The chocolate cherry obsession continues! One chilly, rainy day, the kids were napping and I had somehow finished my blog work for the day and decided that I wanted to make cookies. This is very unusual for me as I am definitely not a baker. I had a bag of dried cherries on hand which I have been obsessed with for most of my life.

I decided to throw some dark chocolate chips in there for good measure. Even when making a dessert, I try to keep them a little bit healthier so I used white whole-wheat flour, oats, ground flax, nut butter and coconut oil in the recipe. They turned out awesome!

I cooked half the batch right away and froze the rest of the dough either for snacking or to bake into cookies. These are awesome for a healthier holiday baking treat or great for year-round. My house now smells delicious from these awesome cookies and I can't wait for Adalyn to get up and try them! She will be so excited since I almost never bake. Maybe I can bake after all???

We just love our UPS guy which as you can imagine, he comes to my house frequently with all of the blog packages that I receive. Adalyn and I saw him run by and we ran outside and gave him some. I hope he enjoyed!!
