Recipe as follows→
Ingredients:
•1-1/2 cups flour (I used spelt) be scant on last 1/2 cup
•1/2 cup unsweetened cocao powder
•1/4 teaspoon salt
•1/4 teaspoon baking powder
•1/4 teaspoon baking soda
•1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
•1/2 heaping cup coconut oil
•3/4 cup raw sugar (Xylitol)
•1 egg
•1 teaspoon vanilla extract
•24 Fresh Cherries (can use maraschino)
> Chocolate sauce:
•3 oz. Organic chocolate chips
•1/4 cup full fat coconut milk 

Directions:
▶Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a bowl stir together flour, cocao powder, salt, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon. In a large mixing bowl, cream coconut oil and sugar, add egg and vanilla and beat well. Gradually add flour mixture and beat until blended. The mixture will be rather dry but firm enough to shape them. Shape appx. 24 1Tbsp balls and press thumb into center to create cavity. Bake in preheated oven for 10-12 minutes then let cool completely (may need to recreate center cavity if it rises and If you use maraschino cherries you can bake them with the cookies).Prepare the chocolate sauce in a small saucepan, heat coconut milk and chocolate until melted and combined. Spoon some chocolate into the thumbprint of each cookie, top with cherry and drizzle more chocolate sauce. Place in fridge to harden. Best stored in fridge a keeps up to a week.
Yields 24 cookies. Enjoy!
