Almond Milk, however, you can use Soy, regular Almond, Macadamia, Coconut, etc.
OAT FLOUR: If you don’t have oat flour available, simply finely grind the same amount of oats in a food processor until it resembles flour.
APPLESAUCE: If you don’t want to use applesauce, feel free to substitute with ONE mashed banana.
SWEETENER: You can always use agave syrup, Vegan honey, or date syrup, maple syrup as a substitute for date nectar. For vegan honey—-Bee Free Honee, click link.
STORAGE: Once properly stored in an air-tight container, cookies last for a few days (2-3 days) at room temperature.
