These oatmeal cookies have a little extra goodness, in the forms of oat flour, cranberries, walnuts and optional chocolate chips. Perfectly chewy and full of flavor, and even better, some nutrition in there too.
In a large bowl, beat together until smooth:
3/4 cup butter/margarine (Smart Balance = no dairy)
3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Add and mix well:
1 1/2 cups flour (I used 1 cup unbleached all purpose and 1/2 cup oat flour)
1 tsp baking soda
1 heaping tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt (optional)
3 cups oats (quick or rolled, I prefer quick)
1 cup dried cranberries
1/4-1/2 cup chopped walnuts
chocolate chips (optional)
Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, cool and eat!
