Healthy White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies
Wonderfully chewy oatmeal cookies studded with tart dried cranberries and sweet white chocolate, these healthy white chocolate cranberry cookies are essential for your holiday baking list!
- 1 ½ cups rolled oats
- ¼ cup whole wheat flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 3 tablespoons melted butter
- 3 tablespoons skimmed milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2.5oz/70g white chocolate
- 1oz/30g dried cranberries
Preheat the oven to 350F/175C and line a baking tray with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. In a medium-size bowl, stir together the oats, flour, baking soda, both sugars and cinnamon.
Pour in the melted butter, milk and vanilla and stir until a dry dough forms.
Roughly chop up the white chocolate and dried cranberries and stir them into the batter.
Divide the batter into 16 pieces (that's about 1 tablespoon per piece) and roll each piece into a ball. Lightly flatten each ball between your hands and evenly space out onto the lined baking tray.
Bake in the preheated oven for 14 minutes, until the edges of the cookies are just beginning to brown. (Don't leave them in any longer, otherwise they'll burn!) Leave the cookies to cool to room temperature on the baking tray before eating or storing inside a plastic container.
