I love cookies. A lot. I just never seem to make them at home, but that will have to change. These delicious morsels are based on a Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookie recipe that I made last year, and are so much tastier. They may not be AS healthy, but they are still much better than their competition.

Instead of flattening them out a bit, I made mine into little mounds; so they have a near muffin consistency. Personally, I really enjoy that, but if you want something more crunchy, flatten them out more and bake them for a little longer. Chunks of apple jut from its soft interior, dotted with tart dried cranberries and buttery walnuts, everything melds together in a tasty melody.

These Cran Apple Oatmeal Cookies are really easy to make, and even easier to enjoy. Maybe for breakfast? For me, it’s any time. I don’t see them lasting very much longer on the cooling rack in the middle of my kitchen. I’m pretty sure that they are teasing me with their presence alone. Maybe cookies were a bad idea…
