This chewy oatmeal cookie, filled with sweet dried cranberries, coconut, and toasted pecans is 'berry nutty' indeed! I love a warm, chewy oatmeal cookie and spent many years trying to find just the right recipe. One day while gathering ingredients from my pantry for a batch of oatmeal cookies, I spied dried cranberries, coconut, and pecans left over from other baking projects and decided to use them up. My daughter named the cookie "Berry Nutty Oatmeal."

How to Make Berry Nutty Oatmeal Cookies

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • 2Cream together sugars, butter, and eggs.
  • 3Add vanilla and mix.
  • 4In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, soda, baking powder, cinnamon and oats.
  • 5Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
  • 6Stir in coconut, cranberries and pecans.
  • 7Drop by teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes or until edges are slightly browned. (Do not overbake!)
