Maple Oatmeal Cookies with Chopped Dates and Sliced Almonds

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Oatmeal is my new favorite thing. Obviously, it’s warm, comforting, and satisfying for breakfast, but it’s also helping to ease some of my morning sickness queasiness during other times of the day.

Most mornings, I eat banana oatmeal with nut butter and, last week, I whipped up a batch of Maple Oatmeal Cookies, which also helped settle my stomach in the afternoon as well as in the evening after dinner. Eating just a couple of these cookies made me feel better and, boy, they were delicious. I can definitely see them sticking around as a favorite, go-to recipe long after Baby Haupert arrives!

Maple Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies are thick and chewy with a sweet maple flavor and plenty of wonderful texture throughout””rolled oats mixed with soft, gooey date chunks and delicate, crunchy sliced almonds. Mmm!

I loved this batch of cookies so much, I already want to make another. And I know you guys will love them too!

  1. Thx for sharing! They look delish

    You used to post your dinners for the week. Are you getting back to that at some point. I think they were pretty helpful..

    1. @kara: Yes! I ate oatmeal every morning after my first baby! I’m not sure if it was the oatmeal or just my super boobies, but I had TONS of milk 🙂

  2. Hey Tina,

    If I left out the sugar completely and/or possibly added in a bit of honey??? How do you think they would turn out? Obviously not as sweet, but edible? haha

  3. My mouth is watering. Wow! These cookies look absolutely incredible. I can’t wait to try these! I just need to get some dates. Thank you soooo much for sharing the recipe. 🙂 God bless you!

  4. Sounds good-actually sounds just like my morning oats-oats w/almond milk, cinnamon, sliced dates, almonds, coconut flakes and PB.

  5. Those cookies are very similar to some yummy ones I made for breakfast and snacks before Christmas! Mine were Honey-Maple Oatmeal Raisin. They are super quick and easy as well!
