Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking polenta
  • 1/2 cup brown rice flour
  • 14 canned Bing or dried cherries

Directions

Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl combine coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla and salt. Add almond meal, polenta and brown rice flour, mixing well.

Drop tablespoon-sized portions of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, spaced 2-inches apart, as cookies will spread while baking. Place a cherry in the center of each cookie.

Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
