I love oats. I have a weakness for WHITE chocolate. And I adore Maraschino cherries. What could be better than combining these three components into one amazing cookie? These healthy instant oatmeal cookies taste great too, but at this moment I prefer this one. I’m just enjoying this delicious goodness…

Deliciously soft, chewy and totally moreish… Mmmm… The rolled oats give a really nice texture to them.

  • 1 cup (170g) chopped white chocolate or white chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup Maraschino cherries , well drained and sliced into quarters


  • Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Line a large baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.

    This looks really good. I am a Boy Scout, so this looks like something fairly easy to do on a camp out. Not only would it be delicious, but would fill everyone up after a day of camping.4 stars
