cherry chia banana oat cookies
maybe i just need a cherry pitter, but right now, cherry season, i find it super messy to give my toddler cherries ;) strange, huh? i don't want her to have to navigate the pit, yet after cutting or biting off pieces to give her, there is juice everywhere. so... it's been cherry smoothies and cookies over here!
3/4 cup soaked almonds
1/4 cup mix of sprouted brown rice flour and coconut flour
1 cup shredded coconut
2 tb maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup fresh cherries (pitted please! hehe)
2 tb chia seeds
1/2 cup rolled oats (gf if you require)
preheat oven at 350 degrees. throw everything into the food processor and process until you are pleased :) i wanted the almonds to be super processed so i watched for that. i used a spoon to scoop out small parts of dough and flattened and sort of rounded them on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. i baked for about 10 minutes (until edges are golden brown) and then let them cool before storing them. they were a hit with the toddlers (and adults) who tried them! yay!
ps. this is the post that inspired this recipe.
