These soft and chewy dark chocolate cranberry oatmeal cookies are so yummy. When I made them during the holidays last year they didn’t last long in my house. The ingredients can be easily be changed in this recipe too. I love using white chocolate chips in the place of dark chocolate sometimes or even dried cherries in the place of cranberries. The cranberries do add a fun pop of color for the holidays though! 

I LOVE heating up these cookies with a little nut butter in the microwave for a few seconds then eating them with a little vanilla yogurt. It makes for such a tasty combo and a healthy afternoon snack or evening dessert. 

What’s your favorite holiday cookie?
