Cranberry chocolate cookies – paleo & vegan

cranberry cookies

Welcome back to cookie season! Christmas isn’t that far away anymore and with that it is time to start baking cookies again. I decided to not start with a traditional cookie recipe but with cookies that are using seasonal products aka cranberries.

This is the first time in my life, I have ever had cranberries and I am addicted now. Stay tuned for two more amazing recipe using cranberries coming your way!

But let’s talk cookies now. This recipe can be adjusted according to your diet. For paleo folks: use a whole egg or almond butter* for a fattier version and use egg whites for a lower calorie and high protein version.

For the vegan folks out there, almond butter or any other nut butter is a great option.

Also, if you are allergic to nuts, you can use ground chufa (tigernut) instead of almond flour.

As a sweetener I either use 100% pure raw stevia powder or yacon syrup*.
