12 portions
Metric Imperial


  • 1/4 cup non-hydrogenated margarine
  • 1/4 cup fat-free Greek yogurt
  • 3/4 cup maple sugar
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup (preferably dark syrup for its robust flavour)

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose unbleached flour

  • 1 1/2 cup dried cranberries


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F).
  2. Using a mixer, beat the margarine and Greek yogurt together in a bowl with the maple sugar and maple syrup until the mixture turns pale and slightly frothy.
  3. Add the eggs one by one, then the vanilla and continue mixing until smooth. In another bowl, combine the flour, powdered milk, oats and bicarbonate of soda.
  4. Add the dry ingredients into the sugar mixture and mix until a smooth paste forms.
  5. Add the cranberries and mix in using a wooden spoon.
  6. Shape into balls of about 60 ml (1/4 cup) and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. You may need to bake in two batches depending on quantity. Flatten the balls with your fingers.
  7. Bake in the oven for 10 to 12 or until the cookies turn a light golden colour. The cookies will finish cooking out of the oven.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
