The other day I was feeling a mid afternoon slump and decided I needed something sweet yet healthy to help me get through the afternoon. it was a particularly windy and rainy day and I thought that it may be a good idea to bake some cookies, something that I hadn’t done in a while, i mean there is nothing more comforting the the smell of freshly baked goods on a a miserable weather day! I decided to raid my cupboards and found some rolled oats and glace cherries amongst other ingredients and my idea to make some oat cherry cookies was born. The recipe is really simple and straightforward and you can knock these delicious treats up in no time at all.
1 Cup rolled oats
1 /2 Cup glace cherries (halved)
2 Chia Eggs (or flax egg replacement)
2 Tbsp Coconut nectar ( or sweetener of choice)
2 Tsp Ground cinnamon
1 Tsp Ground nutmeg
2 Tbsp Coconut oil / butter
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and line a baking tray with baking paper
In a bowl add all the dry ingredients followed by the coconut oil / butter
Make whole in the dry ingredients and add in the Chia eggs or egg replacer of choice
Mix all the ingredients thoroughly to form a a dough
With a spoon scoop a spoonful of mixture and place onto the pre lined baking tray
Flatten each scoop with the palm of your hand to form a cookie shape
Bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown
Allow to cool and enjoy with some delicious non dairy milk or a warm beverage.
