Ingredients
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup ground flax or wheat germ
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup turbinado sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup oats quick-cooking or old-fashioned (not instant)
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chopped or white chocolate chips
  • 1/3 dried cranberries no sugar added
  • 2 TBS chopped macadamia nuts *optional
Instructions
  1. Position racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 375°F.
  2. Whisk flour, flax or wheat germ, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, cardamom and ground ginger in a small bowl. Whisk egg, sugar, oil, applesauce and vanilla in a large bowl.
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients; stir to combine. Add oats and stir again. Add chocolate, cranberries and macadamia nuts if using them; stir just to combine. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto 2 ungreased baking sheets, 1 1/2 inches apart. (FYI- dough will be thick).
  4. Bake the cookies until puffed and barely golden around the edges, switching the pans back to front and top to bottom halfway through, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on the pans for 2 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
