Finally...after years of licking spoons and testing cookies I have created the ultimate...the perfect...the most amazing...the 'Dream Cookie'.
I eat these for snacks, I eat these for breakfast, I eat these just cuz they are delicious and nutritious and just so darn tasty. Try them out for yourself and let me know what you think! They can be gluten and dairy free and I have included some suggestions for swaps in the recipe below. Enjoy!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
1/3 cup soft/melted coconut oil (put the bowl in your pre-heating oven)
Blend: (I use a magic bullet)
3/4 cup natural peanut butter (sub for any other nut or seed butter you like)
1/4 cup water (up to 1/3 if needed)
1 ripe banana
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 cup oat flour (I blend in the magic bullet before I use it for the wet ingredients)
3/4 cup oats
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup dried cherries (any dried fruit you like)
1/2 cup (or more!) dark chocolate chips or chunks.
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Combine everything together in a big mixing bowl, then drop by big tablespoons onto the cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes depending on your oven. Makes 24 tbs size cookies.
Pretty much perfect for a long run, hike or breakfast on the go! Good luck eating just one! I store mine in the freezer so I can't see them;)
