Ingredients

  • 2 cups blanched almond flour (NOTE: Not almond meal)
  • ¼ cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour (TRY: Carrington Farms Organic Coconut Flour)
  • 2 tbsp hemp hearts
  • ½ tsp each sea salt, baking soda and ground cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • ⅓ cup coconut oil or organic unsalted butter, softened
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup or raw honey
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • ½ cup naturally sweetened or unsweetened dried cranberries or cherries
  • ½ cup raw unsalted pecans, chopped

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together almond flour, shredded coconut, coconut flour, hemp hearts, salt, baking soda and cinnamon. Add eggs, oil, maple syrup, orange zest and vanilla; with a handheld electric mixer on medium, mix until well combined. Reduce to low speed, add cranberries and pecans and mix until combined.
  3. Drop by ¼ cup, 1 inch apart, onto prepared baking sheet. Bake until golden and centers are no longer doughy, about 25 minutes. Let cool on sheet for 5 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool completely.
