Three-Ingredient Date Biscuits Recipe — “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” Leonardo da Vinci

This quote elegantly describes just how we feel about this Three-Ingredient Date Biscuits recipe. Only three ingredients coming together in this crunchy on-the-outside, soft-on-the-inside, naturally sweetened biscuit. Even though the process is simple, there is nothing plain about the complex flavor of these date biscuits. Once Again Tahini is a versatile ingredient for baking and proves this quality in this recipe. The smooth texture in our tahini is a result of the lightly toasted sesame seeds milled to perfection.

Once Again Tahini is a nutrient dense food naturally extremely low in sugar—without any added sugar. A serving size of two tablespoons contains four grams of carbohydrates, of which three grams are fiber. Dates are the source of natural sweetness in this recipe, while the oats increase the fiber content and gives the texture of a biscuit. In this instance, we are using the word biscuit as the British most commonly use it. As defined by the Cambridge Dictionary, a biscuit is a hard, small, flat cake that is dry and sweet.

The recipe is simple, and we recommend not skipping the refrigeration of the dough before slicing. It is challenging to keep the dough from crumbling. Therefore, tightly wrap the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate or freeze for about 20 minutes before slicing.

Enjoy them with a cup of tea or a tall glass of milk! If you like this recipe and would like to make it later, just Pin or save it. We’d love to hear what you think in the Comments Section below, and feel free to rate the recipe using the stars under the photo in the recipe card, also found below.
