Cranberry Chocolate Chip Cookies (Paleo, Egg-free)


Cranberry Chocolate Chip Cookies (Paleo, Egg-free)Oh hi! Merry Christmas Eve!! I haven’t posted in almost 2 weeks. It’s been sorta hectic around here. My parents got here a few days ago from South Korea for the holidays (yay!!), so I’ve been busy with life stuff like cleaning the apartment, cooking up a storm, and taking them around the bay area for all the touristy activities. But I’m back now just in time with a seriously delicious cookie recipe that is grain-free, egg-free, and gluten-free.

I have so. much. cranberries in the freezer. I bought way more than I should since they are so bright and festive this time of year, and I’ve been using them for decorations like cranberry and popcorn garlands for the tree and cranberry candle centerpieces (Pinterest runs my life, clearly). Since my dad loves sweets, I thought this was the perfect opportunity to make a healthy treat out of some of the leftover cranberries.

And cranberries and chocolate make such a great combo.

As with any baking recipe, remember to follow the directions carefully. Make sure to combine the dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately before combining them.

I like the crunchiness of the walnuts in these cookies, but you can leave them out and they’ll still be delicious. They are perfect for the holidays and the cranberries give them a beautiful color!
