Power Cookies

So I have started on a diet. The 17 Day Diet by Dr. Mike Moreno. It's been difficult, but it has changed my eating habits for the better. Now that I am on Cycle 2 of this diet, I found the recipe for Power Cookies. They are surprisingly very tasty. My 3 kiddos ages 4, 5, & 16 loved them too! Great to eat for breakfast or a little healthy snack!
 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
* 2 tablespoons almond paste
* 1 tablespoon flaxseed oil (I used Olive Oil)
* 10 packets of Truvia
* ¼ cup agave nectar
* 1 large egg
* ½ teaspoon vanilla
* ¾ cup whole wheat flour
* ½ teaspoon baking soda
* 1 teaspoon cinnamon
* ½ teaspoon salt
* ¼ teaspoon black pepper
* ½ cup vanilla whey powder
* 2 cups oats
* 1 cup dried cherries
* ½ cup sliced almonds

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Beat together applesauce, almond paste, flaxseed oil, Truvia and agave nectar. Beat in egg and vanilla. Mix well. Add flour, baking soda, cinnamon salt, pepper and whey powder. Beat thoroughly. Stir in oats, cherries and almonds. Mix well. Drop the batter by large tablespoons onto a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with vegetable cooking spray. Divide dough so that you have 18 cookies. Flatten each cookie with the back of the spoon. Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until brown. Remove from oven. Cool and store in a plastic container. Each cookie supplies 128 calories and can be enjoyed on the Activate, Achieve and Arrive Cycles for breakfast or as a snack. Each cookie counts as 1 protein and 1 natural starch.
