Oatmeal Date Cookies (V/GF)

I can’t seem to stop making cookies lately. They’re so easy, versatile and never fail to satisfy!

These Oatmeal Date Cookies are the cookies of my dreams! They’re filled with chewy dates, bites of pecans, mini dark chocolate chips and warm notes of cinnamon.

The dates offer a really nice chewiness to these cookies as well as an almost caramel-like flavor. They go perfectly with the pecans!
