Cranberry Walnut-Oatmeal Cookies

I made these cookies several weeks ago but for some reasons I completely forgot about them and never posted the recipe. Yesterday I spent the whole day in bed sick. Something I had for dinner the night before must have not been completely healthy and safe…
I feel good today tho and I am completely ready to share with you this cookie recipe!

Don’t forget to come to Plus Wine tomorrow evening at 6.30 pm!


  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/3 cup chopped toasted walnuts plus 3 tbsp
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries plus 3 tbsp

Cream butter with brown and white sugar. Add in the egg and beat well. Add the vanilla extract

In a bowl combine flour, oats, cinnamon, salt and baking powder

Pour the dry ingredients into the wet one

and mix well until they are all well incorporated. Next up, chop up 1/3 cup walnuts

and measure 1/3 cup cranberries

Add the cranberries to the cookie batter

then add the walnuts too and mix well

Scoop dough up by rounded tablespoons and shape into balls. Flat them slightly.

Mix the reserved nuts and cranberries together

and press a few gently onto the top of each cookie

Bake at 180 C (375 F) for about 10-12 min.

Let your cookies cool down, then enjoy!
