My sister and I love something sweet with our coffee in the morning. We created this recipe to make a wholesome breakfast. I generally double the batch and keep them in the freezer. They taste even better frozen (still soft!). Whole grains, fiber, and protein and no butter! Can it really be delicious? Yes! My kids can’t keep their fingers out of the batter. I decided to add it to Allrecipes because everyone keeps asking me for the recipe. Enjoy!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Pulse the walnuts in a food processor several times to chop; continue processing until the walnuts are ground into flour; transfer to a bowl. Mix in the rolled oats, whole wheat flour, flax meal, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon until thoroughly combined.
Combine the almond butter, canola oil, agave nectar, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla extract in the food processor and process a few seconds to blend the ingredients well; transfer the almond butter mixture to a large bowl and fold in the dried cherries and chocolate chips. Mix the walnut-oatmeal mixture into the almond butter mixture (dough will be very thick).
Scoop up heaping teaspoons of dough, and form into balls; lay the dough balls onto the prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart.
Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and flatten the cookies with a spatula. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes on the baking sheets before removing to finish cooling on wire racks.

The sweet hit from the fruit wakes me up and bring me energy to make on the morning. Sugar is more vilified as the evil of all disease, but sweetness is also loaded with fibre, which is great for your stomach system and make keep you feel full longer, and less likely grab a snack out of the street food before break .
Make fruit a morning habit is easy . Simply put the fruit in your fridge next to the sweet drink or on the bench next to your grain bowl , or move your coffee maker or tea kettle — about anywhere where you’ll see it. Before you eat the rest of your breakfast , eat your fruit. If you’re not usually a breakfast person.
