Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

Oatmeal raisin cookies are one of the most classic cookies out there, for good reason. This year, I wanted to combine the deliciousness and nostalgia of oatmeal raisin cookies with the seasonal wintery goodness of cranberries… and these oatmeal cranberry cookies were born! These cookies are a comforting dream come true for the holiday season.

These oatmeal cranberry cookies are made gluten-free using gluten-free rolled oats and almond flour, vegan using flax eggs, and dairy-free! But trust me, you’d never know the difference just by tasting them 😉

The Ingredients for Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

  • Dried Cranberries: These are one of my favorite dried cranberries to use! They have no added sugar or oils.
  • Gluten-Free Rolled Oats & Almond flour: These make the base of this delicious cookie.
  • Ground Flax Seed: To make the flax eggs that bind these cookies together.
  • Coconut Sugar & Maple Syrup
  • Coconut Oil
  • Baking Soda
  • Cinnamon

How to Make Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

  • Make Flax Eggs: Preheat the oven to 350 F and line a large baking sheet with lightly greased parchment paper. Using a large bowl, whisk the flax and water together. Set aside and allow to set for 5 minutes until the mixture thickens.
  • Make Cookie Dough: Add the coconut sugar, maple syrup, and coconut oil to the flaxseed mixture and stir well to combine. Pour in the oats, almond flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and cranberries, and stir well to ensure that the cranberries are evenly dispersed throughout the batter and there are no clumps of flour.
  • Bake Cookies: Using a cookie scoop (or your hands), scoop the cookies onto the baking sheet and evenly space. Lightly flatten with the back of your hands. You should have about a dozen cookies. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-17 minutes or until the cookies are firm.
  • Cool & Serve: Transfer to a cooling rack and allow to cool before enjoying.
