Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies


Are you still drooling from yesterday? I am… and I’ve eaten a gazillion of these cookies already!

I first made these cookies just before Thanksgiving and it has been my go-to, one-and-only, I-love-cookies, cookie recipe ever since. I’ve done them with just cranberries, just chocolate, and now I’m mixing it up and adding BOTH!

They are the perfect combination of sweet and nutty tasting…. and they are healthy because they have oatmeal in them AND fruit!


I added mini chocolate chips as well, because I just couldn’t decide if I wanted to make chocolate cookies or just plain cranberry but I figured chocolate never makes anything worse right? Right.

So there you have it…. I promise you won’t be able to just stop at one. Or maybe I just don’t have self control πŸ™‚
