As the name says it all- these are healthy, addictive, soft, and chewy cookies. No fancy ingredient has been used while making them. I am sure you have everything is already available in your pantry. Trust me these are the best oatmeal cookies you will ever bake.
I have a big pack of 100% whole grain steel cut textured oatmeal which of course, nobody wants to eat. It’s boring! I guess my husband was on a mission to figure out the way to use these oats and when he found that this oatmeal can be used to bake delicious cookies, he was behind me for last 2 month…3 months…Ahhh! actually, more than 5months to bake cookies for him. 😀 It’s not that I haven’t prepared any other healthy cookies for him, he specifically wanted oatmeal cookies. Now that I have baked these cookies I am sure the rest of the oatmeal will be used for making these cookies again and again. ❤
These soft and chewy cookies are loaded with dried cranberries and choco-chips. And a hint of cinnamon and vanilla bring a nice flavor to these cookies. I have replaced all-purpose flour with the whole wheat flour, butter with olive oil, and regular sugar with brown sugar. Healthy as well as tasty! You can either keep them plain and simple or add your favorite nuts, raisins, and dried berries.
Enjoy them with a glass of cold milk or a cup of coffee. Do try these healthy cookies and enjoy whenever you want. Store them in an airtight container.
