Carolin from CaroKocht created a great cookies recipe with our delicious oranges from Greece, dates from Tunisia and chocolate from Togo! Using dates only as a sweetener, these cookies will have intense orange and tahini notes. Thanks to the oats they’re a great way to start you day, especially when you only have time to grab a quick bite. In the afternoon they go well with a cup of coffee or tea. Enjoy!
The cookies are sweetened with dates only. If you have a very sweet tooth you can add approx. 50g of maple syrup (or any sweetener you prefer) to the recipe. Recipe is vegan with a gluten-free option.
This recipe can also be made with other citrus fruits.
Ingredients (for about 16 cookies):
Mix the oats, flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
In a small bowl, mix flax seeds and water and set aside. Leave to thicken for at least 10 mins. The consistency should resemble that of a whisked egg.
Finely chop the dates. Mix with tahini, orange juice and zest, then add the flax seed mixture. Make sure everything is well combined.
Add your liquid ingredients to the large bowl with the dry ingredients and combine with a spatula. If your dough is too dry add a splash of water or oat milk. Finally fold in the chocolate.
Preheat your oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Using a tablespoon, separate some dough and shape into a ball with your hands. Put on your baking tray and press down shaping round cookies. Don’t worry about them spreading too much, they’ll remain their shape during baking.
Bake for approx. 15-20 mins at 180°C until the edges turn golden. Leave to cool, then store in an air-tight container.

Smallholders and local producers harvest and refine products of extraordinary quality worldwide. But for many of these producers there is no adequate or stable market. You can buy directly from these producers via the Access to Market Platform and help them to participate in the market. The principle behind this is crowd ordering – a new trade model whereby a number of consumers order a product together so as to achieve a minimum order quantity. We at gebana support the producers with our know-how, and organise the logistics.
Enable someone to make their first export with your order. Please note: Unexpected events often lead to delays, and you may find that the quality is not yet perfect. For this reason, your feedback is absolutely essential. The export experience and your feedback are important steps for the producers towards accessing the market. As a customer, you are witness to the whole process, playing your part in pioneering work.
You can order from these producers simply and directly. You receive your product as soon as the minimum order quantity has been reached and the products are ready. The risk for you is minimal, since the producers already have a product that is ready for market. This sales channel is beneficial to both the producers and the consumers, since it cuts out the middle man.
Be part of the development of supply chains and support innovation! Some of the ways you can do this include testing new products, giving feedback, or financially supporting the producers in their next steps. In doing so, you will be able to see for yourself how the products and supply chains develop.
This is where you can see all the completed projects on the Access to Market Platform at a glance. You can find out where products are now available from or whether the producers are still seeking a trade partner.
