Recipe: Choc-Cranberry Oat Cookies

Since participating in the Sweet Adventures Blog Hop by making white chocolate and macadamia cookies I have been thinking about cookies a lot, so had to make some more! These are a little more on the healthy side but are still deliciously moreish and are perfect with a mid-morning cup of tea. If you don’t have (or like) cranberries you could use sultanas or apricot instead, but I personally think the cranberries work extra well with the dark chocolate.

Ingredients List

  • 150g butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate (chips, or a chopped block



  1. Preheat the oven to 180C
  2. Cream the butter and sugar with electric beaters until light in colour
  3. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until well combined
  4. Sift in the flour and baking powder and fold through
  5. Add the oats, cinnamon, cranberries and chocolate and fold to combine
  6. Place spoonfuls onto lined baking trays and flatten slightly. Bake for 15 minutes
  7. Remove from the oven and cool on a rack then enjoy!

    I have half a packet of frozen cranberries in my freezer. Mum’s been telling me to throw them out but I might just save them by making a batch of these cookies. Thanks for sharing!

      I’m loving dried cranberries at the moment – they are going in everything! Such versatile little bursts of sweetness!
