Oatmeal raisin cookies are a thing of the past. Let's amp up our cookie game by adding cranberries and walnuts! This delicious and elegant twist on oatmeal raisin cookies is my favorite cookie recipe! These cookies are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. The cranberries give them a fresh taste, while those walnuts bring on a warm flavor. The best part about these cookies is the perfect balance of oats to cookie. With my measurements, it won't feel like your eating a bowl of oatmeal! Let's go make the best cookies you have ever had!
Cranberry Walnut Oatmeal Cookies
These cookies are the bomb! I love how easy and simple they are. They satisfy a sweet tooth and a salt craving. I like to start by taking out my butter and eggs so they start to go down to room temperature. Then I measure out my ingredients, but sometimes I just measure as I go. Follow the instructions on the mixing of ingredients so that the cookies come out at the right texture. The oats, cranberries, and walnuts are the stars of this show. The oats are there but not overly noticeable. That's one thing I don't like about oatmeal raisin cookies, is the texture of them. The texture is just too busy. That's why only adding 2 cups of oats will allow them to have the perfect texture and consistency. I love using dried cranberries to bake with. This recipe is perfect for them because it allows the cookies to be refreshing and not too heavy. Walnuts taste good in anything! You can absolutely substitute anything in this recipe for your preferences, even the cranberries, and walnuts. You can also add more or less of them too. I prefer more cranberries and fewer walnuts.
I make these cookies every Christmas for my family and friends. Everyone loves them! I know I love them. This year, I wanted to make a batch now for the beginning of summer. As I said above, they really are refreshing. These can be cookies for a snack or dessert. They are very versatile and I love that. I have always been a fan of oatmeal raisin cookies, but some recipes for them can be gross. These cookies are amazing though! Cranberry Walnut Oatmeal Cookies are revolutionary, and everyone deserves to try them! They are my favorite cookies, and will probably be yours too!
