Fruit and Nut Cakies

On my drive home from work, I decided I wanted something sweet – but somewhat healthy. I started concocting the recipe in my head and couldn’t wait to get home and try it!! The end product is slightly more granola bar, than cookie and next time I make these I think I will bake them in a baking dish and cut them into bars once cooled. 🙂

1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup spelt flour
3 cups quick cooking oats
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup chopped almonds
1/3 cup hulled hemp seeds
1/3 cup rice milk + 2 cored apples with skin on; pureed in a strong blender until sauce consistency (or simply use 1 1/2 cups prepared applesauce)
1 cup dried blueberries
3/4 cup dried tart cherries

Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir gently to combine after each addition. After the apple mixture/applesauce is added, mix well until all the moisture is distributed evenly. Fold in blueberries and cherries.

For cookies bake at 350°F for 8 minutes. For bars, I would bake at 325°F for 15 minutes, watching closely during baking to not over cook. Cool on a wire rack. Tastes great with coffee, tea or any dairy-free milk!

Don't miss a thing!
