We all love holiday cookies, but often feel guilty about indulging in this high caloric treat. This cranberry-nut chocolate chip cookie is so scrumptious – you won’t even realize they’re made with whole wheat flour, and packed with oats and omega-rich walnuts. Even better – what if I told you they’re only 76 calories per cookie! That’s right this recipe is not only decadent and delicious, but also very healthy compared to their holiday cookie counterparts!

Lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cranberries, walnuts, and chocolate chips in a large bowl.
Combine sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add honey, vanilla, egg, and egg white; beat well. Gradually add flour mixture to sugar mixture; beat at low speed until well blended. Cover and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
