Cabernet Cookies

gluten free cabernet grape seed flour cookies

I’m still on my grape seed flour kick and made these yummy Cabernet Cookies the other day which were “all gone” quite quickly.  If you like the combination of red wine and chocolate, be sure to give these treats a try.

Grape seed flour is full of antioxidants, fiber and protein and adds a nice flavor and texture to baked goods.  I’m loving experimenting with it these days.  One more super food to add to the repertoire.

Cabernet Cookies


  1. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl
  2. Stir together wet ingredients in a smaller bowl
  3. Mix wet ingredients into dry
  4. Form ½ inch balls and press onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet
  5. Bake at 350° for 7-10 minutes

I was thrilled to find that Alltop, an RSS aggregator, recently added elanaspantry.com to both their food and recipe pages.  Head on over and take a look at Alltop for some other fun bloggers you can follow.  And I was super psyched to see that the author of one of my favorite sites, Small Notebook decided that The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook is her absolute favorite cookbook.  Way cool!

    Very interesting. I am pondering ordering some hard-to-find flours. I may have to seriously consider this one.

    Wondering if we can sub the grapeseed flour with something else? as it is really hard to find and expensive to ship here to Canada

    I made these this morning and they were the first truly successful completely yummy cookies I’ve made in 4 years. The extra flour works really well for the lumpy look.
    Thanks for this recipe. Keep posting!

  4. Oh, I definitely want to try these! I’ve had Cabernet sorbet and loved it + I’m obsessed with dark chocolate, so these look PERFECT. Thank you!

    these look wonderful. do the antioxidants survive the baking process? thx

  6. So interesting! I love a glass of cabernet with a piece of dark chocolate. Of course, the other day I saw a bottle of chocolate cabernet wine – like chocolate flavored wine, I guess? Not appetizing. In contrast, these babies sound delish!

    Grapes are sprayed with many different herbicides and pesticides. I don’t think I would buy grapeseed flour unless it is made from organically grown seeds.

    My grapeseed flour arrived over the weekend. I’m using it to make tiramisu tonight. I’m also very excited to try grapeskin flour, which should arrive later this week!

  9. Hi there!
    I emailed ApresVin, and they sent me a very special delivery of their Merlot and Riesling Grapeseed Flours! I’d never heard of such a thing until I found your blog, so thank you. I made Merlot Grapeseed Flour Graham Crackers, and they are incredible!
    I posted them on my blog too.

  10. Hey Elana,
    I learned about Grapeseed Flour on your blog, Apres Vin sent me some samples, and I love it. Most recently I made Riesling Flour Shortbread. Check it out on my blog: http://sweetpotatosoul.blogspot.com/2010/04/april-14-2010.html

    These look fantastic! I just bought grapeseed flour yesterday (have been gluten free for 2 years and have never heard of it before!) I’m wondering if one could use coconut flour instead of almond flour? Or a mixture of both? I have lots of coconut flour to use up and love the flavor… have you ever tried a coconut flour variation? Or any other recipe combining grapeseed flour and coconut flour?
