Cherry Oat Rounds

Each day of Farm Camp, the kids did a "farm chore" or worked in the fields of The Stone Barns Center, tended to the farm's livestock or collected eggs, went for a hike, explored the garden, and cooked something with their bounty. I was excited that the parents all got copies of the week's recipes since they're a good source of healthy, simple recipes you can do with your kids. Here is one that was my son's favorite.

Cherry Oat Rounds
(Recipe courtesy of Stone Barns Farm Camp)

2 cups oats
2/3 cup light brown sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ cup raisins

1 ½ cups low-fat vanilla yogurt
¼ cup canola oil
½ cup pitted and chopped cherries

Preheat oven to 375. In a small bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and raisins. Mix ingredients to completely combine. In a larger bowl, whisk together the yogurt and oil. Once combined, mix in the cherries. Finally, add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix to combine in a batter. Spray mini muffin cups with cooking spray and spoon about 1 Tablespoon of batter into each muffin cup. These will not rise too much, so it is fine if the batter comes to the top of the pan. Once they are all filled, put in oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the tops are golden and the rounds look set. Remove from oven and allow to cool in the pan for 10 more minutes. Flip out onto tray or rack and enjoy warm or cool.
