Kids can make a tasty nutrient dense snack with organic almond butter. Almond butter is rich in healthy fats, antioxidants, and protein. Oats have the highest percentage of protein and fiber of any grain. Organic dried cherries are rich in antioxidants, fight inflammations, and relieve stress. The cocoa bean is rich in fiber, carbohydrates, minerals, antioxidants, and flavonoids. This cookie is a powerhouse of fortifying energy.
Preheat the oven to 350°. In a large bowl, using a fork, cream 8 tbsp soft organic vegan butter and ½ cup organic cane sugar. Add 1 tsp organic maple syrup, and 1 tsp vanilla. Mix in 1 cup organic old fashioned rolled oats, 1 cup organic whole wheat pastry flour, 1 tsp arrowroot starch, ½ tsp baking soda, ¼ tsp baking powder, and 2 tbsp cacoa powder. Add ¼ cup organic dried cherries, ¼ cup organic chocolate chips, ½ tsp cinnamon, and ¼ tsp sea salt. Blend in ¼ cup organic almond butter and mix well with a fork.
Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and use a teaspoon to spoon on the cookies. Bake for 10 minutes and let cool ½ hour. Kids can freeze these cookies for energy boosters at any time.

Do you think it would work with coconut oil instead of vegan butter? Looks yummy!
Yes, it has a coconut sweeter taste!
