Pecan-Cran Oatmeal Bites

Pecan-Cran Oatmeal Bites are similar to a hearty, chewy oatmeal cookie but are a little more healthy (this is a no butter recipe)! A great on the go, quick and easy, healthy breakfast or snack. These bites can be customized with any nut, dried fruit and more!

  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 40


  • ½ c brown sugar
  • ¼ c granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 4 oz yogurt ((plain or flavored, Greek style or regular))
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¾ c all purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp cinnamon ((I prefer Ceylon cinnamon))
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ c oats ((quick cooking or old fashioned can be used))
  • ½ c pecans ((chopped roughly))
  • ½ c dried cranberries


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Line a mini muffin pan with mini muffin cups.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the sugars and egg until light and creamy. Then, add the yogurt and vanilla. Mix well.
  3. In a medium bowl separately, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just moistened and combined.
  5. Stir in the oats using a spatula or wooden spoon. Lastly, fold in the chopped pecans and dried cranberries. The batter will be thick and very sticky.
  6. Using a 2 teaspoon sized cookie scoop, add one scoop to each muffin cavity.
  7. Bake for about 15 minutes or until lightly browned and firm.
  8. Cool fully before storing. These can be left in an airtight container for 4-5 days. They can also be frozen for 3-4 months.
