Vegan Cranberry Orange White Chocolate Almond Flour Cookies
Hello & Happy Friday!!
I was on the move to whip up a Christmas cookie for National Cookie Day and realized I was out of my vegan white chocolate lol. While I love working with dark chocolate, vegan white chocolate is fun to work with and you can easily find it on Amazon. (not sponsored)
With thinking of the perfect holiday cookie, I knew I had to do something cranberry and orange. For various reasons that mixture just resonates with me as holiday flavor combo. What’s funny is that I don’t enjoy cranberries or orange alone, but together it’s pure magic!
I’ve been trying to explore more flourless cookie options as you truly can create some fab treats without comprising flavor and texture. These cookies came out like pure perfection, as they take on the same texture of a traditional white flour cookie, light, fluffy, and have a natural sweetness from the almond flour and dried fruit.
What’s fab about these cookies, is everything! It’s quick, easy, features minimal staple ingredients, can easily be made in bulk, a fluffy soft texture, a hint of orange, rich with cranberries, has aesthetic appeal, perf for Christmas, and my new favorite cookie!
