Rich dark chocolate chunks amidst an oatmeal cookie base dabbled with tangy bursts of POM! Wowee now that’s a cookie I can get down with.

I have been romantic with pomegranates TOO long to not have enjoyed them with dark chocolate. They practically get married in these cookies. Every bite gets a taste of the dazzling combo.

These are the ultimate Christmas cookies to branch away from the usual that you see around at pot-lucks these days. They are completely vegan and can be made gluten free by subbing in almond flour or rice flour for the all purpose.  A holiday cookie that is healthy, delicious and rich with antioxidants- what more do you want this time of year?

This is a small recipe but easily doubled or tripled if your expecting pals to come by!
