I created this recipe when looking for a somewhat health-ier version of the classic oatmeal cookie. Here's what came of it, hope you like it :)


  1. Blend honey with the egg and oil.
  2. Sift flours, baking powder, and salt into the honey mix. Stir well.
  3. Add oats and mix until even.
  4. Stir in nuts and cranberries (if using).
  5. If necessary, cover and refrigerate dough 15-20 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  7. Line a cookie sheet with waxed or parchment paper.
  8. Using an ice-cream scoop, drop dough onto sheet.
  9. Bake, on the top rack, 8-10 minutes.
  10. Remove from oven and allow to sit on cookie sheet 5 minutes.
  11. Place on cooling rack.

I was looking for some simple dairy free cookies and these are definitely it. They have a nice texture and flavour, although I did use macadamia nuts as I didn't have any walnuts in the cupboard. DH was a bit dubious because they were dairy free but he took a bite and said "these are good", so I'd make these again. Thanks for the recipe.

This was a really great base recipe. My daughter is allergic to milk. I did modify the recipe by adding 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp vanilla, and used pecans and raisins. I finally used an egg replacer for the egg. I was out of eggs, but I am excited to try the recipe again, using the exact ingredients. Anyways, for anyone that wants to know, it works as a vegan recipe too.
