Spiced Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

Spiced Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

These cookies make a great treat and the cranberries contain an array of cancer-fighting antioxidants. The deep red pigments also protect against cancer. In the fall, raspberries make a comeback and you can try substituting cranberry for raspberry too. Feel free to substitute the brown sugar with 1/4 cup of date sugar or 1/2 cup agave nectar. (If using agave, reduce the 1/2 cup nondairy milk by a tablespoon.) Makes 27 cookies
