  • 1/2 cup unsweetened dried coconut
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 dried cranberries (look for unsweetened or low-sugar)


Preheat oven to 325ºF

  • Toast dried coconut for 5-10 minutes or just until golden on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  • Cream coconut oil for about 2 minutes in a stand mixer or just until fluffy.
  • Add the flours and baking powder and continue to mix on low.
  • Add egg and vanilla.
  • When a nice ball of dough is formed, mix in cranberries and toasted coconut until just combined.
  • Roll out dough about 1/4 of an inch thick. It will be delicate to work with until baked and cooled.
  • Cut into simple shapes, use a spatula to transfer to baking tray if necessary.
  • Bake for 18 minutes or until just starting to brown around the edges.

The shortbread will be delicate until cooled, so let the treats cool on the baking tray.
