Ever since I made the incredible Gluten Free Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies I have been craving chocolate and cherry combos. These gluten free chocolate cherry oatmeal cookies are also pretty incredible. I love the texture as well as the flavor.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour blend, oat flour, oats, baking soda, and salt.
In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Remove from heat and whisk in the brown sugar until it fully melts. Scrape the butter-sugar mixture into the dry ingredients and beat on medium speed thoroughly combined.
Switch to the paddle attachment and add the dried cherries, vanilla, and egg. Beat until just combined.
Add the chopped chocolate and mix on low until thoroughly distributed.
Drop 1-1/2 tablespoons of dough at a time onto the baking sheets, spaced 2 inches apart. Bake 12 minutes or until slightly golden brown around the edges. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the baking pans 4 minutes. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
