2 eggs
1 1/2 c. old-fashioned rolled oats
1 1/2 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 pkg. sweetened dried cranberries (about 1 1/2 cups)
2/3 c. white or semi-sweet chocolate chips(optional)

Preheat over to 375 degrees F (190 C). Using electric mixer, beat sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add eggs; mix well.

These are really good. I didn't put the chocolate chips in.
