Darneed Best Gluten-Free & Grain-Free Cookies in a KIT

Cranberry Cookies in a Jar copy

I love Elana Amsterdam’s theory about cooking as well as her sincere desire to find healthy alternatives to avoiding the highs and lows of blood sugar without giving up the taste. I have taken her choc. chip recipe and made a fun gift out of  it and made ony a minor adjustment to suit my needs.


I hope you enjoy and please write in or share your pictures of how your gift-jar turned out, before giving it away.

Place in a  mason jar in layers : use pop top or screw top mason jars

2-1/2 cups blanched almond flour

½ tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. baking soda

½  cup dark chocolate OPTIONS: or 1/4 cup chocolate and 1/4 cup chopped nuts OR 1/4 cup dried cranberries and 1/4 cup chocolate OR 1/4 cup dried cranberries and white chocolate chips- just be imaginative, it is fun and easy!

Create a little decorative gift tag that says this:


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees

In a bowl mix”½ cup light agave

½ cup grapeseed

1 tsp. vanilla-optional( I leave this out)

Add your wet ingredients to your dry( in the jar)

Mix real well – it will be  moist

Refrig 30 minutes

Drop onto parchment paper as 1 TBL balls

Flatten them down to about 1/3 inch thick

Bake approx 7-10 minutes

Thank you Elana Amsterdam

  1. What a great idea! My sister is just starting a gluten-free diet. She’ll love it! Thanks for the recipe. I can include that with the gift! I like using the baking soda that is aluminum free.

  2. Hello! The recipes here are great. Thanks for having this site. I just found a recipe for Eggplant Parmesan that I LOVE! The eggplant flavor is like beef, but without the fat and calories. It’s a really nice substitute for meat. Visit my site if you’d like to read more. Thanks again – great site!
