Bake cookies tonight

These little treats may look all granola and healthy. But don't be fooled. They have enough chocolate-y, sugary goodness to lure in anyone with a sweet tooth.

Chocolate Cherry Oat Nuggets

2 cups organic, rolled oats
2 cups organic, whole wheat flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2/3 cup organic peanut butter
4 Tbsp. organic grapeseed oil
2 cups sucanat or other minimally-processed sugar
2/3 cup hemp milk
4 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups vegan chocolate chips
2/3 cups organic chopped walnuts
1/4 cup organic dried cherries

1. Preheat oven to 350. Oil baking sheets

2. In a large bowl, mix oats, flour, baking soda and salt. Add chips, walnuts and cherries.

3. In a small bowl, mix peanut butter and oil until well blended. Stir in sugar, hemp milk and vanilla.

4. Add milk mixture to flour mixture. For tender cookies, be careful not to overmix the dough.

5. Bake 13-15 minutes.
