Every once in a while, oatmeal cookies would come to mind. I love chewy oat cookies with some dried fruits thrown in. I would choose any oatmeal cookies over chocolate cookies anytime!
I did make some slight changes to the recipe. The recipe uses oat flour which I do not have, so I have used wholemeal flour, as suggested by the author if oat flour is unavailable. The recipe also uses both steel-cut oats (a small amount) and old-fashioned rolled oats. Did not have any steel-cut oats, so have used all rolled oats instead. Replaced the pecans with walnuts. As usual I have reduced the amount of both sugars (brown and white) slightly.
The cookies really spread during baking, so make sure to space them well apart. I did bake them 2 minutes longer as I like my cookies a little crispy.
This recipe yields 31 cookies (32 in the recipe), which is close enough.
I love these cookies. It is crispy round the edges, with chewy centre, and tasted so yummy with the oats, cranberries, and walnuts. After a few days later, the cookies get a little drier but became crispier as they sit, which is a plus in my books! I think this is the best oatmeal cookies. Great for breakfast, as snacks throughout the day, and especially with a cup of warm tea for a superb tea time treat!
