    All you need to make eggless Halloween cookies is any standard egg replacement. For this particular recipe for Spooky Eyeball Monster sheet cookies I used 1 cup of applesauce.

What if my dates are really dry and hard? 

As a lover of dried dates I’ve noticed something- when you buy pre pitted dates they tend to be much more dry than unpitted dates. You can by unpitted dates and remove the seed right before making this recipe for softer dates. The softer ones are much easier to blend and taste better. 

Otherwise you can soak your dates for an hour before making this this recipe for homemade no bake protein cookies. I love soaking them in almond milk but you can use any liquid. Then simply drain them and tap with a paper towel a little bit.

How do I store Them

If you your vegan cookies them out in the open they will get hard and stale. You want them to stay a bit sticky and chewy like a granola bar. That’s why you need to seal them in a container with a lid or a large zip lock bag. You can also wrap in plastic wrap. Either way store the plant based cookies in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or counter top for 3 days. Wrap them extra tight and store them in the freezer up to 3 month and allow to thaw naturally.
