Recipe of the Week: Clean Eating Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

(recipe adapted from Amy’s Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies, which you can find here)

Yield: 18 cookies

1 c instant (quick-cook) oats
¾ c oat flour
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 egg, room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ c agave
¼ c dried cranberries (or feel free to substitute whatever dried fruit you have on hand)
  1. In a medium bowl, combine oat, oat flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
  2. In a larger bowl, whisk together coconut oil, agave, egg, and vanilla. Add in the oat mixture and mix until incorporated.
  3. Add your dried fruit and fold into cookie mixture.
  4. Cover and chill the cookie dough for at least 30 minutes
  5. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Drop cookie dough on lined baking sheet (or brush butter/coconut oil on baking sheet to prevent sticking)

Bake at 350°F for 8-10 minutes or at 325°F for 13-15minutes for chewier cookies.

Enjoy!

To store, I keep my cookies in an airtight container in the freezer and take out as needed (I find that they stay fresher longer, which works well when I make double batches). Alternatively, you you can store them in an airtight container on your counter for up to a week.

Thank you Amy for inspiring this recipe!

  1. I’m so happy you enjoyed my cookies! Your cranberry twist sounds absolutely delicious. I have a bag of pomegranate-flavored craisins I’ve been meaning to put into this recipe; you may have just inspired me to do that! 🙂
