Vegan Cranberry Pecan Oatmeal Cookies

These Vegan Cranberry Pecan Oatmeal Cookies are one of the standards of our Christmas baking celebrations. They are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. The crunchy pecans and tart-sweetness of the cranberries really make a complex and well rounded flavor and texture. They are really, really delicious!

Vegan Cranberry Pecan Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

2 ½ Tablespoons golden flax meal
6 Tablespoons water

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1-2 pinches cinnamon
1 pinch nutmeg

1 cup (2 sticks) Earth Balance margarine, room temp

1-3 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup granulated white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar

2 cups oats
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup chopped pecans

1)
Preheat your oven to 400F (204C). Mix the flax and water in a small bowl and let it gel up.

2)
Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and spices in a medium mixing bowl.

3)
Beat the Earth Balance in a separate medium mixing bowl until softened (but not liquidy). Beat in the flax meal mixture until well combined followed by the vanilla then the sugar. Mix in the flour with a rubber spatula then mix on low for 5 seconds. The batter will be thick.

4)
Stir in the oats, cranberries and pecans. Drop by the rounded Tablespoon onto a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet, roll into balls and place 2 inches apart. (Try to keep the dough cool in between baking sessions. I keep mine in the fridge) Bake for 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool the cookies on their sheets for 1 to 2 minutes then transfer to cookie racks and cool completely (or eat while hot!). This recipe makes 15 to 20 Vegan Cranberry Pecan Oatmeal Cookies.

You will not find a better cookie. Drop what you are doing and make these now. Crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside. Cookie perfection. I made these with the vegan butter recipe from this site. I love that recipe too and it worked perfectly here.

Thank you Renoodle, a really nice recipe.

As a cookie first-timer, I really should have timed them, as I slightly over-cooked them (they harden a lot outside the oven!). Very good anyway.

Wonderful. I used only I cup sugar. Half cup sesame oil and half cup earth balance. Used walnuts instead of pecans. So yumm! Crispy and soft. Kept in oven almost 20 min cuz we like them a bit brown. Careful...they'll be gone before they cool down! Thanks so much for posting the recipe. Amita

Would love to make these, they sound perfect for what I'm looking for. Was wondering about substituting truvia for the sugars - does anyone know what the ratio would be? I need a recipe with low to no simple sugars. Thanks!

Hi Blujpster,

Did you happen to find a ratio for subbing with Truvia? I'm curious to know your results. :)

I baked this recipe for the vegetarian festival. The cookies turned out to be very delicious. On the first batch, I didn't have any pecan so I used almond slide instead. My family members couldn't believe these contained no egg and no butter.

I live in Thailand and couldn't find Earth Balance Margarine so I used Meadow Lea (Original).

Hi there! Depending on the size it makes around 48 cookies. The time it takes is probably about 20 minutes to get all of the ingredients together and then baking time. Does this help?

These are AMAZING!!! I've already made them 3 times. I had to adjust the temp b/c the first batch got burned, so I bake them on 360 for about 15 minutes. Thank you so much for sharing!

I just got the last batch out of the oven and everyone who ate some really liked them. Next time I will use less sugar, maybe a 1/2 Cup of each instead of a whole.

Also, once the oats, nuts and cranberries were added I had to moosh together with my hands.

Definitely will make again. I will also freeze the rest of these for Thanksgiving!!

I was looking for a cookie recipe to take to work to share with vegan coworkers. These cookies were very tasty and became a hit of the whole office. Everyone loved them! Very easy to make for someone who hasn't worked with these ingredients or baking method before.
