These cookies are sweet, but not too sweet, chewy, and they have the most delicious bursts of flavour from the dried tart cranberries and rich dark chocolate chunks. Plus, I love that the cranberries make them feel festive! Only just over a month to go until Christmas now, it’s creeping up fast…maybe you could leave Santa one of these cookies on Xmas eve this year! Christmas is the time for cookies after all. Alllllll the cookies!
Don’t forget these are totally guilt free as they’re gluten, dairy and refined sugar free so you can enjoy more than one 😉

- 1/2 mashed banana
- 1 cup GF flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp pink Himalayan salt
- 1/3 cup melted coconut oil (I recommend Vita Coco Coconut Oil as its cold pressed and raw)
- 1/3 cup Sweet Freedom Fruit Syrup or pure maple syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cup oats,
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- 30g dark chocolate chips (I used raw & refined sugar free dark chocolate)
- Preheat your oven to gas mark 4/350F and line a baking tray with baking paper.
- Add the dry ingredients to a bowl and stir until combined.
- Add your wet ingredients (mashed banana, vanilla, melted coconut oil, and syrup) to a food processor and process until well combined.
- Add the dry ingredients and process again until the mixture is dough like and sticks together when pressed. If you think the mixture is too runny add more oats gradually until desired consistency forms.
- Stir in the cranberries and dark chocolate chips.
- Scoop out about 1/2 tbsp dough and roll between the palms of your hands to form a ball. Place it onto your lined baking tray and flatten down with the back of a spoon. Repeat until you have finished the dough.
- Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the cookies become golden brown around the edges. Remove from the oven and let them cool on the baking tray for around 15 minutes before removing. Enjoy :)
