These Cranberry Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies are the perfect low-carb and gluten-free holidays season treat. They are filled with sugar-free dried cranberries and dark chocolate chips.
As you probably have noticed by the last few holiday treats I’ve been posting recently (Chocolate Almond Biscotti Cookies, Almond Flour Shortbread Cookies and Almond Flour Cranberry Muffins) that I love baking with almond flour.
It’s not simply because almond flour is packed with good fats, protein and it’s low-carb and gluten-free. I think what I like the most about baking with it, is because of the delicious nutty flavour and the great texture.
Anyways, if you’re in the holiday baking mood like I am, you’ll also have to check out my Chocolate Almond Butter Cookies, Coconut Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Cranberry Chocolate Chip Cookies! And if you’re gluten-free, you should check out my 12 Healthy Gluten-free Cookies Recipes (Web Story)!
How These Cranberry Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies Taste:
The almond flour gives these Cranberry Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies a very rich and nutty flavor throughout the cookie. They are also soft inside and outside they are crispy.
These cookies also bake up thick and they are balanced, sweetened naturally and have this tangy bits of cranberry! On top of that, the chocolate chips inside of the cookies bring more indulgence to these holiday treat. These cranberry almond chocolate chip cookies are some of the best cookies I’ve made in a while and they check off everything on our favourite Christmas cookies:
- Extreme softness.
- Crisp edges.
- Darn thick.
They are basically everything we all love about a chocolate chip cookie. The best part is that these cookies are a pretty healthy option when it comes to holiday cookies because they’re sugar-free, low-carb and gluten-free too! Plus, they only require one bowl, few ingredients and about 30 minutes to whip up! I really hope you enjoy this recipe and give it a try.
