Easy Chocolate Cherry No Bake Cookies using steel cut oats and dried cherries!
Hey all! I am popping in here today with a quick no bake cookie treat! If you are looking for something last minute then I have got you covered!
I have been up to my ears in cookies, chocolate and school parties! But it is all in good fun! It gave me the opportunity to make these Chocolate Cherry No Bake Cookies, which is my favorite cookie, by the way!
I had the opportunity this baking season to try out a few products from Bob’s Red Mill.
You guys. I have never had steel cut oats. Now I have definitely heard of steel cut oats but I have never held them in my hands or knew what they even looked like.
I was definitely surprised when I got a bag of Bob’s Red Mill Steel Cut Oats. Although I knew I didn’t just want to make oatmeal I started to think about what else I could do with them.
Because I also received some dried tart cherries, I thought it would be nice to add these two items together and make no bake cookies.
