Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies

Servings: 7-8 cookies

Ingredients

  • ⅓ cup honey
  • ¼ cup of salted butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 cup instant rolled oats
  • ½ cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ cup whole cranberries
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips, optional

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 350°C.
    Grease a baking sheet or silicone baking mat and place it in a baking tray.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the honey, butter, egg and almond extract.
  • In another bowl, mix the flour, cranberries, chocolate chips, baking powder and rolled oats.
    Add the dry ingredients into the honey-egg-butter mixture and mix well.
    Using a medium-large cookie scoop or a tablespoon, drop a heaping tbsp of the cookie batter, per cookie, onto the baking sheet in two rows.
    Make sure there is enough gap between cookies.
    Using your fingertips gently flatten the dough to give it the shape of a cookie.
    Bake the cookies for 10 minutes in the oven.
    If done, take out of the oven and cool for a few minutes.
    Serve the cookies warm along with a glass of milk.
