There are some recipes that you just know you are going to love. As a cookie fan, I thought chocolate chip cookies were unrivaled, until I tasted these delicious…
Spiced Oatmeal Cookies with dried Cranberries and Apricots
These cookies are just so sweet (withouth that much sugar), healthy, energizing, and spiced, that I still have in my mind the smell they spread from the oven.
And it’s the combination of dried cranberries and apricots that do the trick: you would not think that you would end up loving them over chocolate!
The preparation is quite easy: pick two bowls (so you can separate the moist ingredients from the dried ones) and start mixing up all the ingredients, you’ll be amazed at how quick and not-messy this recipe is!
The one thing I absolutely love about this recipe is the amount of spices used: cinnamon, ground cloves, and ginger powder. The cinnamon we used at class was so particulary aromatic and scented, it really made a big difference at the end.
Anything left? A little trick! If you have just taken these cookies out of the oven, and they are too warm to take home… don’t panick! At class we were able to bring them home safe and sound: if you don’t have a cooling rack, create some ventilation between the cookies and the table, so they can breathe a little, and then put them in a tin or a glass jar It will make all the difference compared to the typical plastic tupperware!
Now there’s only one thing left: In the morning, wake up, get dressed, pick some of these energizing cookies to work, and have them for breakfast, or at your mid morning minibreak at the office. You will feel rejuvenated!
