Cherry Chunk Cookies

We all know that we shouldn't eat sweets all day every day, but many of us like to have something sweet once a day.

If you're one of those people, baking dessert at home can help you make healthier choices than buying packaged products from the grocery store. You'll be able to control the ingredients, such as how limiting sugar, increasing whole grain, and eliminating ingredients that you don't think belong in your food.

Homemade goods also taste better than processed, packaged goods, which means you'll enjoy your treat more.

This week, I adapted a chocolate chip oatmeal cookie recipe from Cooking Light. I replaced the chocolate with dried cherries to sneak a little fruit into my family's diet. I also reduced the sugar by
¼ cup and removed the salt. The oatmeal adds whole grains and fiber to the cookie.
