Cranberry Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

Leave a comment


by Renoodle
2 ½ Tablespoons flax meal

6 Tablespoons water

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

1-2 pinches cinnamon
1 pinch nutmeg

1 cup (2 sticks) Earth Balance margarine, room temp

1-3 teaspoons vanilla

1 cup granulated white sugar

1 cup packed brown sugar

2 cups oats

1 cup dried cranberries

1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat your oven to 400F (204C). Mix the flax and water in a small bowl and let it gel up.

Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and spices in a medium mixing bowl.

Beat the Earth Balance in a separate medium mixing bowl until softened (but not liquidy). Beat in the flax meal mixture until well combined followed by the vanilla then the sugar. Mix in the flour with a rubber spatula then mix on low for 5 seconds. The batter will be thick.

Stir in the oats, cranberries and pecans. Drop by the rounded Tablespoon onto a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet, roll into balls and place 2 inches apart. (Try to keep the dough cool in between baking sessions. I keep mine in the fridge)

Bake for 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool the cookies on their sheets for 1 to 2 minutes then transfer to cookie racks and cool completely (or eat while hot!)
