Cherry, Walnut, & Dark Chocolate Bites
1 1/2 Cups Mama’s All Purpose Almond Flour
1/2 Cup Gluten Free Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 teaspoon Xanthan Gum
4 Tablespoons Dairy Free Butter
1/2 Cup Packed Dark Brown Sugar
1 Large Egg
1/4 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce
1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1/2 Cup Walnut Halves, crumbled
1/2 Cup Dried Cherries
1/2 Cup Dairy Free Dark Belgian Chocolate
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Combine all of the dry ingredients (minus the nuts, cherries, & chocolate) in a medium bowl and whisk together. In a mixer, beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add the egg, applesauce, and vanilla, mix thoroughly.
Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet mixing on stir setting until just moistened. Add the nuts, cherries, and chocolate and mix on low until thoroughly combined.
Place by heaping teaspoons onto baking sheets and bake for about 12-15 minutes depending on your oven. I use convection.
