Gift in a jar: cranberry & white chocolate oatmeal cookie mix



  • 120g quick oats
  • 130g flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 100g brown sugar
  • 100g sugar
  • 100g dried cranberries
  • 100g white chocolate
  • 1x 1L Mason jar with lid
  • ribbon
  • tag


1. Measure all of the ingredients and layer them inside the jar in order listed in the ingredients section.
2. Tie the ribbon and add a gift tag with the name and the instructions:
“The recipe is for 24 cookies.
Preheat the oven to 175C. Melt 115g of butter and mix it with 1 egg in a large bowl. Add the contents of the jar and mix with a spatula until the cookie dough forms. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Divide the dough into balls (about the size of a walnut), place them on a tray about 5cm apart and bake until slightly golden for 9-10 minutes.

DAY 2.

I wanted to make one of these for a long time now. Recipe in a jar – what a nice idea!

You can make a lot of different things for a recipe in a jar: hot cocoa mix, brownie mix, etc. But I decided to go with a cookie recipe. And I chose a combination of dried cranberries and white chocolate for that. Also, I like to use both white and brown sugar. It not only makes the cookies taste better, it also creates a nice contrast when layered like this in a jar.

So, you have all the dry ingredients you need in a jar. Just add 115g of melted butter and 1 egg, and your cookie dough is ready to be baked! And here’s how the final product looks:

They are a real festive treat! Soft and chewy, thanks to the melted butter, and full of white chocolate and cranberries.

Make a nice gift for your friends and loved ones!
