Preheat oven to 375° and line a large baking sheet or jelly roll pan with parchment paper.
Combine the flour, ground oats, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl, and stir to combine. Add the Earth Balance and cut in with your hands, a pastry mixer or a fork until the mixture becomes uniformly grainy.
Add the walnuts and dates and stir to combine. Finally, add the milk, orange zest, agave, maple syrup and vanilla, and knead into a soft dough.
Using a large table spoon, scoop out equal sized balls, placing each on the parchment and flattening into a disk. I get a baker’s dozen out of this recipe (13).
Bake 15-18 minutes until golden brown on the outside. Cool and eat!
To make flour: 1 cup whole wheat flour, 2 cups all-purpose flour, and 2 tbsp cornstarch for each cup of flour.
These freeze well! Micro briefly or take out to thaw about an hour in advance. You can toast them lightly once thawed if you like.
You can sub pecans for the walnuts if they’re more your speed. If you want to use all maple syrup or all agave, that’s cool too. I like these best served at room temp.
