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.
