Preheat oven to 180°C.

Mix together the oats, flour, oat bran, oatmeal, brown sugar, cranberries, cinnamon, orange rind and almonds (if using them.)

In a saucepan, heat the butter, maple syrup and milk till the butter has melted.

Gradually add the warm butter mixture to the flour mixture and use a fork to combine.

Leave this mixture until it is cool enough to handle, and if necessary add a little oat bran to make it easy to combine.
Shape into little mounds and arrange on baking sheets, well-spaced, and bake for 10-15 minutes.

You could sprinkle some cinnamon sugar over them before baking.

Leave on baking sheets to firm for about 10 minutes then transfer to cooling racks – they will firm up as they cool.

These are quite chewy cookies and are best served with some warm cinnamon infused milk.
