Chewy on the outside with a soft brownie-like interior. These Paleo Double Chocolate Cranberry Cookies are perfect for the holiday season or anytime you get that chocolate cookie craving!
My way of coping with cold, snowy weather is to turn on the fireplace, crank up the heat and bake something in the oven. I made a batch of these Paleo Double Chocolate Cranberry Cookies last week and I think I’ll be making them again today!
Sometimes I think that the term “holiday season” should be replaced with “cookie season”. Everywhere you look there are cookies! Pinterest, magazines, TV, the office and even your front doorstep. It’s the only month where making 5 or more different kinds of cookies is normal.
A couple of my favorite Christmas cookies to make and share with family and neighbors are Vanilla and Chocolate Pizzelles and Danish Vanilla Rings. Both are variations of family recipes that I grew up eating way too many of every December…and still do.
This year I wanted to go a totally different direction with my cookie baking. I’ll still be making the classic family recipes, but I’m also adding some of my own recipes, like these Paleo Double Chocolate Cranberry Cookies.
The texture of these cookies is soft and chewy, almost brownie like in texture. You won’t find any flour or dairy in them, instead almond butter and cocoa powder and dairy-free chocolate chips. They may sound like health cookies, but they absolutely don’t taste like them.
Another sneaky ingredient added to these protein filled chocolatey bites is Vital Proteins’ Cocoa & Coconut Water Collagen Whey. I figured that if I was going to be baking cookies I might as well give them a little extra protein plus all the benefits of collagen.
It’s an easy supplement to add to anything from hot or cold drinks, your morning oatmeal, a favorite dinner or desserts like Paleo Pumpkin Pie Bites or these awesome Paleo Double Chocolate Cranberry Cookies! Go ahead and embrace the “cookie season” and give your baking a healthy kick by adding in some collagen!
