Whole wheat cherry cookies


Here is the recipe for whole wheat cherry cookies. This recipe is inspired by Wegman’s recipe for whole wheat cherry cookies. My version is eggless and uses broken cashew too. Check it out!


  • 1 1/4 cup wheat flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup powdered almonds
  • 1/4 cup water
  •  1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup powdered flaxseed
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 cup dried cherries
  • 1 cup toasted cashew nuts
  • Mix the almonds with water to make a paste
  • Add the butter and sugar to the almond paste and mix well
  • Add the yogurt and vanilla essence to the mixture and blend well
  • Combine 1 cup flaxseed, flour, baking soda and baking powder and mix well
  • Add the dry ingredients – the flaxseed-flour mixture to the almond-butter-sugar-yogurt mixture gradually
  • Dry roast the cashew nuts and add them to the dough mixture
  • Fold in the dried cherries into the dough mixture
  • All the ingredients should be well combined to form a dough that has a pasty consistency
  • Drop one tbsp of dough onto un greased baking sheets
  • Bake for around 15 minutes until done – the centers will be soft and the edges very light brown
