Chocolate-Covered Cherry Oatmeal Cookies

With Quaker Perfect Portions Oatmeal, you can make as little or as much instant oatmeal as you want. The versatility and variety options are endless. I like to turn that bowl of oatmeal into a wholesome batch of fruity oatmeal cookies that we can all grab on our way out the door. No guilt and amazing flavor put a smile on everyone’s face.

These rich, thick cookies are bursting at the seams with sweet chocolate-covered cherries, that no one can resist. And the best part is, they’re filled with ‘no sugar added’ Quaker Oats! I control the amount of sugar that my family will be eating and that makes for a great start to any busy day!

What you’ll need for approx. one dozen super-stuffed oatmeal cookies (you can easily double this recipe for more):

1 1/2 cups of Quaker Perfect portions Maple Oatmeal
2 cups of Chocolate Covered Cherries
3/4 cup Flour
2/3 cup Brown Sugar..packed
1/2 cup (one stick) Butter..softened
1 Large Egg
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/4 teaspoon Salt (just a pinch)
Chocolate Syrup if you so desire!


In a large bowl cream together the brown sugar, vanilla, egg and butter, set aside.

In another bowl sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.

Add the dry ingredients into the wet and mix until well combined.

Now stir in the oats...

And gently fold in the chocolate-covered cherries…

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place scoops of the cookies two inches apart.

Put them into the fridge to chill while the oven preheats to 350 degrees. This will keep them nice and thick as they bake…

Bake them for approx. 12 minutes, until they're golden around the edges.

Let them cool before devouring any…


Have you found a way to make everyone in your life happy? If so, please tell me the secret! Especially when it comes to food, everyone has their likes and dislikes for different textures, flavors and colors. It's not usually a problem to accommodate, unless it's a weekday morning and the race to get fed and out the door is on!

It would be all too easy to grab an unhealthy doughnut and go, but that's not necessary thanks to Quaker Perfect Portions (Maple) Oatmeal.
