A cookie specifically created for your baby, but that you can enjoy, too! Adapted from my Awesome Oat Cookies.
Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silpat.
Add water and 2 tbsp flax seeds to a medium bowl. Set aside for 5-10 minutes
Place apricots and dates in a bowl of hot water. Allow to soften until they are soft enough for your food processor to be able to handle them. (If your food processor is heavy duty enough to process hard fruits, you can skip this step.)
Place apricots and dates in a food processor. Process until they form a paste-like consistency with small bits remaining. Make sure there are no pieces big enough for your baby to choke on. Set aside.
In a large bowl, add dry ingredients and stir until combined.
Add wet ingredients to flax and water mixture, stir to combine.
Mix wet ingredients with dry ingredients until fully combined.
Add processed date and apricot mixture to bowl and stir until spread evenly throughout dough. You may have to use a little bit of muscle here!
Spoon heaping tablespoonfuls of dough onto prepared cookie sheet and bake for 12-14 minutes, or until golden brown on the bottom.
Allow to cool before serving. Cookies can be frozen for up to one month. For the best defrosted taste, heat in an oven or toaster oven at 350 F until thawed.

* A non-dairy milk will work fine
