(healthier than most!)

Cookies from a goddess, this is another amazing recipe from Tranquility Carol, the wispy siren who sings the songs of the deep woods. She captivates us with tastes that liberate our souls with subtle touches and scintillations.


One cup whole wheat flour
One-quarter cup all-purpose flour
Three-quarter cup regular oats
One teaspoon baking soda
One-half teaspoon salt
One and one-half cups packed brown sugar
One-quarter cup butter, softened
One-quarter cup reduced-fat sour cream
One teaspoon vanilla extract
One large egg white
Three-quarter cup sweetened dried cranberries, coarsely chopped
One-half cup pecans, coarsely chopped
One-half cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours, oats, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Place sugar, butter, and sour cream in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until smooth. Add vanilla and egg whites; beat well. Gradually add flour mixture, stirring until blended. Fold in cranberries, pecans, and chocolate chips. Drop dough by rounded spoonfuls 2 inches apart onto 2 baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until edges of cookies are browned. Cool on pan 5 minutes. Remove cookies from pan; cool on wire racks.
