Inspired from Trader Joe's Cherry Granola Cookies + Prune Cookies (that my mom had previously invented) + Mt. Rainer Power Bar recipe
We created a gluten free and dairy free cookie with natural ingredients and wholesome goodness. Are you ready for something delicious?
Recipe: Goody, Goody Plum Drop Cookies
A Gluten and Dairy Free cookie
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
1 Cup Pecans, finely chopped
1 Cup raw Cashews, finely chopped
½ cup dried cherries, slightly chopped
½ cup raisins, slightly chopped
1 Cup ground dried plums (prunes)
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
2 Tbs. coconut flour
½ tsp. salt
3/4 cup applesauce
1 Tbs. Coconut oil
⅔ cup brown rice syrup
½ cup sucanat or other cane sugar
1 ½ cups rolled oats
⅔ cup coconut
In a food processor chop pecans and cashews. Set aside. Slightly chop the cherries and raisins. Set aside. Grind dried plums.
To the plums add the baking powder, baking soda, salt, applesauce, coconut oil, brown rice syrup and sucanat. Mix together.
In a large bowl mix all the ingredients together. Drop by spoonful and sprayed or parchment lined baking sheets. Flatten each cookie slightly, using the bottom of a glass--dipping the glass in a bowl of water every once in a while. Bake for about 12 minutes. Cool on racks.

This 65 degree weather in Salt Lake City is making me swirl with excitement. I'm alive again. And I think this blog is too!
