Sunday in the kitchen

G and I ran away from home this weekend. Left the kids behind and hit up the big city! So nice to have time away from home to reconnect, explore and eat exotic foods. But not before we got zombified at the Toronto Zombie Walk with friends! A little slow-paced...a lot creepy...but really good times for people watching!
What the heck do these autumn-inspired cookies have to do with zombies? Well, nothing, really! Just a little housewarming gift for our dear friend who has recently relocated to Toronto that I thought I would share with you! And they taste a whole heck of a lot better than brains! Although, looking at that pic below, one might not be able to tell the difference...but trust me, they really are super delish!
Flourless Apple Butter Bites
2 C oats
1 C roasted sunflower seeds
Grind the oats and seeds in a food processor and mix in:
1/4 C coconut oil melted
1/4 C honey, or your favourite liquid sweetener
2 tbsp ground flax seed mixed with 6 tbsp warm water 
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt - unless you use salted sunflower seeds
Form dough into bite-sized balls and press in centre. Fill centre with small spoonful of apple butter. Bake at 350F for about 10-12 minutes.
