Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a medium size mixing bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar and xylitol using a wooden spoon.
  3. Mix almond butter into the creamed butter and sugar mixture.
  4. Whisk 2 eggs in a small bowl and add the to the almond butter sugar mixture and mix until combined.
  5. Mix applesauce and vanilla (if using) into the almond butter sugar mixture until incorporated.
  6. In a separate medium sized bowl, mix oats, salt, baking soda, oat flour, almond flour and coconut flour.
  7. Add half of the dry mixture to half of the almond butter mixture and when fully incorporated add in the other half of the dry mixture and mix well.
  8. Mix in the chocolate chips and dried cherries.
  9. Using a tablespoon measure, scoop 1 tablespoon sized balls onto the cookie sheet. Flatten each to about 1/2 inch thick. The cookies spread somewhat, but if not flattened they will be in more of a mound form.
  10. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes and then remove from oven. Higher altitudes may require a longer cooking time. The should look softly browned around the edges but will look slightly uncooked in the middle when you take them out. It is important to leave them on the cookie sheet for several minutes to set up!!! I let mine set for 15-30 minutes. You will know when they are ready to remove from the sheet when they do not fall apart as you remove them (with a spatula) from the cookie sheet to a paper towel lined serving plate.
  11. Store cookies in a baggie lined with a paper towel to absorb moisture, otherwise the cookies could spoil or become inedible.
  12. These cookies are best eaten within 24-48 hours.
Recipe Notes

For all the warnings and special instructions, this cookie does taste very good. ¬†With each bite I am shocked that it doesn’t contain the typical cup of sugar that most cookie recipes call for.
