I couldn’t be happier with how these amazing Paleo Cranberry Ginger Cookies turned out. It is taking all of my power not to eat the whole batch so I have plenty to share with friends. I hope you all enjoy these delicious cookies and make, and remake, and share and then make again and keep the Paleo love spreading :) Enjoy
Cranberry Ginger Cookies
- 2 1/2 cups almond flour
- 1/2 cup almond butter
- 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/4 cup coconut oil melted
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit
- Combine all the ingredients above except for cranberries in a mixing bowl and mix well with your hand mixer
- Fold in your dried cranberries and ensure an even distribution by hand
- Using your cookie scoop, place scoops of cookies on a parchment lined baking sheet leaving room between the cookies because they will slightly expand
- Using the back of a spoon or your hand, slightly flatten the cookies
- Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes or until done but ensure you continually check it so you don't burn them, some peoples ovens will be hotter than others
- Remove from the oven, place on a cooling rack or plate

George, I’ve read multiple studies on how high quantities of almond flour are not healthy to ingest. Any thoughts on that? Have you read any similar studies that share that same concern?
Oh, these were great! I didn’t have any ginger on hand so I used a table spoon of lemon extract- it’s now a light, “breakfast” cookie. Thanks for sharing : D
PS- not sure why I can’t click onto the fifth star…what’s up with that? : /
Do you have any good recommendations to substitute the Almond flour. We are just starting out our Paleo eating, but have a daughter who is allergic to all nuts :( which is making some recipes hard.
Sorry I don’t make any substitutions for my recipes unless there is an obvious substitution that can be made.
Just made large versions of these today, minus the ginger and plus some dark chocolate chips. Delish! :o)
Sounds awesome. Love the idea of adding dark chocolate chips!
Another incredible recipe!! That’s why I love your page :) Made a batch today and they were a hit at our house. Soooo good!! Looks like I’ll be making another batch soon, they are disappearing quickly
I’m happy you enjoyed the cookies!
I made a variation of these this afternoon…Made for friends who don’t like coconut. I eliminated the shredded coconut and added mini-chocolate chips. I left the oil in…it’s not noticeable. Also, substituted dried orange peel for ginger. The orange peel was too subtle with the almond flour/butter. But they still taste AMAZING! I think my max time should be 10-11 minutes. Any more than that and they are going to burn.
Yeah, it’s funny how all ovens are so different. I love ginger, good call!
My 16year old son said “these are some seriously good cookies”
It has been difficult finding gluten free treats that he likes. These
are awesome. Thankyou
You are very welcome! Glad he liked them.
Simply the best gluten free cookies I’ve tried so far. Mine were just a little thicker so I let them a little longer on the oven and like you said, I kept watching them so they didn’t burn… they were sooooo good! I had to make another batch as we were basically fighting over them :)
Love the taste but why are mine fat not thin?!?
So I just made these cookies. I didn’t have any ginger, so I used nutmeg instead…holy cow…AMAZING! Thank you so much for this recipe!
I love nutmeg too :)
I found these while looking for a low sugar/ sugar free cookie for my in-laws who have diabetes. Didn’t want to use artificial sweeteners so I searched “paleo cookies” and this was one of the top hits. Sounded too good to be true, but I tried them…. Seriously, amazing. Thank you so much for this fantastic, easy, healthy recipe! I couldn’t find unsweetened cranberries unfortunately– are they hard to find?
Sometimes they can be hard to find Kristin, sorry about that but they are so minimal you will be fine
Hello, could I sub coconut flour for in the almond flour?
Ben it will not work in this recipe, the almond flour is used for consistency and shape
I web surfed into your site this evening after typing in “Paleo dessert.” Boy, am I glad I did. These are fantastic. Usually, when I try a new recipe for the first time, I’m already contemplating how I will change it up for next time. Not these! Perfect, as is. Thanks!
Awesome. Welcome to my site I am so glad you found it
Omigosh . . . . making these for a cookie swap tomorrow. I don’t know if 2 dozen will make it to the party. I LOVE these! I’m a big fan of ginger though, so I’m gonna increase the ginger in the next batch.
Woohoo thank you Juri
Obviously catching up on all of my reviews tonight (while the banana bread is in the oven!)… Made these for a holiday party and they were good!! Unfortunately I burned the bottoms a bit so i only was able to bring a handful or so to the party. But i will be making these again and I’ll keep a careful eye on them next time!
My hubby is deathly allergic to coconut. Any sub ideas?
Take the coconut out and then replace the coconut oil with butter
What almond butter do you use?
I make my own or I will use trader joes sometimes or go to the local health store and grind my own fresh
Made these last night for some friends…. they could not believe they didnt have any flour in them! They (the cookies) disappeared quickly. Thanks for an amazing recipe.
You are most welcome, so glad you enjoyed them
A Fine Balance
Holy heaven. I am looking forward to making these in 33 days! Post competition treat? I think yes!
Holy Moly Chrissy have you tried putting a thermometer in your oven to see if the temperature is what it says? Your cookies also could have been thinner than mine so no worries, glad your second batch came out better

I put them in for 14 mins and burned the crap out of them, LOL This is my first time following a Paleo baking recipe…I'm trying to learn, haha :) About to try another batch!
I am sorry you don't like ginger, I had some people asking me for them so I made them and they loved them, just want to make sure they weren't a culinary failure :(
Hey, made them!! Gotta say I'm not a fan of the ginger…I'm going to make them again and use cinnamon or nutmeg. or a combo of both. My man and my son loved them, however :) I also used less salt than the recipe called for.
Go for it and let me know how you like them :) you can also do it without any fruit
I don't have the cranberries on hand, but I have raisins!! I think I'll try this out tonight! :D
