We tend to think of ourselves as a healthy family, but somehow this winter has been one mild case of the sniffles after another. At least it was never more serious than that, but we’re happy warm weather is on the horizon. And we’re fighting off any lingering germs with this recipe. Okay, these cookies won’t really cure the flu, but they do contain good-for-you foods like ginger, cinnamon, walnuts, and more.


  • 2 and 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 and 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup Earth Balance butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Ener-G eggs
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1/4 cup vanilla non-dairy yogurt
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 and 1/4 cups dried cranberries
  • 1 and 1/4 cups chopped walnuts
  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and salt. Set aside.
  2. Cream together the butter and brown sugar in a stand mixer. Add the Ener-G eggs, molasses, and yogurt; beat until combined.
  3. Fold in the oats, cranberries, and walnuts.
  4. Drop the dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Bake at 375 degrees F for 12 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
