Healthy Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies


Howie of Venice, Florida shared the recipe with us in the Bella Viva Bake off!


1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1 1/2 cups Quaker Oats
1/2 cup apple sauce
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup dried cranberries


In a medium bowl combine first six ingredients. Add apple sauce, egg, vanilla and cranberries. Stir vigorously until dry ingredients are moistened.

Drop approximately 1 1/2 tablespoons of dough onto cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Slightly flatten down dough so it isn’t too thick.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake for 14-15 minutes or until done. Remove cookies from sheet and place on wire rack to cool.
