As the weather cools, we seem to be drawn to comfort foods, and these little cookies with their warm spices, served with a cup of tea, will really fill the bill. Did you know that spices like cinnamon, ginger and cloves really do help us to warm up by increasing circulation?

The additions of “golden berries,” also known as Cape gooseberries, are not only a big nutritional boost, but they add great flavor and chewy texture. Alternatively, you could use fruit juice-sweetened dried cranberries.


1-cup smooth almond butter
1/3-cup xylitol plus 2 packets stevia
1 egg
1/2-teaspoon baking soda
1-teaspoon cinnamon
1-teaspoon ginger
1/4-teaspoon cloves
1/4 cup dried golden berries, rehydrated and coarsely chopped*


Pre-heat oven to 350°.

Mix all ingredients together well. Scoop out portions with a small ice cream scoop, then slice each portion in half. (Each cookie should be about 1 tablespoon.) Using the palms of your hands, roll each half portion into a small ball. Place on parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake for 12-13 minutes. Carefully lift cookies with a spatula to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely before serving or storing in an airtight container.

*To rehydrate dried golden berries, place them in a small dish and cover with boiling water. Allow to sit for 10 minutes. Drain and chop.
