Using a cookie scooper, scoop a generous amount onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Then put this tray into the oven to bake for 12-15 minutes until the edges are golden!! Once they are out of the oven, use a spatula to carefully transfer the cookies to a rack for them to cool down! Be careful because they will be soft, but will become crunchier once they cool off!!

^ Final Product
WOW!! I, Taylor, adore these cookies!! Out of all the cookies I have ever eaten, these are 100% my favorite!! Once the cookies came out they were both crunchy and chewy. The edges were nice and crunchy while the inside of the cookie was soft and chewy!! There was an amazing combination of flavors and textures between the pretzels and oats and all the dried fruits!! You would never know these are vegan and contain no dairy, nuts, or eggs!! These cookies are to die for and I would 100% recommend these to you!!
I, Ashley can confidently say that these are by far my favorite cookies I have ever tasted. I find myself constantly eating one cookie after the next!! THEY ARE SO ADDICTING! And on top of everything, you don’t feel guilty after eating so many since they are vegan cookies!! I would give this recipe an A+++!
