Ingredients

  • 2 1/4  Cups  packed almond flour
  • 1/4  Cup  tapioca flour
  • 1/4  Teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  Teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/4  Teaspoon  baking powder
  • 10  Tablespoons  melted butter
  • 1/2  Cup  honey
  • 1  Tablespoon  vanilla extract
  • 1/2  Cup  sugar-free mini chocolate chips
  • 1/2  Cup  chopped dried cherries
  • 1/2  Cup  chopped walnuts

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, mix almond flour, tapioca flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder.

In a separate bowl mix melted butter, vanilla, and honey.

Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips, cherries, and walnuts. Refridgerate 30 minutes. Once the mixture is chilled, measure out 1 tablespoon of dough at a time and roll into a ball. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Continue until your pan is full as these cookies do not spread much. Press gently on each ball of dough with 2 fingers to flatten them slightly.

Bake the cookies for 11-13 minutes depending on your oven. Mine were perfect at 12 minutes. Let cool slightly on the baking sheet and then remove them to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes approximately 50 cookies, depending on how big or small you make them.

Cherry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
