Caleb loves dried cranberries. He calls them treats. Every day he walks up to our pantry door and yells, “Mommy, treat!” Before I give him a few dried cranberries, he has to give me a big kiss. It’s the secret password:) I don’t mind spoiling him with dried fruit, especially since I am getting kisses! I hope he will continue this little game until he is 18:)

The other day I got out the dried cranberries for Caleb and decided to make my favorite treat, cookies! I made Almond Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies.

Caleb wasn’t excited to share his dried cranberries at first, but after I told him we were baking cookies, he was more than happy to share!  Caleb likes to help me bake cookies. He loves watching the mixer work it’s magic!

I wanted to create a healthy cookie so I used almond butter, Almond Breeze almond milk, white whole wheat flour, and oats. I didn’t use any butter or eggs. These cookies are dairy free and vegan! Just make sure you use vegan chocolate chips if you need the cookies to be vegan.

The almond butter and almond milk keep the cookies nice and moist. The oats give the cookies texture and the dried cranberries and chocolate chips add the perfect amount of sweetness!

If you are looking for a new cookie recipe to bake up, try these healthy Almond Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies. I loved them and so did Caleb. I think these cookies are his new favorite treat. If he starts begging for Almond Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies every day, I might just give in…as long as he gives me kisses and lets me eat cookies with him!

Ingredients:

1 cup Gold Medal white whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup almond butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup Almond Breeze almond milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips (or regular chocolate chips)

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper and set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.

2. With an electric or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, combine the almond butter and brown sugar. Mix until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Mix in the almond milk and vanilla extract, scraping down the sides if necessary.

3. Turn the mixer to low and add the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. Stir in the oats, dried cranberries, and chocolate chips.

4. Roll cookie dough into tablespoon balls and place on prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Gently flatten the dough balls with the palm of your hand. Bake cookies for 10 minutes or until they are set and golden brown around the edges. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and cool completely.

    I’m a huge fan of Almond Breeze – I just made an “almond gouda” cheese sauce using their milk and it was amazing! Love this post – I prefer vegan cookies actually, I never feel gross afterwards.

    Look wonderful, but I can’t eat chocolate. Would this work with additional 1/2 c cranberries in place of the chocolate?

    • Two Peas replied: — October 25th, 2013 @ 11:23 am

      Yes! You can leave out the chocolate and they will still be super tasty! Enjoy!

    Would love to make these….can I use Quinoa flour instead of the whole wheat?

    wish someone out there would start using more gluten free flours…
    I’m trying to find information on how to use them, what can be substituted….when I need to use xanthum gum and when not, etc.

    Megan {Country Cleaver} — November 5, 2013 @ 11:13 am

    These are vegan? No way!! I am always leary of vegan baking because of the no-egg factor – but these look incredible and so fluffy!! Caleb is after my own heart – I’m a dried cranberry fiend, too :)

    I used buckwheat flour for my gluten intolerant person that always feels so deprived. They almost look like a chocolate gingerbread or biscotti. Next time I will add a little more sugar if I use buckwheat flour. I think they would have been delicious with a gluten free flour mixture and so easy. The hardest part was getting the almond butter out of the jar.

    I used almond flour and agave instead of white flour and brown sugar (2 things I avoid). They were so yummy! Soft, moist. And sugar and gluten free! Thanks for sharing!
