COCONUT CRANBERRY ALMOND COOKIES

I hope your Thanksgiving was filled with delicious food and time spent with those you love. We were in Tennessee visiting my parents for the week and had a wonderful time. It was the first time traveling as a family of five with a 2 month old so that was an adjustment, but we survived. These Coconut Cranberry Almond Cookies actually came in handy on our 7 hour drive. My kids love them!

We enjoyed a delicious, traditional meal on Thanksgiving including turkey, cranberries, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, rolls, a chickpea salad and of course lots of desserts.  These Coconut Cranberry Almond Cookies were the perfect road snack but also made a nice treat after the big meal.

These cookies are just the right amount of sweet.  Sometimes after a heavy meal the last thing I want is a rich, overly sweet dessert.  These are also gluten and dairy free which makes them a perfect holiday cookie for those in your life that might have an allergic to wheat or dairy. Instead of using traditional flour these Coconut Cranberry Almond Cookies use Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour along with Bob’s Red Mill dried cranberries, silvered almonds and hemp seeds.

Julia, these look great! I'd make them for myself as well, but especially for my friends who are both dairy- and gluten-free. What a lovely combination of flavors and textures.
