Delicious Date Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

Dried dates are an underappreciated ingredient in many homes. After all, who wants to eat dried fruit when chocolate, peanut butter, and frosting are available? However, dates are just as delicious as any other treat you can make, with an extra dash of nutrition. Combined with a healthy dose of oatmeal and fiber, these cookies are delicious to make on a Sunday afternoon to keep in the house throughout the week. You can choose to make them as more of a thumbprint cookie like I did or use the date filling as more of a topping. The best part of baking is getting to customize the recipe each time you make it.
