I have one last summer dessert recipe to share with you all before I return from my cruise
Remember those Peanut Granola Bites I blogged about a couple weeks ago? I decided to try another version of these crispy bites with almond butter instead peanut for a lighter taste. I also added some more mix-ins, and rolled them into balls for a great crispy cookie.
White Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal Cookies
adapted from Peanut Butter Granola Bites
makes 10 cookies
1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1/4 cup ground flax seeds
3 Tbsp maple syrup
3 Tbsp almond butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp unsweetened applesauce
2 Tbsp toasted walnuts
2 Tbsp dried cherries chopped
2 Tbsp white chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 325. Mix the maple syrup and almond butter together (you may need to microwave it for 30 seconds in order to stir). Add the vanilla and applesauce. Combine the oats and flax seeds, add in the liquids. Mix in the walnuts, cherries, and chocolate chips. Roll the dough with your hands to form 1 inch balls. Place dough balls onto a oiled pan. Bake for 12 minutes.
