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.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup white whole wheat flour

  • 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

Instructions

  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.
  3. 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.
  4. Turn the mixer to low and add the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. Stir in the oats, dried cranberries, and chocolate chips.
  5. 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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. What’s the nutritional information on these? I’m watching my fat and caloric intake and would love to know this please!

  6. Anyone know how long these cookies can be stored in a tupperware container? I want to make them and ship them to my cousin, and it is usually 2-3 days shipping time.

    1. I would pulse the cranberries if you use fresh due to the size since they’re going into cookies and not a bread.ย
