Feel free to make these cookies with raisins or chopped dates instead of cranberries.


  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup granola
  • 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped dried cranberries


Heat oven to 350°.

Combine flour, sugars, baking soda, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon in a bowl. In a mixing bowl, beat butter, egg, and orange juice together. Slowly beat in dry the flour mixture until well mixed. Stir in granola, rolled oats, and cranberries.

Drop dough by teaspoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet about 1 1/2 to 2 inches apart. Smooth out the tops of the mounds lightly with fingers. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned. CLet cool in pan for 5 minutes, then remove to a rack and let cool completely.

I found this recipe and it was exactly what I was looking for. Cookies turned out great and got rave reviews. Was an excellent breakfast for the morning after the party as well! I love the versatility of this recipe: I substituted orange juice for grapefruit juice (because i had that on hand) , and both my oatmeal and my granola had raisins, almonds and other good things inside. I added more sliced almonds as well as craisins. I am going to be adding this recipe to my box - thank you!
