3 ounces maple syrup
2 cups apple, grated on the large tooth, peel on (juice included!)
2/3 cup coarsely chopped almonds
2/3 cup fresh or frozen organic cranberries
Place 2 cups of oats in blender (2/3 at a time) cover and blend on highest speed to make oat flour, about 30 seconds. Sift through a strainer (optional, looks nicer in the end)
Put remaining 1 1/2 cup oat flour and rolled oats into a bowl. Add cinnamon and salt and mix well.
Put cashew butter in a bowl. With a spoon or wire whisk, incorporate maple syrup into butter A TEASPOON AT A TIME AT FIRST. Add to dry ingredients and mix well. Add grated apple (with juice) and mix using a mash and drag motion (to mix in clumps).Add cranberries and almonds and mix in. Pick up in spoonfuls and press dough firmly in slightly cupped palm of hand with spoon. Sprinkle a plate with oat flour and drop dough into it. If dough falls apart or sticks to palm, add some flour to the dough, about a tablespoon at a time. Shape cookie firmly pressing sides and top to preferred size and almost 3/8 inch thick. Dehydrating time depends on size and thickness of cookie and desired crunchiness or chewiness; somewhere between 5 and 12 hours.

So anyway what do you think? I’d love to try these . I just had to make a blog post so that I can remember the recipe quicker :p
