Oat, Date and Dark Chocolate Cookie Recipe

I've lost count of the weeks since I last posted, I have my reasons so please forgive me, with the end of second year at uni and deadlines followed by moving back home, I've not been able to give the time needed to create such mouth watering recipes. But better late than never! 

A pre weekend post this time, here are: 
Oat, Date and Dark Chocolate Cookies

They are the perfect cuppa parter! 

I have put in dark chocolate, however you could use milk chocolate if you prefer. The oats give it that added texture and 'oatiness' to every bite,whilst the dates give a fudgey like flavour and the chocolate, well... it's chocolate! 

As my blog name 'Fashionable Bake', I started out for it all to be on baking; cakes, biscuits, tarts, cupcakes etc. But I do enjoy to cook and I do a fair amount of it. I will start to post blogs and recipes for main meals, sides, savoury snacks etc. to add some variety to my blog!

  • 80g Dark muscovado sugar (or any brown sugar)
  • 120g Butter (room temp)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla extract
  • 100g Oats
  • 75g Wholemeal Flour
  • 100g Pitted dates (chopped)
  • 100g Dark chocolate (chopped or chocolate chips) 


  1. Preheat oven (fan) to 180 Degrees C.
  2. Line and grease 2 baking trays. (Enough for 15-18 cookies)
  3. Cream together the softened butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Whisk in the egg and vanilla until all the mix is combined.
  5. Add in the oats, weigh out the flour and sift in to the mix.
  6. Chop up your dates and chocolate (unless using chocolate chips) into whatever size you like. Add to the mix and stir until combined. 
  7. Using a metal tablespoon and teaspoon, spoon about a tablespoon onto your baking tray, allowing about 2 inches between each cookie. Once you have spooned all your mix onto your trays, with a fork press down the cookies as the oats hold structure so the cookies won't spread whilst cooking.
  8. Place cookies in the oven, after 5 minutes take out and press down again with a fork if needed. 
  9. Allow to bake for a total of 12-14 minutes until golden.
  10. When out of the oven, leave to cool on wire racks (or you could eat them whilst they're still warm and the chocolates still melted!)
