Best Ever Double Chocolate Almond Cookies

Sinfully rich and decadent double chocolate almond cookies that are totally worth the splurge!

Course Dessert, Snack
Servings 18 large cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • ¾ cup brown sugar lightly packed
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 cup all purpose flour I used nutri-flour “tastes like white” blend
  • cup whole wheat flour
  • cup cocoa
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ cup raw almonds roughly chopped
  • ¾ cup dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together butter and both sugars until smooth. Add the egg and vanilla, and mix well.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Gradually beat into butter mixture.
  4. Stir in almonds and chocolate chips until well combined.
  5. Roll into balls (I used a small ice cream scoop to ration them out) and place at least a couple inches apart on the baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes (depending on size). They will be a bit firm on the top, but soft in the center (don't over bake, as you want them ooey gooey on the inside). Remove from oven and let sit for a couple minutes before you transfer them to the cooling rack.
