PREP TIME: 20 minutes

COOK TIME: 14 minutes

YIELD: 24 cookies


  • 3/4 C rolled oats

  • 1 1/2 C oat flour *

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/3 C sugar

  • 1/3 C packed brown sugar

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1 C dried cherries

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 tsp almond extract

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/3 C canola oil

* I didn’t have oat flour, so I took 2 C rolled oats and ground them in the food processor for about 30 seconds.  In general, 1 C rolled oats produces 3/4 C oat flour.


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients and mix.

  3. In a smaller bowl, combine eggs, extracts, and oil.  Beat lightly until well mixed.

  4. Combine the wet ingredients to the dry, and mix.

  5. Using a 1 tablespoon measuring spoon, drop cookie mixture onto parchment lined cookie sheets.

  6. Place one cookie sheet in the oven at a time.  Bake for 14 minutes.

  7. Let cool for 5 minutes, and enjoy!
