Big Chocolate Chip Cranberry Cookies (made with real cranberries)

There’s something about using real cranberries in recipes that just screams fall and winter baking! These big chocolate chip cranberry cookies are made with real cranberries and are my new favorite cookie for the holidays.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 24 -30 big cookies


  • 1/3 cup coconut flakes toasted
  • 1/2 cup 1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature or slightly melted
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 4 ounces 1 cup fresh cranberries


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet(s) with silicone baking mat(s) or parchment paper and set aside.
  • Toast coconut by placing coconut flakes on a lined baking sheet and baking for 5 minutes, until slightly browned and fragrant. Remove from oven and set aside.
  • Warm the butter (I always keep mine in the fridge, so I simply microwave it for 30 seconds -1 minute).
  • In a large bowl combine the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Beat with a hand or stand mixer until well combined (about 1 minute). Add in vanilla extract and egg and egg white and beat again until well combined (about 30 seconds.)
  • Add flour and baking soda to the bowl, then stir it with a wooden spoon. Add in coconut flakes, semi sweet chocolate chips and fresh cranberries. Stir to combine.
  • With a large cookie scoop (or forming large 3 tablespoon each dough balls with your hand), scoop cookie dough and place on prepared baking sheet about 3 inches between cookies (I get 6 cookies per tray). Slightly press dough down and bake for 13-17 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies start to brown.
  • Remove from oven, and allow to cool for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
