Chocolate Cranberry Cookies

These chocolate cranberry cookies are filled with rich chocolate chips and sweet dried fruit– great for dessert, but healthy enough for breakfast!

This is one of my favorite flavor combinations– chocolate is so good at complementing the light tartness of dried cranberries. The super soft texture of these cookies make them especially appealing to me in the morning, and though I’m never one to have a problem with eating cookies for breakfast, these are particularly guilt-free!

    These look delicious! At first I thought they were chocolate cherry cookies, I just must have cherries on my mind. I bet these would be delicious with dried cherries as well but my family and I love cranberries too!

      Thank you! 🙂
      I haven’t tried these with honey or maple syrup– I should! I always use one of the two in my peanut butter cookies, but I should branch out. I don’t know what your thoughts on stevia are, but I’ve made these with a baking blend.

      Haha, I mostly don’t even notice when others use them– it’s usually that *I* can’t stand to use them. Weird language quirks! 😉 Thank you!
