No Butter Spinach Berry Oatmeal Cookies for the Whole Family

I thought of this idea a few weeks ago, and finally decided to try coming up with a recipe yesterday. I wanted to bake a cookie that I could give to my toddler and not feel guilty after. This cookie is made without butter, and is jam packed with vitamins and antioxidants for you and your little one. The best part, it actually tastes good! My husband had 3 last night, and my little one was so excited when I told him we were going to have cookies for a snack! This is for little ones 12+ months who are ready for finger food.

Here's what you need (makes 12 to 16 cookies)
5 oz organic baby spinach puree (or you can use 1 Plum organic Spinach Peas and Pear baby food pouch)
1/4 + 1 tbsp cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups stoneground wheat flour
1 packet Trader Joe's organic Oats & Flax instant oatmeal (or 1/4 cup quick cooking oats and 1/4 cup flaxseed)
3/4 cup dried mixed berries (these come in a package at any grocery store. My blend had blueberries, cherries, plums, and cranberries)

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease cookie sheet (I used cooking spray). Mix veggie puree with sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract until well blended. Gradually stir in flour, oats and flax. Stir until smooth. Add dried berries and stir again. Spoon cookie dough onto cookie sheets. Place in oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Let cool and enjoy!
