Oat, Cranberry, & Seeds Cookies

I am one of those people who does not like eating oats in the morning, oatmeal specifically. It’s just too mushy and bland for my taste. I tried adding some chocolate and bananas in it to make it taste better, but I still didn’t like it’s texture. However, I still want to eat oats since it’s been known to be packed with fiber, and it helps you feel fuller longer. So what does a dessert-loving girl do? Put oats in cookies, of course! 🍪 If you want to give it a try, the recipe I used is down below 😊 It is based on livewellbakeoften’s recipe, with some tweaks.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ½ cup butter
  • 90 g brown sugar (approx. ½ cup)
  • 60 g white sugar (approx ¼ cup)
  • * Brown sugar makes cookies chewy, while white sugar makes them crisp. Adjust the ratio of sugar based on your preference. This recipe makes chewy cookies with a crisp bottom.
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 150 g oats (approx 1 ½ cups)
  • 80 g dried cranberries (can substitute with raisins, or other dried berries)
  • 40 g seeds/nuts of your choice (I used a mixture of pumpkin, sunflower, and sesame seeds)

Instructions:

  1. In a bowl, mix flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.
  2. In another (big) bowl, use the kneading or paddle attachment of your mixer (if available) to cream the butter, brown sugar, white sugar until well-combined. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix.
  3. Gradually mix in the flour mixture. Add in the oats, dried cranberries, and seeds/nuts. Mix until fully combined.
  4. Cover the cookie dough with cling wrap and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  5. Pre-heat the oven at 175 ℃. Line two large baking sheets with baking/parchment paper.
  6. Once dough is chilled, scoop 1-1.5 tablespoons and roll into a ball. Place the ball into the baking sheet and lightly press it down with the back of a spoon.
  7. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until top is set. Remove from the oven and let it rest in the baking sheet for 5 minutes. Let the cookies finish cooling in a wire rack.

Enjoy! 💜
