Chocolate Chip Cranberry Oat Cookies are soft, packed with so many fall flavors and are a fun spin on Country Crock’s Make it Yours™ Cookie Recipe which is the perfect cookie dough base!
I will admit that this summer I spent as little time in the kitchen as possible. We were so busy doing summery things that baking took a back seat for the first time for me in almost 7 years. I really needed a few months to spend focused on my kiddos and not necessarily the next recipe for my website. And let me tell you, we had a LOT of fun!
HOWEVER, my baking sheet was never too far away.
And I found myself drawn to easy recipes that were adaptable and required as little thought as possible…which brings me to today!
A few months ago I teamed up with my friends over at Country Crock to create a custom cookie using their Make it Yours™ Cookie Recipe, which is great on it’s
own, but is the perfect base recipe to get creative! The possibilities are endless.
Country Crock is a buttery spread that tastes fresh and is made from ingredients you can actually pronounce, which makes me very happy!
And I decided that using their Make It Yours™ Cookie Recipe was the perfect cookie to get me back in the kitchen. With the cooler temperatures right around the corner I knew that I wanted to make a “cozy” cookie.
I chose some mix-ins that really made me think of fall: Dried Cranberries, Oats, Walnuts and cinnamon!
The cookie recipe really comes together quickly, which is a MUST in my house this time of year now that school is back in session!
Use a cookie scoop to drop the dough onto your baking sheet, which will make all of your cookies the same size and shape!
They bake up like a dream!
And the cranberries, nuts and cinnamon pair perfectly with the semisweet chocolate chips!
I would love to hear some of your favorite cookie flavor combinations! You guys are my greatest inspiration!
These are a great lunchbox treat or mid-day sweet snack!
