  1. Preheat the oven to 350 °F (180 °C).

  2. In a bowl, combine the date puree, the applesauce and the egg.

  3. Add the baking soda, the baking powder, the zest of the orange and the salt. Wait for a light frothing to occur (just for fun), then mix well.

  4. Mix in the almond flour, the cocoa powder, the ground flaxseeds, the shredded coconut and the chocolate chips until combined.

  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat – otherwise, everything will stick.

  6. Drop spoonfuls of dough to create beautifully round energy cookies, and decorate as desired.

  7. Bake for the time indicated. Transfer the baked cookies to a cooling rack, and bask in their mouthwatering aroma. Do i need to remind you these cookies are exquisite?
