Hello, there my 36th Avenue friends. It’s Gina from Kleinworth & Co. & I’m so excited to be here today to share my new cookie obsession, Cranberry Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. The family loves oatmeal cookies. But I really prefer chocolate chip. I certainly couldn’t make both because I’m also trying to be good about counting points & not overindulging. So I decided to put a twist on an old favorite & pack my traditional oatmeal cookies full of dark chocolate & cranberries. But I kept them on the skinny side by using whole wheat flour & honey too. These are by far the best oatmeal chocolate chip cookies I have made to date.

Do you know what I really love about these cookies? They have enough healthy stuff in them that I can justify having them alongside my morning cup of jo. I only did that one day, I promise. But really, you can’t go wrong with oatmeal cookies loaded with all the yummy ingredients like dark chocolate, honey & cinnamon. Adding a twist like cranberries instead of raisins made these not only the perfect fall cookie, but the perfect cookie recipe to serve at all the upcoming holiday festivities. I can’t wait to share these with friends & extended family.
