Dark chocolate Cherry Oatmeal Cookies are incredibly easy to make using staple ingredients. These bakery-style cookies are chewy on the inside and crispy on the outside and don’t require chill time. They’re the perfect balance of sweet and tart flavors.

  • 228 g (1 3/4 cups) all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
