Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cranberry Cookies

Baking cookies is just not for fall or holiday season; you can bake them all year around. Yes, I know you want to eat something light during summer months; and cookies doesn’t sound appropriate. So here is the option try these oatmeal peanut butter cranberry cookies made with peanut butter and olive oil instead of regular butter.

I made these cookies on a rainy summer day also they got ready in less than 1/2 an hour. So perfect for me as I was having sore throat and spending more time in kitchen was a big “No” for me. So I tried these cookies with ginger tea and it was a kind of bliss. I am sharing this recipe today and you can make them anytime. You can also replace cranberries with dried blueberries or raisins.  I have used olive oil instead of butter and you can also use coconut oil or vegetable oil as a substitute.Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cranberry cookies
