Cranberry Oat Cookies


Hi, there. How are you today? I woke up and felt the need to bake – it’s been too long. As soon as I checked my blog posts I realised it’s been ages since I have posted a cookie recipe. So, today I bring you my Cranberry Oat Cookies.

Although I haven’t posted a new recipe since my last Cookie post, that doesn’t mean I have abstained from baking cookies. Rather it means I’ve baked Cookies I’ve already posted. Confused yet? So I baked a batch of Cranberry Oat Cookies.  I think these may be my favourite Cookies today!

As a result of a mash-up of two previous recipes I’ve posted – Almond And Cranberry Cookies  and Apricot Oat Crumble Cookies  I created a new recipe.

Since I really fancied Cranberries, Oats and Almonds I made these new cookies, throwing in all the ingredients hoping they would turn out ok. Oooh they are so much more than ok they are scrumptious.

Three biscuits with a glass of milk.

Recipe :  Makes 18-20 Cranberry Oat Cookies

150g/5oz  Caster Sugar

225g/8oz  Unsalted Butter – room temperature

1  Large Egg Yolk

1tsp  Vanilla Extract – I use Nielsen-Massey 

1/2tsp  Almond Extract

1/4tsp  Sea Salt – I use Maldon

175g/6oz  Plain White Flour

175g/6oz  Oats – not quick cook

100g/4oz Dried Cranberries

50g/2oz  Flaked Almonds

Method :

Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan oven, has mark 4, 350F

Making And Shaping The Cookies:

  • First of all, unless using non stick, line 2 baking trays with baking parchment.
  • Into a large bowl add the butter, sugar and salt.  Beat together until pale and fluffy – I used an electric whisk, a stand mixer with the paddle attachment fixed is fine.
  • Add the egg yolk and vanilla/almond extracts and thoroughly mix in.
  • Next add the flour, oats, cranberries and flaked almonds.  Mix until just combined.
  • Take about a heaped tablespoon of the Cookie dough and roll into a ball using your hands.
  • Place the Cranberry Oat Cookie dough balls onto the baking tray.

  • Using your fingers gently  press down to lightly flatten them.

Gently press down on the cookie dough balls so they just become flattened.

Baking The Cookies

  • Place the cookies into the middle and lower part of the oven.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown.

Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown. Then remove from the oven.

  • As soon as the cookies are golden, remove from oven and allow to fully cool on the baking sheets.  This allows the Cranberry Oat Cookies to firm up.

Store the cold cookies in an airtight container and eat within a week.

Since one of my best friends has been unwell recently, a fresh delivery of Cookies will be just the boost she needs. As a dear friend, who also has a sweet tooth I know she will enjoy these. So I can stop by for a cuppa and chat while sharing these cookies. Because food always tastes better when it’s shared! Who will you share your Cookies with?

So, whatever you are making, baking and creating in your kitchens, have fun preparing and sharing your feast.

  1. You are right Chris. It doesn’t take very much time. I seem to have got out of the habit lately. I’m going to fix that by baking these cookies this week.
