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 Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

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.
