• Loaded Oatmeal Cookies

    May 2, 2014

    Happy Cookie Friday! Here’s a recipe for soft and chewy Loaded Oatmeal Cookies that will help you enjoy the day!

    These aren’t your usual oatmeal cookies. They’re loaded with all sorts of delicious ingredients, including dried cranberries, sliced almonds, and shredded coconut, so there’s a lot going on in each bite, but I have a good feeling you’ll love that about them! Side note: I hope you like these cookies as much as Mal did. I ate 3-4 of them and he finished off the rest in about 48 hours by himself! He was a big fan!!

    • 1 tsp baking soda

    Cookie Friday is Awesome! I am marking these to make this weekend. I think I’ll add in some white chocolate chips though too : )

    These cookies have everything in them that I like!!

    I recently got almond flour, so I want to do something with that soon? Any ideas?

    If you search CNC, there are a lot of almond recipes (for cookies)! 😄
