Low Carb Cranberry Almond Cookies

I decided in 2018 that I wanted to try #GlutenFree recipes and at the time I did not know it would be such a transition from using traditional white or wheat flour, nor did I realize the benefits in going gluten-free on my health or weight. So I jumped in trying a few different recipes along the lines of cookies I like. One of my favorites is a shortbread cookie that is why I chose a recipe which I thought would make my taste buds happy. And it proved to be close.
Cookies With Cranberries
I have tried some recipes using almond flour, coconut flour and some of the others and at the time in 2016, I was not ready to make the change from traditional white flour because I found that the texture is much different than with traditional flour., a bit grainy in texture. It may be because it is does not have the gluten to hold the cookie together, (which is what I found out researching) but recently I have found some great recipes I wanted to try and took a different attitude toward the (texture) of these other alternative flours. I’m still experimenting and I just read on a blog that using 1 Tbsp of gelatin makes a huge difference in texture.

I found this cookie recipe, actually on Instagram and I am liking the ladies’ other recipes and I have tried several. But here is the recipe for her Low Carb Cranberry Almond Cookies and ingredients.

Note:  If you have never baked with the alternative flours and as a nutritional note, Coconut flour: 120 calories, 4 grams fat, 4 grams protein, 16 grams carbs, and 10 grams fiber, it absorbs a lot of liquid and has been suggested to use more eggs.  Almond flour: 160 calories, 14 grams fat, 6 grams protein, 6 grams carbohydrates, and 3 grams of fiber. Source  Both are gluten-free!! The main reason I have decided to make treats with these 2 flours. And because we are enjoying these types of treats we are getting more fiber, lower calories and we still can have sweet treats without feeling guilty.

Another feature is that almost all of the recipes I am finding are small batches, a good thing so I don’t feel guilty if I don’t like them, but I haven’t found that to be the case, theses cookies are not around long enough.[amd-zlrecipe-recipe:12]

Since I first started trying gluten-free recipes, one of the benefits is that I started losing weight and I don’t have that stomach bloat after eating wheat flour recipes. More to come on the weight loss

Another thing I like about theses recipes I am trying it that they are smaller batches, great for testing instead of having a huge batch to deal with. But I can tell you, the recipes I have tired aren’t around long.

  1. Reality of it is, that we could all do with shedding a couple of more pounds in the forthcoming months as the nighttimes get longer and the mornings sun gets prior and more brilliant we need to get out and appreciate it.
