Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies!
We fixed these for our after Thanksgiving Party that we celebrated. We made an assortment of cookies and these were a real hit!
We found this recipe in the Taste of Homes and simply adapted it to be healthier. Now keep in mind, cookies would probably not fall under a health food but doing a few changes does make it on the healthier side. :) They were a real hit with our family.

1/4 cup milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla

1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1 cup white chocolate chips (our addition!)
