  2. Combine the oats, almond meal, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside
  3. Combine the mashed avocado, coconut oil, maple syrup and brown sugar in a large bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat for about 2 minutes, until creamy. Add the flax egg and continue beating for another minute
  4. Add the oat mixture and mix until until well incorporated. Fold in the cranberries using a spatula or wooden spoon
  5. Working with a tablespoon and a half of dough at a time (use a small ice cream scoop if you have on in hand), form approximately 15 balls.
