Craisy Oatmeal Cookies

Here's another option for a less sweet cookie for breakfast on the go. I was expecting a crispier cookie, but they turned out to be very chewy. The sweetness of the coconut nicely balanced the tartness of the dried cranberries. I skipped adding rosemary and did not miss it.

Recipe is courtesy of Food Network's Guy Fieri.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks), at room temperature
1 1/4 cups dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes
3/4 cup dried cranberries
2 cups quick oats
1/2 teaspoon fresh rosemary finely chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, sift together flour, soda, powder, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar with a mixer. Mix in honey and vanilla until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, until fully incorporated. Mix in coconut, dried cranberries, oats and rosemary. Fold dry ingredients into butter mixture. Form into balls, approximately 2 tablespoons. Place 2 inches apart on parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake until cookies turn golden, 13 to 15 minutes. Remove from oven to cooling rack. Let sit 5 minutes in the pan before transferring to a rack to cool completely.
Yields 24 cookies.


  1. I love the combination of cranberry, oat and honey. This is my kind of cookies.

  2. This looks great especially as I have dried cranberries leftover from christmas. Can you taste the rosemary?
