Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup flour (all purpose flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, slightly softened
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/3 cups dried cranberries
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cover cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, and then stir in the oats.
  • In a large mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time and then scrape down the sides of the bowl; add the honey and vanilla and beat until blended. Add the flour mixture in two additions, beating until well combined. Stir in the cranberries and walnuts.
  • Drop the dough by the heaping tablespoonful about 2 inches apart onto the cookie sheets. Bake until the centers of the cookies are soft and no longer look wet, 9 to 11 minutes. Let cool on the sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
