Oh my faithfuls…
I’m afraid I have to confess something to you.
I’ve baked you yet another batch of oatmeal cookies this week.
I know, I know, I already baked you a batch last week.
I can almost hear you all say: “Oh no, not cookies again! Enough with the cookies, already! We want cabbage, we want cabbage!”
Well, fear not my dears, I shall give you cabbage pretty soon, like sometime next week. But for now, please, bear with me as we enjoy a few more goodie goodie healthy treats, alright? Then you can have your veggies, I promise!
Hey, ’tis the season after all, isn’t it?
So cookies are definitely in order. And can you think of anything that says Christmas better than an Orange Cranberry Oatmeal Cookie?
Alright, don’t answer that, I know there are thousands, no, millions of other things… but still, this would be a good one, I find.
And this recipe right here, despite being shockingly healthy, is very suitable for the occasion. I’d even dare say that they would make a great gift. Just don’t label them as healthy, and your recipient will never know.
I’m telling you, you’d swear there was butter in those cookies. I don’t know what it is, but they definitely have this rich, buttery flavor to them.
Plus, they are super moist, again surprisingly sweet despite having no added sugar whatsoever, and even came out of the oven nice and golden brown as well as slightly crispy on the exterior.
There’s just nothing not to like about that recipe. I honestly wouldn’t change a thing.
These are by far, my favorite and bestest oatmeal cookie success so far, and I think that I will have to make at least a few more batches before I move on to the next flavor inspiration.
Nahhhh… I couldn’t do that. You know me: the need to create something new will undoubtedly take over the need to eat these exact same cookies again.
