Double Chocolate Almond Flour Cookies




These rich and chewy cookies are free of gluten, grains, and wheat and will 100% satisfy any chocolate craving you may have. I love using almond meal flour for cookies because it’s a healthy alternative to white flour while giving cookies a soft and chewy texture. And let’s also add chocolate chips to them because more chocolate always makes life a little better!






Being the cookie fan that I am, I whipped up these tasty cookies one day when I was craving all of the things – chocolate, nut butter, cookies, sweets, chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate. To my surprise, these only took me 5 minutes of active prep time. Because girls can’t wait long to satisfy their chocolate cravings.









This recipe is free of dairy, wheat, gluten, grains, refined sugars, refined oils, & peanuts.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups almond meal flour

  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk (see notes)
  • ¼ cup almond butter

Method

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and set aside.

2. Combine almond flour, cacao powder, coconut sugar, and baking powder in a large mixing bowl.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg, milk, and almond butter until smooth. Pour this mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients.

4. Stir batter until well combined.

5. Using a small ice cream scoop (or spoon), drop about 2 tablespoons of cookie dough onto the sheet pan. Repeat this until 12 cookies are formed.

6. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes. Cool cookies on a wire rack then enjoy!

Notes
  • Use an almond milk with no added sugars or preservatives.
  • Use chocolate chips or a chocolate bar with minimal, whole ingredients. Choose one with no artificial sweeteners, refined sugars, or refined oils. I like these.
