I set out to make a healthy grain cookie, resulting in these yummy and healthy coconut cranberry oatmeal cookies!

I always enjoy eating grain biscuits from the store. They are nice and crunchy and you feel like you are still eating a healthy cookie. Not entirely true of course. That's why I set out to make a healthy and, above all, tasty grain cookie, resulting in these healthy and crunchy coconut cranberry oatmeal cookies. A not too sweet oatmeal cookie, with coconut and cranberries, which give the cookie a nice texture and extra sweet and sour taste. You can also vary with chopped nuts or other dried fruit, such as apricots. These cookies are not only a healthy snack, but also easy to make!

Is it okay to be a little unhealthy? Then add a tablespoon of extra honey and some pieces of dark chocolate (or dip the cookies in melted dark chocolate): pure goodness!

Make sure you use a good tablespoon in size, otherwise the dough will be too dry. One tablespoon is equivalent to 15 ml, so if you are in doubt, you can do itconvert.

I set out to make a healthy grain cookie, resulting in these yummy and healthy coconut cranberry oatmeal cookies!

20 minutes

12

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons of honey
  • 4 tablespoons of chocolate oil
  • 75 grams of oatmeal
  • 75 grams of (spelt) flour
  • 50 grams of grated coconut
  • 50 grams of dried cranberries
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Take a frying pan and toast the oatmeal for 2 minutes, which gives a nice extra deep flavor to the cookies.
  3. Take the food processor and grind the roasted oatmeal into a finer flake. Add all the dry ones and mix together. Then add the melted coconut oil and honey and mix together again.
  4. Make balls from the dough with the diameter of a 2 euro coin and press them flat on the baking paper. Wet your hands with water in between so that the dough sticks together better. The dough crumbles a bit because of the cranberries, so you have to put them back in.
  5. In the photo below this recipe you can see what my cookies looked like before they went into the oven. You can easily flatten them a bit to make them extra crunchy!
  6. Bake the cookies for about 15 minutes until golden brown and cool completely before eating.

TIP:Swap the cranberries for chocolate chips, so delicious.

  1. hi, it looks nice. I also want to bake them, but at what degrees do you set the oven?

    To answer

    1. Hi, at 175 degrees! Enjoy your healthy treat!

      To answer

  2. Question...how many calories are in 16 cookies

    To answer

  3. Mmm…. Looks delicious! Get started quickly. I just replace the granberries with raisins, because there are no granberries, that should be possible, right?!

    To answer

    1. That's absolutely possible! Raisins, cranberries or pieces of chocolate, all delicious in it!

      To answer

  4. They are tasty, with ginger☺

    To answer

    1. Also a good one! Did you use baking ginger?

      To answer

  5. I'm making them now. However, my 'dough' was very sticky. I used coconut oil, 50 grams as directed. What could have gone wrong. Too much honey? It didn't give me flat cookies and now they have become lumps. In 18 minutes I'll know if they taste good.

    To answer

    1. Hi Femke, as promised, I made the recipe myself and adjusted it slightly. A little more honey, but especially a little more oil/butter to counteract the dryness that causes your cookies to break. Make balls from the dough and place them on the baking paper with a spoon, then moisten your hands with water and flatten them nicely. This way it doesn't stick to your hands and they are less likely to fall together before baking!

      To answer

      1. Thank you! I'm going to try them again! They are indeed very tasty!

        To answer

        1. I'm curious to hear what you think of it now! 🙂

          To answer

  6. How “flat” do you make the cookies? They are quite dry for me. Add more honey or more water or..? I still like them 😊

    To answer

    1. Hi Lonneke, I also made the recipe myself and adjusted it slightly. A little more honey, but especially a little more oil or butter to combat dryness 🙂 . In the photo I took the cookies are not very flat, but recently I made them a lot flatter, which makes them even crispier. Recommended!

      To answer

  7. Hey, how long can you keep the cookies? And what is the best way to store/keep them tasty for as long as possible?

    To answer

    1. Hi Pien, you can store the cookies for at least 1 to 2 weeks. Store them in an airtight container so they stay crispy for as long as possible!

      To answer

  8. Delicious! I added agave syrup and sugar beet syrup (I'd like to try it out), and added Maca powder when it was a bit too moist (I had it on hand 😉 ).
    Mmm, so delicious!!

    To answer

    1. Ohhh what a cool variation! Enjoy it!

      To answer

  9. With ginger is also very tasty, or with sesame seeds...light brown and black!!
    Sugar beet syrup is also delicious... I try everything!
    Oh yes...they are good raw too!! Roll in sesame seeds or coconut, store in refrigerator…mmmm!

    To answer

    1. Super fun ideas! It also seems very tasty with ginger.

      To answer

  10. Hi Carlijn, you should always heat coconut oil because you can only really bake with it in liquid form. I normally don't heat the honey, this could indeed cause your dough to be too wet. Do the cookies spread too far when you make mounds of them on the baking paper? It is also not a 'typical' cookie dough that you make. 🙂

    To answer

    1. Hi Hi,
      Here too, the dough remains very sticky. You say not to heat the honey, but the recipe says so. I wonder how they will turn out. I had to add flour... otherwise there was nothing to do with it.

      To answer

      1. Hi, that depends on whether you use butter or oil.

        To answer

  11. Can it also be done in a combination microwave?

    To answer

    1. Hi Danieck, this is of course possible on the oven setting, but I personally find the result with baking always a bit less from a combination. But who knows, you might have a great combination! 🙂

      To answer

  12. Maybe a tip:
    I fill a small filling ring (with which you can place a nice tower of food on a plate) with a small scoop of the mixture on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Then I tamp it down with the pestle of the mortar. Conclusion, no dirty hands and nice round cookies.

    To answer

    1. Haha, what a great idea!

      To answer

      1. And they are (too) delicious, I will definitely make them again.

        To answer

        1. Great to hear, I find them addictive too!

          To answer

  13. Hi,
    I made the cookies with coconut oil but couldn't make them into balls. Seemed too dry.
    Then I put it in the shape and pressed it, I'm curious... Smells delicious already!!

    To answer

    1. I'm curious what you thought of the result!

      To answer

      1. They are delicious! Made it again later and also made the date strips, they are also super tasty!

        To answer

        1. Oh nice! I love both recipes so much!

          To answer

  14. Hi Marlies, how crazy! I have made them with butter a few times myself. Shame!

    To answer

  15. Made the cookies with my daughter today. Everything according to your recipe and it worked! The dough was greasy and sticky, but after baking….mmmm….so tasty! We only got 9 cookies and they were gone quickly. So soon we will be baking again 😊 greetings, Aleksandra and Amy

    To answer

    1. Aaaah great! The dough is indeed a bit crazy sticky, but the result is sooo delicious! One of my favorite cookies!

      To answer

  16. Made the cookies yesterday. The cookies were a little burnt.
    I used liquid flower honey. And in the middle of the oven, on the electric oven setting 175 degrees. Maybe it's the honey, I thought. Which honey do you use? Which oven setting?

    To answer

    1. Hi Jeanette, how annoying! I also use an electric oven and liquid flower honey, so that makes perfect sense. Maybe your oven is secretly working a little faster than it indicates? I use an oven thermometer to check that.

      To answer

  17. Just tried to make it, but the dough remains very dry.. but I added some more coconut oil, but this didn't really seem to help.. In the end I made kind of piles and put them in the oven.. I'm curious!
    Any idea how the dough is so dry?

    To answer

    1. Hi Indira, I'm sorry that the dough remained too dry. Have you melted the oil and honey together? Maybe you used a bit too generous tablespoons? 😉

      To answer

  18. I just made the cookies and can't keep my hands off them. DELICIOUS
    I made them with maple syrup instead of honey, spelled flour instead of flour, and raisins instead of cranberries. I saved the recipe. This tastes like more!!!

    To answer

    1. How nice Hettie! I like them so much too. And thanks for the good variation tips!

      To answer

  19. A really delicious recipe! At first I thought I had used too much coconut oil and that they would not be crispy, but on the contrary. Wonderfully crispy. I used spelled flour instead of regular flour and half as much grated coconut. Soon also making with chocolate chip and cocoa. Can't wait already. Thank you for this recipe. Eating cookies responsibly ^_^

    To answer

    1. Oh absolutely great! What you're planning sounds great, I'll remember that too 😀

      To answer

  20. Hoi,
    Can you also make these cookies with spelled flakes instead of oatmeal?

    To answer

    1. Sure! Nice variation 🙂

      To answer

  21. I don't get nice cookies from it, so I just made a plate of it. It's not too dry but not too wet either, very strange. I also wet my hands to make balls, but unfortunately.
    I wonder how it will taste like this.

    To answer

    1. How crazy! How did they turn out?

      To answer

  22. Hallo,

    What a delicious, easy recipe this is!! Wow... I made it and let a number of people taste it, now this is definitely worth repeating!
    They're gone so I have to make new ones again...

    Could I also do this with sunflower oil instead of butter?

    To answer

    1. Thank you! I wouldn't easily make it with sunflower oil, but you can always try. I'd love to hear your findings 😀

      To answer

  23. Just baked the cookies and they look fine, but unfortunately the raisins I used were burned during baking.
    Did I do something wrong?

    To answer

    1. Hi Linda, how rotten! That sounds like the oven was just a little too high or the tray was too far up in the oven?

      To answer

  24. I baked cookies, only they fell apart.
    And I didn't look carefully that I had to get my hands wet
    What can I do next time so that they stay intact
    Do you have any tips for me?
    So that next time it stays intact when baking.

    To answer

    1. Hi! Did they fall apart before baking or only afterwards? By wetting your hands you can roll it into firmer balls and it will stick together better.

      To answer

      1. After firing there were large cracks and fell apart
        During the next round of trials, I used almost half as much honey and coconut oil
        Then they stay nice and intact
        And I had also overlooked the fact that I had to wet my hands
        Then things got better with making cookies

        To answer

  25. Hoi,
    I have made this recipe many times. Today again, but the batter remained super soggy. I checked with my print from last year and I read that it contains 150 grams of oatmeal, instead of 50 grams as stated here. The amount of honey has also doubled. I like the version with more oatmeal better.
    ps I also made the salted caramel…..super tasty.
    Greetings, Annette

    To answer

    1. Hi Annette, thanks for your response! I have indeed adjusted the recipe slightly because it remained too dry for many people. I'm going to test it again soon 🙂

      To answer

  26. I'm also making them, with a grated apple added, I'm curious

    To answer

    1. I'm very curious to see how they turned out! Hopefully the apple isn't too moist?

      To answer

  27. The cookies are in the oven as we speak, I'm curious! I'm just wondering how you got 16 of those large cookies out of the batter. For me there were only 8 if I kept the same size as in the photo.

    To answer

  28. Recipe looks great, would love to try making these cookies. I'm just not allowed to have gluten and I'm also allergic to spelt. Do you have a tip for replacing the flour? Can this be done by grinding the oatmeal into a 'flour'?

    To answer

    1. That's certainly possible!

      To answer

  29. Hi,

    I just tried to bake the cookies. I could barely make balls out of it: they fell apart. I had to skip the flattening. How come?

    Gr. Sarah

    To answer

    1. Hi Sarah, I also made them again tonight because of your response. It didn't bother me at all. Maybe you added too many dry ingredients?

      To answer

  30. Hoi,
    Question: I used 150 grams of flakes and made the rest of the recipe according to your recipe. Because it was in your response.
    Now it is very dry and difficult to make into balls. They are heaps.
    What's going wrong here?
    Greetings

    To answer

    1. Hi, because you doubled the amount of oatmeal, you also need to add more honey and coconut oil.

      To answer

  31. Hi, my dough was way too dry. Think too little oil or honey. It does smell wonderful. See if they will be cookies or something for yogurt.

    To answer

    1. I actually think so too. How was the result?

      To answer

  32. Hello, I have a question! Do you make these cookies with instant oatmeal or with 'rolled oats'?

    To answer

    1. Rolled oats 🙂

      To answer

  33. The recipe has been online for a while, but today I'm trying it for the first time. I was having a lot of trouble making nice cookies (they were falling apart) until I grabbed my serving ring. Press the mixture into the ring and onto the baking tray with the accompanying pusher. Maybe a good tip. They are not out of the oven yet so I hope they will be good soon. At least it smells nice.

    To answer

    1. I hear it often, but strangely enough I have never had a problem with a dry batter with this recipe. I'm curious what you thought of it!

      To answer

  34. Made it today but unfortunately also suffered from batter falling apart. In the end I added an egg for binding. It worked great by the way, but I'm still curious how you can do it without it? They taste good by the way 😊

    To answer

    1. Hi Alexandra, thanks for your message! I made them again tonight because of your response and the one below and had no problems myself. I even added some extra flour. Are you sure you're using a good tablespoon to measure the honey and coconut oil? I'll probably make a video of it soon because there are so many (different) questions about it 🙂

      To answer

    2. Were the cookies nice and crunchy with the egg, or more chewy? Curious!

      To answer

  35. Made the cookies today. The dough was so dry that I couldn't do anything with it. Next time I'll use more honey and coconut oil.

    To answer

    1. Hi Alette, super annoying! Are you sure you used the right tablespoon size? That is equal to 15 ml. I always make balls from the dough and then flatten them on the baking tray, pressing the loose crumbs firmly together. This comes together completely during baking. I'll probably dedicate a video to it because of all the questions 🙂

      To answer

  36. Just made them, but they turned out more muesli-like bars. I read something about butter in the comments, but I don't see this listed in the ingredients? Maybe I missed this?

    To answer

    1. That's strange! I guess they didn't get crispy then? You can also replace the coconut oil with butter, but that should make no difference. Did you happen to add less honey?
