Recipe developed by Mel, Thrive Wholesome Nutrition.


  • 1/2 cup smooth, runny peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup hazelnut butter (if you don't have hazelnut butter, you can use any nut butter or peanut butter again)
  • 1 cup Medjool dates, pitted
  • 3 tablespoons Rich Glen Orange Citrus Zest Infused Olive Oil
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 100g dark chocolate
  • Finely chopped hazelnuts for topping (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Line a tray with baking paper and set it aside.
  3. In a food processor, add the nut butters, dates, Rich Glen Orange Citrus Zest Olive Oil, and vanilla. Blend until smooth with no clumps.
  4. Add the egg and pulse until combined.
  5. Using about 1 tablespoon of dough for each, roll it into balls and place them on the lined baking tray.
  6. Using a fork, gently press down on each ball to flatten and create a crosshatch pattern on the top.
  7. Place the tray in the oven and bake for 9-10 minutes. Be careful not to overcook!
  8. Once they are cooked, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool completely.
  9. After the cookies have cooled completely, melt the dark chocolate in a double boiler or a microwave-safe bowl. Then, stir in 2 tablespoons of Rich Glen Orange Citrus Zest Olive Oil.
  10. Dip the cookies into the melted chocolate for a delectable finish.
