RECIPE: Paleo Almond Cranberry Cookies

Since Christmas is right around the corner I thought it would be a good time to post a new recipe I found online. I love almonds. I love walnuts. I love cranberries. And, I love honey, so this recipe seemed to be right up my alley. I made them the other day and I was correct ... I LOVE them! They are little energy bombs and are great for any time of the day. Try them out and see for yourself!
2 cups almond flour
¼ cup ghee or butter (melted)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup honey
2 eggs
1/4 cup cranberries (whole or chopped)
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon almond butter (optional)
1/2 cup walnuts (chopped)
1. Mix all ingredients together in a medium sized bowl.
2. Roll dough in plastic wrap.
3. Refrigerate 1 hour.
4. Slice.
5. Cook on parchment covered cookie sheet about 10 - 12 minutes until light brown.

Makes 36 cookies


  1. Wow, that sounds really scrumptious... I may hafta give that recipe a try... as soon as cranberries go down in price 'round here... lol. Thanks, Carol!

  2. I was also shocked at the price of cranberries last week, so I found them B1G1 the other day and bought so many I need to use some up! These will be perfect, if I can find almond flour. I'm also going to make a cranberry-lime vodka. Any more cranberry gems in your arsenal Carol?

  3. Thanks, ladies! Yeah, cranberries are a bit pricy, but be glad the recipe doesn't call for dried blueberries! ($10.00 per pound here ... OUCH!) I will look and see what other cranberry recipes I have, Nancy. I LOVE them!
