The Ever So Scrumptious Vegan Coconut Cranberry Cookies!

So most of us are on the go in the morning and often times grab that quick granola bar or nothing at all.  These are one of my favorite grab and go snacks or breakfasts.  They are so yummy they will leave you craving more but also very nutritious!

  • 1 c whole wheat flour
  • 1 c whole oats
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4-1/2 c all natural granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseeds
  • 2 tsp cinammon
  • 1 tsp all spice
  • 1 c no sugar added applesauce
  • 2 tbsp of safflower oil
  • 1/4-1/2 c of shredded or toasted coconut
  • 1/4-1/2 c cranberries
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, evenly mix whole wheat flour, whole oats, baking powder, baking soda, natural granulated sugar, ground flaxseeds, cinammon, and all spice.
  3. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, add applesauce and safflower oil in well.  Mix evenly.
  4. Add coconut and cranberries.
  5. Place wax paper on cookie sheet (if you don't have wax paper coat sheets with safflower oil).  Make 1/2" diameter balls with the cookie dough; cookie dough will be sticky, if you have a small cookie scoop use that!
  6. Bake for 12-14 minutes until cookies are golden brown and are cooked thru the middle.  Makes 12-16 cookies, depending on size of cookie.
  7. To keep the cookies most, once cooled enclose in a plastic bag.
