Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
Combine ground almonds, dates, cherries, walnuts, chia seeds, bicarbonate of soda and sea salt in a large bowl; whisk to blend. Add coconut oil, egg, maple syrup and vanilla extract; blend well with a spoon or fork until dough comes together.
Scoop dough onto prepared baking trays with a small ice cream scoop or drop the mixture by spoonful onto the tray, leaving some space between each one.
Bake in the preheated oven until edges are golden, about 15 minutes. Turn off oven and let cookies sit with oven door closed, about 10 minutes more. Remove from oven and allow to cool before serving.
