Three Ingredients Date-Tahini Cookies

This recipe combines dates, tahini, and oatmeal all in one! All you need to do is throw everything into a food processor. It can’t be easier than that. These cookies have a soft and dense texture and are more like energy bars than cookies. They get a bit browned on the outside, but the inside will be very thick and chewy.
