Primal CocoNutty Cranberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients (makes 24):
1/2 cup macadamia nuts, chopped
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
1/2 cup almonds, chopped
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup dried cranberries, chopped
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
2 1/2 cups almond flour
2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350°.
2. Beat butter for 30 seconds in a bowl. Add in chopped cranberries and baking soda. Beat in eggs, vanilla, and almond flour. Stir in coconut, chocolate chips, and nuts. Mix until smooth.
3. Place parchment paper on a baking sheet. Place spoonfuls of cookie mixture on tray.
4. Bake for 15 minutes, flipping halfway through. Let cool (because they're pretty crumbly when still hot) and enjoy!

  1. These are the ultimate gourmet cookies crisp on the outside, chewy and soft on the inside, and really simple to make. These can be made surprisingly wonderful alternative to more traditional party treats. Thanks a lot.

  4. My husband is salivating over those pictures! His favorite childhood treat was "it's it" from San Francisco. These look like they could be up to par with the best!
