Apple Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies
Recipe by Dragon

These oatmeal cookies are so chewy and sweet, you won't be able to resist them. Nor should you, since they are full of the wholesome goodness of oats, apples, cranberries and honey. These cookies are so good for you they should have their own food group. Like I always say; an
Apple Cranberry Oatmeal cookie a day, helps keep the cold weather blahs at bay. Would I ever lead you astray? :) Enjoy!

1 1/4 cup brown sugar - firmly packed
1 egg
1/3 cup milk

2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups dried cranberries
1 cup apple, peeled, cored and chopped finely

1. Preheat oven to 375 F.

2. Combine oats, flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.

I tried the recipe and the cookies were wonderful!

I got tired of passing by my favourite coffee shop and they never had any... I may never go back, lol!

Dragon said...

Thank you Hugo, you made my day. :)

I just made this recipe last night because we had a ton of apples that needed to be used up.

I added some walnuts for a little nutty flavor and used almond milk since that is all we have in the house right now. They turned out awesome!

Next time I'll probably shape them a little bigger and bake longer to make them a little crunchier.

Now I've randomly googled this recipe a while back, looking for healthy cookie ideas, and I have lost count at how many times I've made this recipe! They have come out fantastic EVERY time!

I've even made them unhealthy by making ice cream sandwiches with them (strawberry ice cream worked best so far :) )

This is truly my go to recipe for oatmeal cookies, and everyone who has tried them loves them too. Thanks so much for this gem!
