Cherry and Apple Pie Oatmeal Cookies

Well, I have been working on this recipe for a couple of days trying to perfect it!.... Coming up with a recipe that is gluten free and with low or no sugar can be quite difficult, the dried cherries and tart apples add some sweetness to these, you could also add chopped walnuts if you like! I used gluten free flour, but you could use regular in the same amount and omit the xanthum gum...Also if you are not worried about sugar you can use brown sugar instead of the honey.....Here is what I did....Enjoy!

1  1/2 cup quick oats
3/4 cup flour (I used gluten free)
1  1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1  1/2 teaspoon xanthum gum (if using gluten free flour)
2 eggs beaten
1 stick softened butter
2 Tablespoons coconut oil (melted)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup honey (or 1 cup packed brown sugar)
1 cup dry cherries
1 green apple (peeled and diced)
Preheat oven to 350
Add all of the dry ingredients to a bowl and whisk to mix
in another bowl add all of the wet ingredients and whisk together
Add the wet to the dry to incorporate together
then add the cherries and apples
Drop by spoonful onto lined cookie sheet and bake for about 12 minutes until golden
