Beat together until creamy (I use food processor fitted with steel blade):
¾ c canola oil (or 1/2 c olive oil + 1/4 c orange juice)
1 c firmly packed brown sugar
½ c granulated sugar
1 egg (I usually use 1/4 c "egg product")
¼ c orange juice
Zest of one orange (optional)
1 t vanilla
3 c oats, uncooked (traditional, not quick-cook)
1 c flour
½ t soda
Pulse mixer just to blend oats with other ingredients; don't pulverize the oats! Mix in by hand not with food processor:
2 c (8oz) cranberries, coarsley chopped
1/3 c nuts (I use walnuts/pecans), coarsley chopped
Drop by rounded teaspoon onto greased or non-stick cookie sheet. Bake ~15 minutes.
Cool on wire rack.
