Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies (Soy-Free, Vegetarian)

Don’t you love Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies?

Who doesn’t?

Fresh from the oven, piping hot, and straight into your mouth.
How wonderful fresh cookies make your home smell.
The smell will make the pile of dirty dishes and laundry seem much smaller, giving you the excuse to do them tomorrow.
I am easily swayed into putting things off when I am eating cookies.
Well, these cookies are from my daughter’s math review book, she has made these countless times.
So having all the ingredients on hand I decided to put my spin on them.
I added pecans, dried cherries, and chocolate chips. Enjoy!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

These cookies are definitely a treat. However, it is best to make cookies and other baked goods at home because making these types of treats yourself allows you to know exactly what is going into your food and gives you the freedom to control the quantity of the "not so healthy" ingredients. It is healthy to allow yourself to indulge every now and then as long as you do so in moderation!
