A nice Christmas cookie, with flavors of vanilla and cranberries, I'm happy with how these turned out.  They have a nice texture - just the right chewiness for my liking.  Make sure not to overbake.  I actually started from my Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe and adjusted it here and there to make cranberry cookies.  I hope you will enjoy them and maybe add them to your holiday celebrations.  They are going with me to a Christmas party.


Cranberry Cookies

Recipe By     :Ginny 
Serving Size  : 18 cookies   

1 1/4  cups  almond flour - Honeyville
1/2  cup  whey protein isolate, Isopure
1/2  cup  Pyure sweetener (or granulated sweetener to equal 1 cup sugar)
1/4  cup  oat fiber
1/2  tsp. baking soda
1/8  teaspoon  salt
1/4  cup  butter -- softened
1  large  egg
1  teaspoon  vanilla extract
1/2  teaspoon  stevia extract, GV brand
1/4  cup  HOT water
1/2  cup  fresh cranberries -- each cut in half
Pyure sweetener -- to sprinkle on top

Preheat oven to 350F. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat.

In mixing bowl, add almond flour, whey protein isolate, Pyure sweetener, oat fiber, and salt.  Sift together.

In small bowl, add butter, egg, vanilla extract and stevia extract.  Mix with electric mixer until smooth. 

Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until well combined.  Pour the hot water over all and mix in until it makes a stiff dough. Stir in cranberries. 

Use cookie scoop (2 tbsp) to scoop dough onto cookie sheet.  (It helps to dip the scoop into hot water between each scoop).  Flatten with the back of a spoon.  Lightly sprinkle more sweetener on top of each cookie if desired. 

Bake 12  to 14 minutes. They won't brown on top but will begin to brown around the bottom and edges. Cool completely.

  1. Thanks for a great recipe! Have done my Christmas (hi carb) baking for others, now I will make something I can have. These look good and you can't beat 1 g carb! What is oat fiber?

    1. Oat fiber is a very fine powder and is pure fiber. It is not oat bran. It gives low carb baked goods a nice texture more of a "flour" mouth feel. I think I would add a bit more fat to these than I used next time. They were just a tad bit dry the next day. Here is a link to a search on oat fiber you can check out for more info. https://www.google.com/search?q=oat+fiber&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en-us&client=safari
