I know that sounds like a mouthful, but I was cleaning out the cupboard
and decided to mix some extras in to make the cookies more delicious and healthy!
Oatmeal = Fiber
Cherries and Dark Chocolate = Antioxidants
Walnuts = Omega-3s
So, healthy! [Right?]
The dough for this recipe can get pretty thick, so a mixer is recommended.
Start by creaming your butter and sugar, then add in the rest of the wet ingredients.
2 sticks (1 cup) softened butter
1 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
Combine your dry ingredients first, then slowly add to the bowl.
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
5 cups oats
And then add in your extras! I went with:
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup dried cherries, roughly chopped
1 cup walnuts
