Cranberry-Almond Cookies

Cranberries and almonds – a perfect combination for cookies!

I am a huge fan of these home-made cookies for three reasons: They are best when they’re right out of the oven, they contain no processed sugar, and they are high in protein. I love taking them to work or school as a snack, or for having them with coffee in the afternoon.
