I queried the Food Network website for kid-friendly recipes and this was one of the tasty looking examples. I doubled it and it worked out great.

Cranberry Chocolate Chunk Cookies

3/4 c. EACH packed dark brown sugar AND sugar

2 eggs AND 1/2 c. canola oil AND 1 t. vanilla

1 1/4 c. flour

1 c. whole wheat flour

3/4 t. baking soda AND 1/2 t. salt

6-8 oz. chocolate chunks (about 200 g.)

3/4 c. dried cranberries

Preheat the oven to 375 and line the cookie sheets that you’ll be using with parchment.

In a large bowl, whisk together the sugars, eggs, oil and vanilla until smooth, and then in a smaller bowl combine the flours, baking soda and salt – these cookies work the best if you do all of the mixing by hand.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet and stir with a wooden spoon until just combined, then stir in the chocolate and cranberries.

Roll dough into (smaller than golf balls) balls, and place a couple of inches apart on the cookie sheets and bake for 10 to 12 minutes.  They should be just barely golden brown if you want chewy cookies and obviously you can cook them longer if you prefer a bit of crunch.

Transfer the cookies to a rack to cool and then dive in.
