I am on a creative roll these last few days, and so if I'm not watching the latest installment of The Bachelor I can be found in some sort of artistic play.
This evening, it was me, my Blendtec and some fresh ideas to get nutritious food into my kids! I have tried almost everything to make nutritious cookies to no avail... until now!
Tonight's creation (which is kid approved!) is a delectable vegan (not intentional but turned out this way!) nut & seed butter, oat, chocolate chip cookie with sour cherries! These are definitely not your mother's cookies! But they certainly capture the feeling and taste of your childhood cookies... only chalkful o' goodness... and did I say vegan!
I will have to come up with some catchy name to capture all the goodness that is these cookies.... maybe I just did!
Not your Momma's Cookies!

1/4 cup coconut sugar
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Backing Powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup sour cherries chopped

Nut & Seed Butter
1/4 cup Peanuts
1/4 cup Cashews
1/4 cup Almonds
