Low Fat Oatmeal Cookies



A more accurate name would have been "low fat oatmeal chocolate chip cranberry cookies" since each nook and cranny of this cookie is chuck full of goodies. Just the way I like it. These are also great with coffee on mornings.

2 tbsp butter
2 oz fat free cream cheese
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups whole oats
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup dried cranberries

1. Set oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Set aside.
2. Beat together butter, cream cheese, sugar until light an fluffy.
3. Whisk in egg, vanilla, extract and milk.
4. In a separate bowl, combine flours, baking powder, baking soda and 1 cup of the whole oats.
5. Using a spatula, mix the flour mixture to the cream cheese mixture. Fold in the remaining oats, chocolate chips, and dried cranberries.
6. Drop approximately 2 tablespoons of batter per cookie unto cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack before serving.

They look really delicious! I love the cranberries and white chocolate in them. I made chocolate chip cookies last night and my Mom said "I bet these would be good with cranberries in them."
