Healthy Date and Nut Cookies

Cookies are always a kid's favorite. Cookies if made with healthy ingredients can be a super snack for your kids. Here my lil ones love to nibble on something or the other all the time. So am always in search of healthy and hearty snack recipes that I can make in large batches and store. This prevents me from depending on store bought sugar packed junks. Here this is one such recipe which is easy to make while packed with rich nutrients. And these are not just a kid favorite in our household we grownups too have a share.
I will be posting more recipes of this kind in future. You can find more kid friendly recipes here under the label Kid's corner.
