oatmeal cranberry cookie

Just another work treat, they seem to really like having cookies to munch on so I'm always on a search for something new.  Of course the old stand by's they love too!  This is a simple cookie to make and you could say it's healthy...well come one it's got oats in it!  :)

  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • 6 tablespoons neutral flavored oil (canola, melted coconut, etc.)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats + ¼ cup hot water
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ⅓ cup each: dried cranberries, chopped pecans, chocolate chips
  • **you can make these with walnuts and dried cherries**

Preheat the oven to 350.
In a bowl, combine butter, oil, and vanilla. Mash until butter is soft. Add in sugars and stir to cream them together, and then stir in an egg.
In a separate bowl, combine oats and hot water and let it sit for 5 minutes until oats are slightly softened. Add them to the wet mixture.
Add in flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt, and stir to combine it all with the wet mixture. Add in your mix-ins (no more than 1 cup of total assorted mix-ins).
Refrigerate dough for at least 10 minutes.
Measure out tablespoon-sized cookies, and bake them onto parchment lined cookie sheets for 12 minutes, or until the bottoms are golden.
Let the cookies cool fully before removing them from the baking sheet

**do not skip step of letting oatmeal set or you could have very flat cookies**
Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful week and Always Remember to Find the Time to do ALL the things YOU L♥ve.
