I first saw the recipe on the Chew in one of my marathon sessions of watching The Chew. One episode two or three I stumbled on these delicious cookies! Oatmeal cookies have never been my favorite, but the addition of the tart cranberries really intrigued me!

Now, on to my problem. First off, I love this picture of the animal in an apron. I found it on pinterest and it literally cracks me up every time I look at it. I decided I would use it in my blog any time a recipe did not come out right. This recipe was one of them. When these babies came out of the oven they looked so good! I could not wait to eat them. I sank my teeth into them and they tasted good at first, but they had a really terrible after taste. I have no idea where I went wrong. All of the ingredients were yummy alone (cranberries, walnuts dough batter) so I have no idea where I went wrong. I added chia seeds on a whim, but they are said to have no taste so I don't think it was them. I thought maybe it was adding baking soda. Is that normal in baking? I was thinking maybe they meant to put baking powder? No idea.Here is the recipe from the Chew that I used.
I will absolutely try these again because they are nutritious ( well, as nutritious as a cookie can be) and they have alot of potential. I decided to include this post even though they were a disaster because everyone makes mistakes in the kitchen! Even this lady!
