Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1. Line 2 large rimless baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats, or grease; set aside.
  2. 2. In a large bowl, beat butter with brown sugar until fluffy; beat in the egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl, whisk together the oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; stir into the butter mixture in 2 additions until blended. Stir in the chocolate and cranberries.
  3. 3. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Scoop by tablespoons (15 mL) into mounds, set 2-inches (5 cm) apart on prepared baking sheets. Roll each mound into a ball; with a fork, press down to about 1/2-inch (1.25 cm) thickness.
  4. 4. Bake in bottom and top thirds of 350°F (180°C) oven until cookies are golden brown underneath and edges are crisp, about 12 to 15 minutes. Switch and rotate the baking sheets halfway through the baking to ensure even cooking.
  5. 5. Let cookies rest on the baking sheets to firm up, about 3 minutes, before transferring to racks to cool. (Make-ahead: Store at room temperature in an airtight container for up to a week. Freeze for longer storage - up to 1 month if nobody in the house knows about them.

Made the recipe as given, but I'm already thinking of doing a batch with a mix of cranberries, cherries & raisins, or another time when the park does a cookie-tasting get-together, I'll make a batch with the berries, one with the cherries & . . . However they're done, these are ABSOLUTELY GREAT TASTING COOKIES, & the recipe is a definite keeper! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hit Wonders tag]

5 stars and more all the way, Kat!!! :) These cookies were so yummy they even pleased my cranberry and white chocolate despising sis! :) What a tasty recipe you have there, just amazing! The cookies come out so crunchy and yummy with a lovely oaty, sweet, fruity taste. I reduced the sugar to 1/4 cup and they were still superb! THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this wonderfully amazing recipe with us! Made and reviewed for Veggie Swap #17.
