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.

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.

  1. I was so excited to see this recipe on Pinterest, but I just want to caution about using the word healthy here. When I put the recipe into caloriecount’s recipe analyzer it said they have about the same amount of calories per cookie as a recipe with butter and regular milk- about 154 per cookie for these vs 147 for traditional. Granted these cookies are lower in cholesterol, but I wouldn’t consider them healthy- they’re still a once-in-a-while treat.

  2. These cookies are amazing for having no butter or eggs–great flavor! I used white chocolate chips instead of milk chocolate and they were very pretty!

  3. Would it be possible to use whole wheat flour for these cookies? I can’t seem to find white whole wheat flour anywhere!

  4. What’s the nutrition facts of these cookies? ( almond cranberry oatmeal cookies )
    They sound very healthy, but it would be nice to have the facts. Thanks.

  5. I baked double recipe of this for an event that got postponed until for next week. Can I freeze baked cookies for a week later consumption?

  6. Many thanks for this amazing recipe. I call these WOH cookies. Whatever’s On Hand. I have made them three times now. All three times there was some change or another. Almond butter vs. peanut butter. With chocolate chips, without. With almonds or with walnuts. Three versions, three different kinds of wonderful. What I love though is that even with variation these cookies end up super yummy and super healthy. I also love that they are not super sweet. Anyways, I could just go on and on but I really just wanted to say thank you. (Yay for Vegan!!)

  7. Just made these for the first time today and they were absolutely amazing! Definitely recommend making these if you have even a small amount of time!

  8. 5 stars
    I used coconut milk and butter that I had available and they were delicious! Not too sweet too! I think they spread more because of it and the texture was very chewy 🙂
