Pomegranate Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies

January 6, 2012

These pomegranate chocolate chunk oatmeal cookies from Hidden Ponies are a unique take on the classic oatmeal cookie.  The pomegranate seeds add a burst of tartness to the cookie while the oatmeal adds texture and the chocolate adds richness.  The best way to de-seed a pomegranate aside from just buying the seeds themselves is to remove them in a bowl of water.  This way you will keep your kitchen clean and your clothes unstained.  Pomegranate chocolate chunk oatmeal cookies are a delicious o start to 2012.

Thanks for the feature! I loved these cookies...and another great way to de-seed the pomegranate is to cut it in half and whack each half with the back of a spoon over a large bowl - quicker and more fun :)
