Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Cookies (gluten free and flourless)

You must try these cookies. Dark Chocolate Almond Butter Cookies, that is. I made them and they taste so good!

What I really like about these cookies (besides it being delicious!) is that it uses simple ingredients. You won't believe it. Almond butter, eggs, honey, dark chocolate (if you want to add it) and baking powder. The baking powder part is not necessary, but I like how it makes the cookies expand more. 

I was really surprised that they solidified after baking. They have no flour in them. But they turned out pretty good. You can't tell it's flourless and the texture is very similar to a regular cookie. They are chewy. 

I guess I should give you guys the recipe now. Here it is. 

  • 1 cup almond butter (I used the freshly ground one from the store)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • chopped pieces of dark chocolate (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. 
  2. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl (except the chocolate) until it's smooth and creamy. 
  3. Fold in the chocolate. 
  4. Drop tablespoon size balls of dough onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. This made 12 cookies. 
  5. Take out, let them cool and enjoy! 
I hope you guys enjoy these cookies.

In non-food related news, I still have a bruise from getting my blood drawn on Wednesday. It's always so hard to find the vein. They sometimes have to poke me a few times until they find one. I could go into more detail on that but I'll save you guys from the details.


Have you made flourless cookies before?
What's your experience getting your blood drawn?
