Cranberry Dark Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

5.20.18

Usually I don’t eat cookies for breakfast. I like to save them for an after dinner treat! These cookies are healthy enough to be enjoyed crumbled on top of some yogurt to have for breakfast or enjoyed when you’re craving something sweet! They also make as the perfect treat during the holidays.

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 easily be changed in this recipe too- you can add raisins, white chocolate chips, or almond butter! I LOVE heating up them up in the microwave for a few seconds along with some nut butter and eating them with a little vanilla yogurt. It makes for such a tasty combo!
