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.
