I must admit, I am definitely not a trained baker. Baking is a science, and vegan baking is a whole other skill.  I was craving Cranberry Oatmeal cookies and wanted to make them super healthy, so I thought I’d give it that ole college try.  After researching dozens of vegan cookie recipes and after 3 tries, I finally did it!  These cookies are “the bomb!”  The search is over!  I don’t think you’ll find a more delicious and healthy plant-based cookie than this one. 

Equipment needed: Cooling rack


  • 2 cups gluten free rolled oats (not quick cooking)
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup diced apple, pureed in food processor
  • ½ cup dark maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, alcohol free
  • 1 cup Almond Butter


Make these delicious cookies!

Preheat oven to 350℉

  1. In a large bowl add oats, baking soda and dried cranberries, and give it a stir to combine.
  2. Add in wet ingredients:  pureed diced apple, maple syrup and vanilla.  Stir thoroughly until the cranberries are evenly distributed.
  3. Roll the dough into (12)  2-inch round balls and place on a 12” x 17” parchment lined sheet-pan, and place in the preheated oven.
  4. Bake cookies until golden brown, about 15-18 minutes, checking after 15 minutes.  
  5. Remove the pan from the oven, and carefully place the cookies on a cooling rack, to cool completely and serve with a smile!
