  • 1 3/4 cup oats
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour or arrowroot starch
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil liquified
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup walnuts chopped finely
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries


  1. Preheat oven to 350F/175C degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together oats, almond meal, tapioca or arrowroot starch, coconut sugar, baking soda and sea salt. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together coconut oil, egg, and vanilla. Mix in wet ingredients into the dry until well combined, then fold in walnuts and dried cranberries. Mix with your hands until the mixture resembles oatmeal cookie dough.
  3. Chill dough for 30 minutes, then roll into balls (I used a standard ice cream scoop for even sized balls) and flatten with the palms of your hands (they will spread just a little bit). Repeat until you have about 17 cookies. Add to a cookie sheet and bake for 12-14 minutes or until browned around the edges and bottom. Cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes before serving.
