Ingredients

  • 5 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 Tablespoons agave nectar or raw honey
  • 1/4 Cup coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 Cup chestnut flour
  • 1/4 Cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Cup sugar-free dark chocolate chunks
  • 1/4 Cup unsweetened dried cranberries

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small bowl, mix the chestnut and coconut flours, baking soda, and sea salt. Set aside

Using an electric mixer, cream the butter and coconut sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg, vanilla and agave. Add the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Fold in the chocolate and cranberries.

Drop tablespoon-size balls of dough on a baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Using the palm of your hand, flatten the cookies to the thickness you desire.

Bake until the cookies are golden around the edges, but still soft in the center, 8-10 minutes.

*If you are vegan you can use coconut oil. I usually use it for most of my baking, but for these cookies, I found the butter was better.

Cranberry 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.

Cranberry 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.
