Chocolate Date Cookies

You need these for your chocolate fix. I love good rich chocolate flavours and these are so light and airy, for being gluten free.

If you prefer them a little more sweet you could add some chocolate icing to the tops of them. I prefer them less sweet and with the combination of the chocolate and the dates I love it. Hopefully I don’t eat them all at once.

  1. How much water do you use with the flax and yogurt?

    The picture shows the chocolate being melted, but the directions do not list melting as a step. Only indicate putting dates and chocolate in a blender. Also do you add the cocoa with the flour or is this also going in the blender?
