Total Time
30 Minutes
115g of unsalted butter, softened
150g of light brown sugar
1 egg
½ tsp of bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp of flaky sea salt
185g of wholemeal flour
50g of instant porridge
200g of dark chocolate (you can use chips or bars cut into chunks)
50g of pecans, roughly chopped
100g of dates, chopped & soaked in 2 tbsp of boiling water
Equipment Needed
Large mixing bowls
Stand mixer or electric hand whisk
Air fryer
Baking parchment
Step 1

Cream together the butter and light brown sugar, add the egg followed by the flour, oats, bicarbonate of soda and salt. Mix until large clumps start to appear.

Step 2

Mash the soaked dates roughly with a fork and then add to the dough along with the pecans and chopped dark chocolate, reserving a few chunks to place on top of your cookies.

Step 3

Bring the mixture together with your hands until a dough is formed, then divide the dough evenly into 6 portions (150g each). Roll each portion into a ball, flatten lightly and place 2 chunks of chocolate into the top of each one.

Step 4

Place the cookie portions in an airtight container and place in the freezer until you are ready to cook them.

Cooking Tips: If you want to bake one of the cookies straight away, preheat your air fryer to 180°C and cook on a circle of a parchment paper for 15-20 minutes depending on how well done you like your cookies. If you are baking one of the cookies from frozen, do not preheat the air fryer, place directly into the basket on parchment paper and cook for 20-25 minutes at 180°C, the cookie will defrost as the air fryer comes up to temperature. You can also bake these in the oven, preheated to 180°C (Fan) for 15-20 minutes, depending on how well done you like your cookies. If baking in the oven from frozen, preheat your oven to 160°C (Fan) and give the cookies an extra 5-8 minutes of cooking time, depending on how well done you like them.
