Cranberry Almond Granola Cookies

Welcome Virtual Vegan Potluckers!

I am so excited to be participating in the virtual vegan potluck again. This time there are over 100 bloggers from all over the world sharing everything from appetizers to main courses to desserts.



If you've visited my blog before, you know that I'm no stranger to dessert, and so that is what I'm bringing to the pot luck today! Last time I brought a salad, and even though I do love a good salad, in my kitchen cookies totally win every time. Sorry brussels sprouts, I still love you.


Cranberry Almond Granola Cookies

6 Tbsp vegan butter
3/4 C sugar
1/4 C applesauce
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 C flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 C natural granola
1/4 C almonds, chopped
1/4 C dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 300 F.

Combine butter, sugar, applesauce and vanilla with an electric mixer. Add in the flour and baking soda and mix again. Gently stir in the granola, chopped almonds, and cranberries.
Drop rounded spoonfuls onto a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Let cool and enjoy!


These cookies were delicious! I was almost out of ideas after all those vegan mofo posts, but I had some granola to use from the last food swap, and these were the perfect thing. I hope you enjoy them!
