Our Oatmeal Pecan Cherry Cookies are loaded with heart-healthy oats, tart dried cherries, and crunchy pecans. They're a thick, soft and chewy cookie and the crunchy pecans balance the tart cherries perfectly!
When measuring the oats make sure the measuring cup is level and not rounded. Because adding too many oats will make the cookies dry.
For crispier oatmeal cookies: Decrease the rolled oats to 3 1/2 cups and press the dough down about halfway before baking.
Serve warm or cool completely before storing in an airtight container. These cookies also freeze well in an airtight container for up to 6 months.
