& Chewy!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Almond flour: the base of these almond cookies! Feel free to use almond meal.
  • Gluten-free flour: for added texture and to help bind everything together.
  • Baking soda: the leavening agent used to give the cookies a little lift.
  • Maple Syrup: to add sweetness. Feel free to swap it for agave, instead!
  • Almond Butter: for richness & flavor!
  • Chocolate Chips: for the smooth, chocolate cover.
  • Coconut Oil: to prevent the chocolate from burning and to help it spread and harden easily.
  • Sliced Almond: for added garnish and a bit of crunch!

How to make Chocolate-Covered Almond Butter Cookies:

Combine the dry ingredients.

In a large bowl, whisk together the almond meal, gluten-free flour, and baking soda.

Add the wet ingredients.

In the same large bowl, add the maple syrup and almond butter. Mix well until all the ingredients have been evenly incorporated. The dough mixture will be sticky!

Scoop out the dough

While your oven is preheating to 350, scoop out even-sized balls of cookie dough and place them on a baking sheet lined with a non-stick surface. Flatten the cookies out into the desired thickness and shape, and bake for 12 minutes.


Once the cookies are done baking, immediately transfer them to a wire cooling rack to cool completely. In the meantime, melt chocolate and coconut oil together until slick. Once the cookies are completely cool, coat or dip them in the melted chocolate and shake off the excess. While the chocolate is cooling, top the cookies with sliced almonds for an additional pop.
