CHERRY OATMEAL COOKIES
PREP TIME: 20 minutes
COOK TIME: 14 minutes
YIELD: 24 cookies
3/4 C rolled oats
1 1/2 C oat flour *
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 C sugar
1/3 C packed brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 C dried cherries
2 large eggs
1 tsp almond extract
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 C canola oil
* I didn’t have oat flour, so I took 2 C rolled oats and ground them in the food processor for about 30 seconds. In general, 1 C rolled oats produces 3/4 C oat flour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients and mix.
In a smaller bowl, combine eggs, extracts, and oil. Beat lightly until well mixed.
Combine the wet ingredients to the dry, and mix.
Using a 1 tablespoon measuring spoon, drop cookie mixture onto parchment lined cookie sheets.
Place one cookie sheet in the oven at a time. Bake for 14 minutes.
Let cool for 5 minutes, and enjoy!
