Recently I was sent a bottle of Fonseca BIN 27 Port wine. I was asked to pair a creative cookie recipe with it.

I pondered things a smidge & decided that Port would pair well with dark chocolate, cranberries & pecans…I had never eaten cookies & sipped wine at the same time before. Now I know what I was missing.

Let’s sip & bake together shall we? I’m entering these cookies in a Facebook People’s Choice Award, you can check that out & vote for me if you wish.

I found this on the Fonesca website: The rich black fruit flavours of Bin 27 are a perfect match for chocolate and berry fruit dishes.

 So I guess it makes sense that my cookies have chocolate & berries. It was a hunch and I went with it.

These cookies (and the wine) are perfect for chilly days ~ cuddled up by the fire…

These are sweetened with maple syrup and baked with a blend of blanched almond flour, oat flour and old fashioned rolled oats. They have the perfect crumb.

These would be perfect for holiday cookie exchanges…since they are really crumbly (yum) chill them in the fridge for extra firmness before serving.

{Gluten-Free} Oatmeal, Chocolate Chunk & Cranberry Pecan Cookies

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons (1/2 cup) Melted Coconut Oil
  • 1/3 cup Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tablespoons Water
  • 2 large Eggs, whisked
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine Sea Salt
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons (125 g) Gluten Free Oat Flour
  • 3/4 cup (60 g) Gluten Free Old Fashioned Rolled Oats (not quick cook)
  • 1/2 cup (52 g) Blanched Almond Meal
  • 1/2 cup (65 g) chopped Pecans
  • 3/4 cup (100 g) Chopped Dark Chocolate Chunks
  • 1/3 cup (40 g) Dried Cranberries

Method

  • Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F with the rack in the middle. Prepare a rimmed cookie sheet with parchment or a Silpat liner. Mix together wet ingredients. In another bowl whisk together dry ingredients (save the chocolate, cranberries & pecans to fold in last.) Combine the wet and dry ingredients, gently fold in the chocolate, cranberries and pecans to form cookie batter.
  • Take heaping tablespoons of batter and place them on the cookie sheet. Press into 1/2 inch thick discs. Bake for 10-13 minutes until cookies are golden brown. Let them cool. Store in a cool, dry place ~ the fridge is great!

Marla! These looks fantastic! I will definitely be making these over the holidays, my family is oatmeal cookie obsessed! There really is nothing better. On the other hand, I will be making a huge paleo thanksgiving. My sister has celiac and is allergic to dairy as well :/ so we try to keep it so that she can eat everything. It has been a huge success. Oh, and she has incorporated gf oats back into her diet so we are for sure trying these! Can’t wait! Thanks for linking up my cookies at the end of this post :)
