[Food Series] Cranberry Orange Oatmeal Cookies

Sometimes our 3 year old's sweet tooth starts screaming for a bite of something yummy and when it comes, she definitely let's me know about it, in very clear terms. We don't keep sweets in our house, no refined sugary substances here, so when the sweet beast reared its curly-tressed head recently, I went digging in the pantry to see what I could come up with! Dried cranberries and some fresh orange zest and we were in business! Enjoy!

1 1/2 cups oats
1 cup flour
1 cup Dried Cranberries
Zest of 1 Large Orange
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 stick of Butter (melted)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup Olive Oil
1/4 cup half & half
1/4 cup water

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. In a food processor, pulverize the oats, then mix in the other dry ingredients; flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Slowly add to the processor all of your wet ingredients; orange zest, cranberries, olive oil, half and half, water, butter and brown sugar. Line a cookie sheet with tin foil and scoop teaspoon-size dollops of cookie dough onto the tray, making sure to leave at least an inch and a half in between. These cookies spread! Bake for 15 minutes, then allow them to cool. Enjoy!
