Strawberry Oatmeal Cookies with fresh strawberries and walnuts

You know what’s my obsession lately? STRAWBERRIES! Fruity, juicy, sweet and flavorful, strawberries. Why I feel you’re not surprised? Maybe cause it’s Spring and strawberries are now in season.

Well my fridge is chock-full of this amazing Spring fruit. I binge on strawberries since they appeared first on market and it seems I’m not done with them yet. Fresh, in Strawberry Ginger Smoothie Bowl or baked in delicious Strawberry Banana Muffins or a handful straight from the fridge – that’s what makes my day instantly better. I know you’ll all agree with me on this one – strawberries are the BEST!

And while I was in the car the other day, waiting for my kiddo to jump in from the school, the scent of fresh strawberries I just bought that spread throughout the car inspired me to make some delightful strawberry dessert for my family that afternoon. In my head, I saw some pancakes filled with Strawberry Chia Seed Jam. But then it hit me. I hadn’t made family favorite oatmeal cookies for a while.

The thought of sweet, chewy cookies filled with fruity fresh strawberries literally made my head explode.

Immediately as we returned home, I mixed up these Strawberry Oatmeal Cookies and guess what?! Everyone LOVED it. They disappeared quickly, and we all agreed that these are the BEST cookies ever. Beside Orange Oatmeal Cookies… and Carrot Cake Oatmeal Cookies… and Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies… OFF COURSE!

Strawberry Oatmeal Cookies with fresh strawberries and walnuts

To make these wonderful Strawberry Oatmeal Cookies I used only real food HEALTHY ingredients – oats full of high-quality dietary fibers good for our digestion and our heart + whole grain flour rich in nutrients. I also tossed in some walnuts packed vitamins and minerals, as well with some powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats good for our heart health. If you are interested to know what foods keep our heart healthy, you can find it in my post here. Walnuts gave the cookies nice nutty flavor but also crunchiness I just looove in cookies.

What makes these cookies so good and so irresistible are the sweet, delightful STRAWBERRIES, of course. I used fresh ones, of course, that are now totally in season + absolutely amazing, bursting with flavors.

I boosted up the overall cookie taste with some spices, but not just any spices – with SUPER spices. I used warm aromatic Ceylon cinnamon and fragrant cardamom that gave cookies a unique taste twist. Both spices are very aromatic but also with many benefits great for our health.

Also, I used healthy coconut oil and pure maple syrup to sweeten up these beauties. These Strawberry Oatmeal Cookies turned out to be a real deliciousness packed in a low-calorie, guilt-free cookie snack.

Since they are highly nutritious – filled with dietary fibers, healthy energy-boosting fats and proteins, they are PERFECT on-to-go breakfast. Also, these are perfect for kids school lunch-box or for after-school’s pick-me-up. Oh, yes… kids love oatmeal cookies … of any kind!
