Healthy Dark Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

Healthy Dark Chocolate Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

Healthy cookies. That’s not an oxymoron.

Well, these may be as healthy as cookies can get.

Yield: 2 1/2 dozen cookies


1.5 ounces all-purpose flour (about 1/3 cup)
1.5 ounces whole wheat flour (about 1/3 cup)
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground vanilla (or vanilla extract)
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 cup dried unsweetened cranberries
4 ounces extra dark chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine flours, oats, baking soda, salt, and vanilla in a medium bowl.
In a separate bowl, mix butter and sugar in a large bowl (or mixer bowl) until smooth.
Slowly add dry ingredients into the butter mixture, beating until well-blended.
Add the egg and mix until incorporated.
Remove from mixer. Add cranberries and chocolate chips and stir by hand until combined.
Drop dough by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto baking sheets lined with silpats or parchment paper.
Bake for 12 minutes, rotating the sheets midway through the baking process.
Cool on wire racks.

    "If you want to WIN more in life you are in the right place my friend! I am blessed and privileged everyday to help people WIN more in life.

    I got my start as the youngest Director of Strength & Conditioning at the Division I level at Oral Roberts University and have been blessed to COACH professional athletes from the NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, and WNBA through Dynamic Sports Development. As an ENTREPRENEUR I then started Bootcamp Tulsa to help women WIN in their Fitness, Nutrition & in Life. On a daily basis I now run our Non-Profit, 501 (c) (3), Fit First Responders serving those that serve us everyday, our Police Officers, Firefighters, Medics and national Guard.

    If I'm not helping people WIN through my Performance Coaching you will find me motivating people on stage through my MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING in churches, companies, universities and athletic organizations. I even took some of that motivation and combined it with a winning game plan to author a few books. I love helping people WIN but there is nothing I'm more passionate about then being a FATHER to my beautiful daughter and a HUSBAND to my hot wife."
