Preheat your oven to 350. Cream together the two sugars, the butter and the egg. Sift the dry ingredients in one by one, mixing as you go. Fold in the oats, cranberries, and chocolate. Take large rounded tablespoons of dough and roll into balls. Place them on the prepared cookie sheet (I use parchment paper but no stick coconut oil spray will do, too).
Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the tops start to turn golden. They will still be a little raw when you take them out, but leave them to finish cooking on the hot cookie sheet for ten minutes or so.
I am a mom of two and wife to a martial arts school owner, full-time social media professional and avid cook and gardener. I love creating recipes and involving my kids in the process. The food we cook is usually dairy-free and gluten-free, and sometimes paleo, but we make exceptions (ahem, sourdough bread). The “hippie” part of this blog comes into play in the ingredients we use—I’m pretty vigilant about the health of my family and you could even call me “crunchy.” The “modern” part is that I am busy! You won’t catch me making my own nut milk or churning butter (not that there’s anything wrong with that). I’m more than happy to take the shortcuts provided by our lovely grocery stores and online shopping —especially in the midst of this global pandemic.
