Sam's Cranberry Oat Cookies

Comfort food

Sometimes the cooking crew comes up with the most amazing desserts, and since Sam has joined our coordinator team these amazing treats have been occuring more and more often. 


We've had so many people ask for the recipe of these cookies, that they finally were willing to share it with all of you. (Though if you want to try them more often without having to bake it yourself, they're apparently a staple at the Heylena cafe, so don't forget to drop by there!) 

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do
