These chewy Oatmeal Cookies Red, White and Blue have a chewy texture and are so easy to make. Make a batch to celebrate any patriotic holiday.
Oatmeal cookies happen to be one of the DIY Guy's favorite. Me, well, I'm more of a chocolate chip cookie kind of gal. But this past weekend was all about the dad's (right!) so I wanted to make him something to enjoy over the weekend.
I've tried different mix-ins before like pecans, coconut and of course chocolate, but these are definitely more on the fruity side with dried cherries, dried blueberries and white chocolate chunks. A bit on the patriotic side and a lot on flavor!
I love baking treats and in the past, I have sent them to work with John. Well, a few months ago, he started working for a new company (and retiring from his current job) that meant he had to work from home.
His former co-workers were happy for him and the new job but a bit sad the treats would be stopping. I really need to surprise them some day and drop some off. Right?
If you are looking for more oatmeal cookies, here are some you might enjoy.
A chewy oatmeal cookie - red, white and blue!

- Stir in by hand the oatmeal, blueberries, cherries and white chocolate
- Chill in refrigerator for 20 minutes
