As promised, here’s another cookie recipe! These Oatmeal Chocolate-Cherry Cookies are perfect for gift giving, nomming, partying, bakesale activism, or that looming holiday cookie swap.
These cookies are deelish and have passed the Dazee gluten-free test, they also have a great crumb and are full of delicious flavors and chewy textures.
The original iteration of these cookies was veganized loooong ago from a Martha Stewart cookie issue, but since then, they have been made over so much they no longer resemble their former self. Now they truly shine in their vegan, gluten-free and aquafabulous glory! The next version will be cane-free with just natural sweeteners!
You gotta love a pantry friendly cookie! The mix-ins (cherries, coconut, and chocolate chips) can even be swapped out for other ingredients, depending on what you have and your baking whim and style. I often add whole roasted hazelnuts, or to make them with tropical flavors, I sometimes add dried banana instead of the dried cherries. Both would even be great, or mini vegan marshmallows!
These cookies call for aquafaba (chickpea cooking liquid), and if this is a new ingredient for you, you can read more about it here!
