CRANBERRY-NUT CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES


I was in the mood to bake so searched for some healthy baking ideas and came across these cookies. I had all the ingredients in already that are used in the recipe so that was handy. You have to bare in mind that you have to leave the mixture in the fridge for 8 hours or overnight. It's meant to make 36 little biscuits but as I was too impatient to do more than one batch I just made big ones! So they would be a low 75 calories each but obviously will be more if you double the amount you put together for one cookie.

  • Ingredients:
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour (about 3 1/3 ounces)
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour (about 3 1/2 ounces)
  • 3/4 cup regular oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped walnuts
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons semisweet chocolate minichips
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 5 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • large egg
  • large egg white

Preperation:
Lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours, oats, baking powder, and the next 5 ingredients in a large bowl.
Combine sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add honey, vanilla, egg, and egg white; beat well. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture; beat at low speed until well blended. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
Preheat oven to 180°.
Drop batter by tablespoonfuls onto a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. Bake at 180° for 10 minutes. Cool 2 minutes on the tray. Remove from tray and cool completely on wire racks.

Hope you enjoy them!
