Oatmeal and Cranberry Cookies


I’ve been thinking long and hard about my goals and dreams for 2014.
Among them is to find a healthier way of bringing sweet treats to my family and friends. One excellent way is incorporating oats into my baking. Not only is a healthier option, but it’s delicious as well. The recipe below is inspired from one of the recipes by Magnolia Bakery

So without delay here’s my first treat for 2014.

  1. My roommate always uses cranberry in everything : salad, oatmeal, cookies, and granola. She made something similar like this and I like. I’m going to try mine. Btw, my roommate once made a homemade granola bars. The ingredients were similar to this, you just basically need honey, oats, cranberry, and coconut flakes (if u like coconut)
    It turned out to be a very good homemade granola bars 🙂
