Cranberry Chocolate Pecan Cookies

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Low-Sugar, Low-Carb
These cookies are seriously sooo good and contain minimal amounts of sugar. Your average cookie has atleast double the carbs and 4-6x the sugar. So you can enjoy them guilt-free this holiday season without the disheartening taste of artificial sweeteners! One of the ways I cut down on the sugar was by using grain-sweetened chocolate chips. They are easily available at any health food store and a great addition to any recipe that uses chocolate chips!  

1 c. Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour
1/4 c. Ground Oats (can sub whole oats)
1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp. Baking Soda
Dash Sea Salt
1/2 tbl. Vanilla Extract
1/8 c. Raw Cane Sugar
1/4 c. Coconut Oil, melted
1 lg. Egg
2 tbl. Coconut Milk Creamer Hazelnut Flavor
1/2 c. Raw Pecans, chopped
1/4 c. Grain-Sweetened Chocolate Chips
1/4 c. Dried Cranberries

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In small bowl, whisk together flour, oats, cinnamon, baking soda and sea salt. 
  3. In a separate bowl, whick together vanilla extract, sugar, coconut oil, egg and creamer. 
  4. Mix wet ingredients into dry. Stir to combine.
  5. Stir in pecans, chocolate chips and cranberries.
