Baking at night time might be my new favorite thing. I did not have any urgent homework to get done last night and I had a few things that I wanted to get off my mind. So, making some Oatmeal, Cranberry, Chocolate Chip cookies seemed like a necessary use of my time. And it was SO worth it.
These might be my favorite cookies ever and I owe them all to the beautiful Giada De Laurentiis! They got that hardy oat flavor, the fruity cranberries, and the chocolate that is in my opinion a necessary component in all cookies... here's the lovely recipe
I have made these cookies numerous times and they are hard to screw up. You can also make them a little more wholesome by using spelt flour or other whole grain flours, organic butter, a mix of sucanat and muscovado sugar, and dark pure chocolate (not Nestles semi-sweet chips like I used last night).
I am bringing these delicious little bites to lacrosse practice today to celebrate it being Friday and the beginning of a 3 day weekend! I am a little too excited. Have a happy friday and bring some smiles to faces this weekend with these cookies!
