Make homemade cookie butter with only three ingredients!

Date Cookie Butter

  • Author: Deanna Segrave-Daly
  • Yield: 1.5 cups 1x


Love cookie butter, but looking for a healthier recipe? Try this homemade cookie butter made with date paste.



  • 4 ounces vanilla or shortbread cookies
  • 2 tablespoons date paste (I used this recipe OR 1 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 1/23 tablespoons canola oil


  1. Break up the cookies and add to a food processor. Process until you have fine crumbs (you’ll need just under 1 cup of cookie crumbs.)
  2. Add in date butter (or maple syrup) and whip together.
  3. Slowly add oil, one tablespoon at a time, and process until you get to spreading consistency. (You may have to add a few teaspoons of water or one more cookie to make it either thinner or thicker.)
  4. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator for up to 10 days.
