Cherry Almond Brownies

Yields16 Servings

Ingredients
 1 ½ cups gluten free oat flour
 1 cup fresh or frozen cherries, pitted
 ½ cup dried cherries, unsweetened (optional)
 ½ cup dark chocolate chips (look for stevia-sweetened if possible; I used Lily's Dark Chocolate Baking Chips)
 ½ cup cacao powder
 2 eggs
 ½ cup maple syrup
 ½ cup coconut oil, melted
 2 tbsp plant-based milk (I used almond)
 1 tsp vanilla extract
 1 tsp almond extract
 ½ tsp baking powder
 1 tsp cinnamon
 ¼ tsp salt
 slivered almonds and more chocolate chips to top
Directions
1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray an 8 x 8 inch baking sheet with non-stick spray (I used coconut oil spray) or line with parchment paper.

2

Add oat flour, cacao powder, baking powder, cinnamon and salt to a bowl, and mix.

3

In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, maple syrup, coconut oil, milk, vanilla extract and almond extract.

4

Pour the dry ingredients into the wet, and mix to combine completely.

5

Fold in the chocolate chips, fresh and dried cherries.

6

Pour batter into your baking dish, smoothing into an even layer.

7

Bake for 25 minutes.

8

Remove from the oven, and allow to cool completely before cutting - they will continue to set up as they cool!

9

Slice into 9 or 16 squares.

Enjoy!
