Almond oat and cherry cookies

INGREDIENTS (makes around 16 cookies)

100g ground almonds
100g jumbo oats
100g spelt flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 egg, lightly beaten
75g dried cherries


Pre-heat the oven to 180°C and line 2 baking sheets with parchment.

In a bowl add the ground almonds and oats.  Sift the flour and baking powder together and add to the almonds mixture.

In a separate bowl add the coconut oil, maple syrup and egg.  Add to the dry ingredients and combine until you have a sticky dough.  Add the cherries and mix well.

Divide the mixture into tablespoon-sized balls and place on baking trays and bake in oven until starting to brown, around 12 minutes.
