Heart-Healthy Cherry-Chocolate Chip Cookies by My Baking Heart


It’s all about the heart this month. And on LSK today, I’ve posted these Heart-Healthy Cherry-Chocolate Chip Cookies. Filled with oats, dried cherries and dark chocolate chips, they’re a sweet ending to any meal.

Since I almost ate the entire batch by myself (while counting the PointsPlus™ value, mind you), it’s a great thing that they’re good for you! Hop on over to Live Sigma Kappa to check them out!

Heart-Healthy Cherry-Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: 30 cookies

Serving Size: 1 per serving


  • 1/3 c all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 c whole-wheat flour
  • 1-1/2 c old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Kosher salt
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 c light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 lg egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 c dried cherries
  • 1 c dark chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Whisk together the flours and next 3 ingredients (through salt) in a large bowl; set aside.

Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat and add brown sugar, stirring until smooth. Add sugar mixture to flour mixture, then beat with a mixer at medium speed until well blended. Add vanilla and egg, beating until combined. Fold in cherries and chocolate.

Drop dough by tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake for 12 minutes or until set. Cool on pans 3 minutes, then remove cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
