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 softened butter, brown sugar, egg, and vanilla extract. Stir together until well combined and creamy.

  3. Add inwhole-graingrain 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.
