Paleo Cranberry Pistachio Chocolate Cookies

These yummy and crunchy Paleo Cranberry Pistachio Chocolate Cookies are a delicious addition to your holiday dessert table!

Paleo Cranberry Pistachio Chocolate Cookies

I made these Paleo Cranberry Pistachio Chocolate Cookies on a whim to send out as holiday gifts to my friends and family, and thank goodness I did. I took one bite of these cookies and they are so delicious and amazing, and has the perfect amount of crunch from the pistachios. I probably would’ve have finished the whole thing in one sitting if I didn’t have to pack them up and ship them out.

I honestly didn’t give these cookies much thought when I first started making them and wasn’t even planning to share them with you. I just saw that I had pistachios and dried cranberries in my pantry and decided that they would go great together in cookie form. So I tested out a batch and I couldn’t believe how yummy they turned out, so I made 2 more batches to share them for the holidays (and the recipe with you!).

I love adding flaky sea salt to dessert recipes. The flavor and the texture they give are just the best, and I highly recommend you sprinkle some on these cookies to really let the tastes of cranberries and pistachios shine. It also gives such a festive, holiday look, and they remind me of light snowfall.

If you looking for gluten and grain free cookies that are a bit more special and fun than your regular old sugar cookies or chocolate chip cookies, you’ll love these Paleo Cranberry Pistachio Chocolate Cookies. Hope you enjoy!
