2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2. In a bowl, combine sugar, butter, and molasses. Stir in egg equivalents and vanilla.
3. In another bowl, combine oats, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.
4. Thoroughly stir the oat mixture into the sugar mixture. If the mixture seems too dry, add in a bit of water. Stir in cranberries, chocolate chips, and walnuts.

Source of recipe: Modified from Christmas Cookies & Candies Recipe Cards. I make them for work events where I want to make lots of cookies, so I haven't tried to cut the recipe in half for an otherwise reasonable amount of cookies. They're one of the most popular cookies I make.

This is a nice twist on oatmeal cookies!  My hubby wanted something sweet and I found this!  He's pretty pleased    :)>>>  I used the apple sauce as the egg replacer, too.  Worked great!  And I used vegetable shortening that I had rather than the soy butter.  Followed the rest of the recipe exactly, except I didn't use walnuts, and  I didn't need the extra water/milk.  Was not dry at all!  I also did half brown sugar and half sugar cane sugar because the sugar cane sugar is expensive.  Thank you for sharing!!!


I love this recipe. My husband loves the craisins and chocolate chips in them. I halved the recipe and it gave me about16 medium-sized cookies. Used applesauce for the egg-replacer and blackstrap molasses. Will be making these often  ::)
