Description

Healthy Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies: warm, cozy spices with chewy oats and sweet ‘n tart cranberries in the best vegan oatmeal cranberry cookies recipe!


Ingredients

Scale

Dry Ingredients

  • ½ cup gluten free oat flour – if using homemade, make sure it’s very finely ground (not coarse)*
  • 1 1/4 cups gluten free rolled oats
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon cardamom
  • ¼ teaspoon salt

Wet Ingredients

  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  • ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
  • 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon golden ground flaxseed + 3 tablespoons warm water, whisked together, set for 15 minutes)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup

Add-ins

  • ½ cup dried cranberries

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or greased foil. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together all of the dry ingredients.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients.
  4. Pour the wet mixture over the dry mixture. Using a rubber spatula, stir and fold until well mixed. Fold in cranberries. Dough will be very sticky and wet.
  5. Using a small or medium cookie scoop, scoop and drop cookie dough balls onto the prepared baking sheet—spaced evenly apart. Using a fork, flatten cookies to desired thickness.
  6. Bake for 12-16 minutes. Mine took 14 minutes. Place baking sheet on a cooling rack, allowing cookies to firm up for about 10 minutes. Using a heatproof spatula, transfer cookies directly onto the cooling rack. Allow to cool for 1 hour. Storing instructions below. Enjoy!

Notes

*If using homemade oat flour, make sure to sift the flour to remove coarse bits of oats that could result in crumbly, fall-apart cookies.

Storing Instructions: Store in an airtight container for 1-2 weeks.

Freezing Instructions: Store in a freezer-friendly container for 1-2 months. Before enjoying, allow to thaw for 10-15 minutes, or until soft enough to bite into. Otherwise, you can heat these cookies in the microwave in 10-second increments until slightly soft.
