BSI: Cherries Entry May 9, 2009

I hope this isn’t too late to be entered into this week’s BSI over at Simply Fabulous Now.  Leah might have to deduct points though for my being a bad student and not paying close enough attention to due dates ;_;

So this exclusive BSI entry must be a quick one.  The recipe of choice is Cherry Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies.  I based a recipe off of one I’ve been using for a while for fairly healthy cookies.  Ive made them as trail mix cookies, chocolate candy cane, and now a super tasty chocolate cherry combination.


The recipe for 12 cookies:

  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup wheat bran
  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • 25 g dried cherries (3 T?), chopped
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 2 T cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 3 T agave nectar (I’ve also used honey in the past)
  • 2 T water

And the directions are the standard mix wet, mix dry, mix together, make into cookie shapes on pan (they don’t spread), and bake for ~15 minutes at 325.  The batter will be quite wet, but it ends up with nice soft cookies so it’s alright.

Friends and roomie approved for all incarnations 🙂


Come back later for more new food, and awesome baked (but not by me) goods.
