Prep time: 30 minutes Serves: 2 dozen (24 servings)

Ingredients

Flour mixture

  • 1 1/2 cups / 375 ml all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp / 5 ml baking soda
  • 1 tsp / 5 ml baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp / 7 ml kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp / 25 ml yellow mustard seed

Creamed mixture

  • 1 cup / 250 ml unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup / 250 ml granulated sugar
  • 1 cup / 250 ml packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp / 10 ml vanilla
  • 3 tbsp / 45 ml honey mustard

Fruit mixture

  • 2 1/2 cups / 625 ml rolled oats (not instant)
  • 1 1/2 cups / 375 ml dried, unsweetened cranberries
  • 1/2 cup / 125 ml unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup / 250 ml salty chopped nuts (salty peanuts, pecans, cashews work well)
  • 1 cup / 250 ml semi-sweet chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  2. Whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and mustard seed. Set aside.
  3. Combine butter, sugars, eggs, vanilla and honey mustard with a hand-mixer, on low, increasing speed to high and beat until fluffy and colour lightens.
  4. Stir flour mixture into creamed mixture, until no flour is visible. (Over-mixing results in a tough cookie.)
  5. In separate bowl, mix together oats, cranberries, coconut, nuts and chocolate chips.
  6. Add fruit mixture to batter and stir.
  7. Onto a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, drop tablespoons (15 ml) of batter 2 inches (5 cm) apart.
  8. Bake 11-13 minutes (on centre rack) until golden and cookie is still moist beneath cracks on top.
  9. Remove from oven. Let cookies sit on baking sheet for 2 minutes, before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
  10. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days or freeze up to 3 months.
