1 cup unsalted almond butter
1/2 cup sugar (or a little less, if you prefer)
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
dash of ground cinnamon
1 bar (1.75 ounces) dark chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup unsweetened or sweetened coconut flakes


Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a bowl, combine almond butter, sugar, egg, vanilla, and cinnamon and mix well. Add chocolate, oats, cranberries, and coconut.

Drop by rounded tablespoons onto a baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 13 minutes. Cool for at least 5 minutes on baking sheet to avoid crumbled cookies.


Makes 12 to 18 cookies.
