this Dan Lepard recipe. These cookies are really quick and simple to make and, as the recipe uses wholemeal flour and oats, you can at least pretend that it's healthy. These were made to go into lunchboxes, so I didn't feel the need to be too extravagent with the chocolate - I used a standard bag of plain chocolate chips from the baking section of the supermarket. I've decided I really don't like almond extract unless it's enhancing the flavour of almonds, so I went back to vanilla extract in this recipe.
So, to summarise - I added 100g chocolate chips, 150g dried cranberries and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the basic dough recipe and made 20 cookies from one batch of dough. These cookies are quite substantial and nicely chewy, excellent either as part of a nourishing packed lunch or as a snack with a mug of coffee or tea.
