  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup unsalted sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup mini M&M's


  1. Instructions:

    Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Adjust your oven rack to the middle of your oven.

  2. Cover your baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper and set aside.

  3. In a bowl, whisk together the oats, whole wheat and all-purpose flours, salt, cinnamon and baking soda. Set aside.

  4. In a large bowl, whisk the melted butter, egg, vanilla and sugar until combined. Add in the sugar and stir until mixture is smooth. Scrape the sides of the bowl to make sure you have all the sugar mixed in.

  5. Stir in the oat mixture until just combined.

  6. Add in the cranberries, sunflower seeds, pecans, chocolate chips and M&M’s and stir just until they are all mixed in well.

  7. Make your cookie dough balls a heaping tablespoon in size. Roll them into balls and place them on the covered baking sheet two inches apart.

  8. Bake one sheet at a time, rotating it half way through, for 12-14 minutes. Cookies are done when the edges are slightly brown.

  9. Remove from oven and let them cool on the cookie sheet for ten minutes.

  10. Store the cookies in an airtight container.
