Amandel-cranberrie cookie – almond cranberry cookie (GF-SF-DF-V)


I confess: I don’t do Christmas and I don’t understand all the fuss around it, what to eat, how much presents to buy, what type of tree and what’s the new trend in decorating the house.

I do like the smell of a beautiful tree, but I prefer it in the forest, and I do like making things with my hands, to give away as presents or just for fun and I really do like cooking and thinking about food and what to eat today and tomorrow, for myself and son or for my beloved or friends and family.
I am just not in the mood, to do what everybody is going to do on the same day this year.

This gluten free cookie with dried cranberries I created in september, no sign of Christmas then, with the contents of what was in my pantry. They are quick to make, delicious to taste and sugar free and vegan (I really must not think about all the poor turkeys now).
Enjoy your Christmas time!


Almond-cranberry cookie (makes 10)

100 g almond meal
25 g coconut flour (Aman Prana)
¼ tsp sea salt
¼ tsp vanilla powder
1 tsp tartaric acid baking powder
60 ml sunflower oil or coconut oil
60 ml brown rice syrup
35 g dried cranberries, coarsely chopped
35 g almonds, slivered lengthwise

Pre heat the oven on 175 ˚C.

Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl.
Whisk together the oil and rice syrup and stir into the dry ingredients until combined well.
Then fold in cranberries and almond slivers.
Prepare a baking tray with baking paper and scoop 10 heaps of the dough on the baking tray.
Bake the cookies for 12-15 minutes in the middle of the pre heated oven, till they are golden brown. Let them cool 20 minutes before serving, still a bit warm.
