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

  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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 :)

  4. Hi,
    Love the taste but why are mine fat not thin?!?

  5. 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 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?

  7. Hello, could I sub coconut flour for in the almond flour?



  8. 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!

  9. 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.

  10. 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!

  11. My hubby is deathly allergic to coconut. Any sub ideas?

  12. What almond butter do you use?

  13. Jeff Laliberty says:

    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.

  14. A Fine Balance says:

    Holy heaven. I am looking forward to making these in 33 days! Post competition treat? I think yes!

  15. 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

  16. Chrissy Brown Photography says:

    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!

  17. 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 :(

  18. 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.

  19. Go for it and let me know how you like them :) you can also do it without any fruit

  20. I don't have the cranberries on hand, but I have raisins!! I think I'll try this out tonight! :D
