No-bake vegan chocolate & date cookies

Have you always dreamt of craving chocolate cookies without feeling guilty? I have, and I know you have. And I also know this recipe is your dream come true. These cookies are amazing because you’ll have a batch of cookies in no time, (because they are raw, no-bake cookies), they are made of healthy ingredients and you can use the dough for other purposes too (crust for pie, for example). I have made this recipe many times now, and I like them best as cookies, but you can also put the dough in a tiny baking tin to make brownie tarts.
