Move over Oatmeal Raisin Cookies! There’s a new cookie in town!

These Chewy Cherry Oatmeal Cookies are similar to classic Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, but a lot more fun with sweet and tangy dried cherries mixed in. Here’s another recipe to add to your Cookie Friday collection!

  1. whoa these look good! I was also drooling over mama pea’s chocolate cherry cookies! 0_0 I noticed you don’t use baking powder/soda in a lot of your baked goods–do you think they still come out just as good? not sure if you answered it somewhere else before.

  2. I wonder if these would work with fresh cherries? I have been buying cherries by the bunches from my local market and would love to try! I’ve always wanted to try making a cherry muffin instead of the typical blueberry too…hmmm?! 🙂

  3. Oooh these sound SO good! I used to have cherry oatmeal cookies as a kid but I’m glad to have found this to re-make them! Dried cherries are my favourite 🙂

  4. Yum! This reminds me… when I was staying with my friends on-base in Germany, they had these delicious red, white, and blue cookies. They were sugar cookies with blueberries, white chocolate chips, and cranberries and I was addicted to them!! I bet the combo would be delicious in an oatmeal cookie, too!!

  5. Hey….love the recipes, but wondering about calorie counts on your yummy goodies! Most recipes I can’t seem to find the calorie counts…..which when you are trying to shed a few pounds could be quite handy! Thanks so much!

  6. These look awesome. I want to make them today, but don’t have the flax… would I just use more oats maybe?

        I would think the addition of a leavener would affect the texture more than the taste. They just create air bubbles so the texture is a little lighter. I make cookies for my dog and I generally leave out any baking powder or baking soda because I seem to remember reading somewhere that it’s not great for dogs and the cookies are always flatter & don’t really ‘rise.’

  7. I made these yesterday and they turned out great. I made half as is and the other half with dark chocolate chips. Thanks again for a great recipe!

  8. I have made these cookies before and loved them: but today i made them and they never flattened out- any idea on why this would happen? 🙁
