Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

There are some days when nothing is going right. It’s cold, your fridge is empty, you have a lot of things to do, but you can’t seem to force yourself to actually do any of them. It’s been one of these days for me. Thankfully, the evening is going to be significantly better, as I’m going to spend it with a huge mug of coffee, watching the Baftas on BBC and hoping for Broadchurch to win everything it possibly can.

I may (okay, I most definitely do) still have a bit of a thing for David Tennant.

In this recipe I’m going back to oats… Seriously, for someone who doesn’t even like them that much I sure bake with them a lot. However, just like with the previous oatmeal-related recipe, I wanted to make it a little less boring. So I searched my kitchen and decided to bake the cookies with brown sugar and to add cranberries and cinnamon.

My heart belongs to chocolate, but my dad loved these ones. Believe me, if these cookies have his mark of approval, they are worth baking.
