White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 3/4 cup coconut sugar
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
- 1 large egg, room temperature
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries (we use less-sugar Craisins)
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- In a large bowl, mix together rolled oats, all-purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon and set aside.
- In a separate bowl, mix together coconut sugar, coconut oil, egg, and vanilla.
- Add sugar mixture into dry ingredients and mix until combined. Fold in chocolate chips and dried cranberries.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Use a small cookie scoop to roll out approximately 16 cookie balls. Place an inch apart on baking sheet and bake for 11 minutes.
- Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
- Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
We love to eat these still-warm from the oven to take advantage of the gooey white chocolate chips, but they will keep for up to 4-days in an air-tight container – although from our experience, they never last that long!
