Healthy Cranberries and Oatmeal Cookies

My cooking blue started again for past few weeks. It caused by facebook's application called happy farm, i'm so addicted to it recently. Happy farm is just small game where u can plant and harvest some kind of fruits. It is nothing compared to maple story and travian but i have so much fun playing that my friends called as a "boring game". I spent most of my evening infront of my laptop, planting, harvesting, take care my plants even stealing from my friend's farm.
Feeling so upset when i can't access my farm yesterday, so off i go, to my old favorite website, foodgawker and found this amazing and healthy cookies recipe. And why i call it healthy? because no butter in it, i even substitute canola oil with olive pomace oil, skipped chocolate chips and add more oatmeal and it still turned out great.
So, do you think that big amount of sugar is healthy as well? I would say yes, since it impossible to bake cookies without sugar ^_*

Melting Brownies

What can i say about this? well, this is the best brownies i've ever made so far. With melted chocolate in the center, my friends at work gave me two thumbs up. One of them said, she'll give me 5 thumbs up if only she have it.... From now on, i will stick to this recipe for brownies and maybe some modification with peanut butter and or cream cheese next time. To make it even more special, i also made a recipe card for this one.

Source: discussion at NCC yahoo groups and of course...with slight modification.
