Easy one-bowl chewy cherry oatmeal cookies loaded with tart dried cherries, white chocolate chips, and hearty whole grain rolled oats. This is a cookie recipe you’ll make time and time again.



Cherry Oatmeal Cookies

  • ½ cup dairy-free salted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups whole grain rolled oats
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. coarse sea salt
  • 1 cup dried cherries
  • ½ cup dairy-free white chocolate chips *


Cherry Oatmeal Cookies

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

  2. In a large mixing bowl add in the melted butter, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla extract. Stir together until well combined and creamy.

  3. Add in the whole grain oats, flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until fully combined and a dough forms.

  4. Add in the dried cherries and white chocolate chips. Stir until just combined.

  5. Using a 1.5 tbsp cookie scoop drop the cookie dough onto the parchment-lined cookie trays approximately 3 inches apart (note that these cookies will spread) and bake for 9-11 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and the centers appear just slightly under-baked.

  6. Let the cookies cool on the tray for at least 10 minutes before removing them to a cookie rack. Enjoy!

  7. Store leftover cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 7 days. They can also be frozen in a freezer bag or double wrapped with plastic wrap for up to 6 months.


* I use Pascha dairy-free white chocolate chips which can be found here on amazon. If you are not dairy-sensitive, use regular white chocolate chips.
