Super Quick and Crunchy Almond-Cranberry-Cookies

Todays topic at the Vegan MoFo is all about lunchboxes and let me tell you – I’m a pro at packing them. I’ve made some very nice ones for myself to take to school or to work, as well as my boyfriend to take with him to work. The boys at his office are either vegans or very vegan friendly so they stick to ordering vegan food in or getting some vegan burgers or hot dogs. But it’s far away from healthy and I don’t feel to great about him eating all this stuff every day. There’s some kind of mommy mode activating I guess. It’s even worse though when he’s on tour with his band Marathonmann. Well it’s only worse for me and my mommy mode, because then I have zero control about the food he’s eating. By the way, I like to think that I’m no control freak (some might think differently though). It’s just that I’ve seen him taking care of himself and it’s really not great food-wise…

Tomorrow I will have to say goodbye to him once again since they’re going on tour, but gladly it will only be for a week. They just recently released a special edition vinyl with a remake of their song ‘Abschied’ and now they’re hitting the road again with 6 acoustic shows (plus one special show in our hometown as a finale). Together with the song they also released this new video:

Well lets focus on todays recipe for a moment. I decided to pack him some cookies, since they stay fresh for a few days, are easy to eat in the tourbus and cause a nice sugar rush when needed. Loaded with cranberries and nuts they are also great to enjoy for breakfast. They are wrapped up in no time (less than 30 minutes), are super crunchy and have a caramel-y flavour. Those Almond-Cranberry-Cookies are perfect for your afternoon tea or as a special sugary treat for your kids.

  1. I don’t know if it’s just me or if everybody else encountering issues
    with your blog. It appears like some of the written text within your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know
    if this is happening to them as well? This may be a problem with my browser because
    I’ve had this happen before. Appreciate it

    1. Hi Ute, I’m sorry to hear that you have complications reading the blog. I checked it on different laptops and my phone and there weren’t any problems. Right now Christian isn’t around to straighten out where the problem lies, but I will ask him to see if there is anything wrong as soon as he is back. Thanks for letting me know though and also for at least trying to read my blog 😉 X Sonja
