Easy Gluten Free Spicy Cookies with Chocolate, Cranberries and Walnuts

    These gluten-free Christmas cookies are chewy, crunchy and soft at the same time. Their wonderful honey flavor and warm spicy aromas will put you straight into a comforting festive mood.

To create those cookies I used my Gluten Free Gingerbread Cookies Recipe . I decreased the amount of coconut sugar, added chopped walnuts, dried cranberries and black and white chocolate chips. Basically you can use any other nuts or dried fruits. Personally I also love the combination of pecan nuts, white chocolate chips and dried apricot or hazelnut with dried plum and dark chocolate. 

If you are planning to make a Christmas cookie box, this recipe will work perfectly since it is quite quick and easy to make. The cookies stay fresh and delicious for at least 2 weeks but I can’t promise that they won’t disappear much sooner.

So turn on your favorite Christmas song, grab the ingredients and enjoy your Festive Baking!🎶🎶🎶 It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…
