We Heart Cookies: Double Chocolate Chip Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

3If there is a sweet treat, barely someone can resist, it’s chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. Crunchy or chewy, does not matter. The combination of rustic oats and sweet chocolate is mouth-watering and can only be topped with a fruity component: cranberries that is. When I discovered this recipe a few years ago, I did not know these cookies would become not only my but everybody’s all-time favorite cookies. Literally everyone who knows the true promise of these cookies, becomes a huge fan: family, friends, boyfriend, collegues, gym buddies, friends at acting class — all ages, all kinds of different people.

Great thing about the recipe is that you can vary the ingredients as you like: maybe you prefer nuts over cranberries or only milk chocolate chips? Feel free to try out new variations! They turn out to be delicious either way. To tell you a little secret: every time someone (besides my mother) asked me for the recipe, I kept it a secret. But today is the day I will no longer hold back on giving out the best chocolate chip oatmeal cookies ever.

This is why I happily share my recipe with you.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (soft) butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tsps vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • about 1 tsp salt
  • 3 cups oats
  • about 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • about 3/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • about 3/4 cup dried cranberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (165°C).
  2. Cream together the butter and sugars until smooth. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and stir until well combined.
  3. Add flour, baking soda, salt and oats, chocolate chips and cranberries to the creamy mixture and mix until well combined.
  4. Forming balls with an ice-cream scroop, place the cookies on a baking sheet. You do not need to flatten them.
  5. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
  6. When you take the cookies out to cool on a wire rack, be careful: they might be soft, but they will become firm once cooled off.
