Cherry Almond Flour Cookies SCD Gluten Free Dairy Free

More cookies! Just in time for my holiday baking, I whipped up a new recipe for my mom.  While I have cooked up loads of chocolate goodies, already, my mom is not eating any chocolate due to the caffeine. These are a sure hit for the chocolate free cookie during the holidays, or any time of year.

3 cups almond flour
1/2 cup dried cherries (or fruit of choice)
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut flakes
1/4 cup melted Earth Balance Butter Sticks (use coconut oil for SCD compliance)
1/2 cup honey
1 egg
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Mix all ingredients together and bake, on stoneware pans, at 325 degrees F for 20 minutes, or until cookies begin to golden.

These have a wonderful soft chewy center with a crisp outer.  The flavors of almond and cherry mix so nicely with the coconut and earth balance.  It's a hit! Of course you could sub out the fruit for chocolate pieces, if you are not following a specific carbohydrate plan, but trust me when I say that you won't miss the chocolate.   Enjoy!
