Oatmeal Chocolate Craisin Cookies


Oatmeal Chocolate Craisin Cookies

Using oatmeal in cookies is nothing strange on this blog. Some of my favorite cookie recipes are Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies and Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Cookies. {I also like Fudge Oatmeal Cookies and plain old Oatmeal Cookies too!} But adding craisins? Best decision ever. I picked up this fun cookbook by Jessica Seinfeld from the library a couple of weeks ago, and I had trouble deciding what recipe to try out first! I went with her oatmeal raisin cookies, but with no raisins on hand, I substituted some dried cranberries instead. I also believe that no cookie will ever suffer from the addition of chocolate, so in went the mini chocolate chips! This was a good recipe to remind me to experiment a bit with baking, because it never hurts to try different combinations. Did I mention that it only takes thirty minutes in all before you can have one of these delights? I suggest making them as soon as possible.

  1. Okay, so I made these tonight. I used white chocolate chips instead of regular chocolate chips because that was what I had and because I LOVE white chocolate . They turned out SO GOOD. Best oatmeal cookies I’ve ever had. Thanks for sharing!
