Chocolate Walnut Oatmeal Cookies

Happy Belated Easter! I hope everyone had a wonderful day yesterday. I sadly did not get to spend Easter with my family this year because the drive to LA from SF is a bit too far for one weekend 🙁

I made these chocolate oatmeal cookies with walnuts for my meeting tonight (any excuse to bake cookies, right?!). I always wanted to try chocolate oatmeal cookies, and I decided to leave out chocolate chips because I thought they would be too rich. I love the combination of walnuts and chocolate, mmmmm <3

    I made exactly by recipe and they were too dry and way too crumbly. Never make again. You probably won’t post this complaint.

    I added instant coffee powder and dried cranberries too, for a yummy mocha flavor and burst of tart w the cranberries.
