Dark Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

Believe it or not I have made (and eaten!) quite a few cookies in my lifetime. I love cookies. I remember riding home on the school bus after school and hoping my mom had made cookies. I was that kind of kid.

And I’ve got to say (at the expense of probably sounding a little full of myself) that these are the best cookies I have ever made, or eaten. They are perfectly chewy and have the perfect blend of sweetness from the chocolate and sourness from the fresh cranberries. You could use dried cranberries, you could use milk chocolate (or white chocolate) but please don’t. Because these really are perfect. In my cookie-opinion.

I guess I’ll let you be the judge.

But seriously, so good.

But you can decide.

But they are perfect.

Just saying.

Dark Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies, makes 15 cookies.

Needed: 1/2 cup softened butter, 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, 1 egg, 1 1/2 cups oats, 3/4 cup flour, 1/4 teaspoon baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon baking powder, a generous pinch of salt, 2-3 ounces chopped fresh cranberries and 1/2 cup dark (or semi-sweet) chocolate chips.

In a large mixing bowl cream together the butter and sugar, add the egg and mix well. Now add the oats, flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt and stir until just combined. Mix in the cranberries and chocolate chips.

Bake at 375 F for about 20 minutes. Serve warm with milk.

Enjoy these guys! And (WARNING) I think I may be on a bit of a cranberry kick, so there will probably be a few more cranberry recipes headed your way.

You have been warned. :)

I’ll have to put them in my mouth to judge fairly but, hum, just by reading and seeing these photos… I guess I’d totally agree with you!

Wow, these look and sound absolutely delicious!

Hey Everyone, I’m a total dork. The baking time should be 20 minutes, not 30 minutes. Plus my oven is a little on the cool side so it may take you even less time. Kudos to everyone who already figured this out and left a comment-I am in debt to you. Thanks! (Oh and I adjusted the time above.)

I made these for my husband’s Christmas work party and all the men (he works for the Department of Natural Resources, so we’re taking lumberjack-esq fellows here) LOVED them. They were so yummy and I got to giggle at seeing the guys really enjoy them, too.
