Mmmm, cookies

Since trying my first paleo pizza crust, I figured almond meal/flour would make for a great cookie. I first tried a recipe from Elana's Pantry, but have adapted it to a more paleo friendly version. The cool thing about this recipe is that you can stick just about anything in it - nuts, dried fruit, chocolate chips, etc. Below I go with dried cranberries and crushed walnuts...

Almond Cranberry Cookies
  • 2 ½ C blanched almond flour
  • ½ t celtic sea salt
  • ½ t baking soda
  • ½ C grapeseed oil
  • 1 T vanilla extract
  • Up to ½ C applesauce or honey (I recently made this with only about 2 T applesauce and they were sweet enough to pass as cookies)
  • ½ C crushed walnuts
  • ½ C dried cranberries
  1. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl
  2. Stir together wet ingredients in a smaller bowl
  3. Mix wet ingredients into dry
  4. Form ½ inch balls and press onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet
  5. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes
  6. Cool and serve

Makes 24 cookies
