Ingredients

  • cups  almond flour
  • cup Lakanto or alternative low carb granular sweetener
  • ½ tsp  baking powder
  • ¼ tsp  salt
  • ¼ cup butter melted
  • egg beaten
  • 1 tbsp  orange zest
  • ½ tsp  vanilla extract
  • 2 oz fresh cranberries

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients - almond flour, low carb sweetener, baking powder and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the melted butter (or coconut oil for dairy free), orange zest, vanilla and egg.
  • Stir the egg mixture into the dry ingredients until a dough forms. It should be dense and pliable, but not crumbly. If it's too dry, add more melted butter or coconut oil.
  • Finally, press the cranberries into the dough. Place it onto a baking pan lined with a silicone mat. Flatten into a disc shape - about 1" thick and 6" in diameter. Cut into 8 wedges and move the pieces about 1" apart.
  • Bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes until golden brown.
  • Let them cool completely on the pan - they will firm up as they cool down.
