Oatmeal Cranberry and Pecan Cookies

Oatmeal Cranberry and Pecan Cookies is just another one of Liz's delicious cookie recipe that everyone keeps asking her for. Ever wonder why her cookies are really good and so additive?  They are unbelievably moist and chewy!
 

Her recipe for oatmeal cranberry and pecan cookies is similar to her devilish chocolate chip cookies version. Basically, they are similar to the Weight Watcher cookies, only she opt out the chocolate chips for the cranberries for a healthier twist! 

A cookie you can make in minutes!!   Rolled oats, cranberries, pecans, brown sugar,  butter  and I almost forgot -  NO FLOUR. These cookies only need 10 minutes to prep,  10 minutes to bake, and 10 seconds to disappear. All you need is plenty of milk near by!  Enjoy!   

Here's a Tip: Double or even triple this recipe and freeze in foil trays with covers.  They defrost in minutes.  Also, you can substitute pecans for walnuts or almonds.
