This healthy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe including dried raspberries, craisins, raisins or other dried fruit makes yummy, chewy chocolate chip cookies!
I make this recipe of chocolate chip cookies with oatmeal and dried fruit for our family again and again ... it is one of those "no fail" cookie recipes.
This recipe makes about 4 dozen medium-large cookies.
These cookies freeze very well.
You can use some fresh, and then freeze the other cookies, and take them out as you wish, and pop them in your lunch for a great snack idea!
Or, make them for an after-school snack treat for the kids!
