Chewy Chocolate Cherry Cookies

Sometimes you just need a chocolate fix and just because you are vegan doesn’t mean your chocolate days are gone. These cookies are healthified chocolate heaven with dried cherries to add a little sweet surprise.

Chewy Chocolate Cherry Cookies

Makes 18 cookies


  • 2 1/2 cups spelt flour
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup dried cherries
  • 2/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup sunflower oil
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350F. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, sea salt. Add the dried cherries. In a small mixing bowl whisk together the maple syrup, sunflower oil and vanilla extract. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Roll the cookie dough into tablespoon-size balls and place onto the baking sheet. Press each cookie down slightly. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cookies should be just done and still soft so that they are chewy. Makes 18 cookies.

Today looks like it is going to be a rainy day! 😦 But I guess rainy days are good for doing even more baking!

Have a great day!

  4. OK, I just made these for the second time. I love these hot right out of the oven and can never wait for them to cool! My teenage sons have weekly D&D group that will enjoy them tomorrow. I am being nice and sharing but wasn’t sure I’d be able to when they first made the request, lol!
