Almondmazing Cookies – Gluten Free Almond Cookies with Dark Chocolate Almond Topping
When I made these cookies I gave one to my husband and as he was trying them I asked him what I should call them…he said ‘I’d call them amazing’ haha, so then after finishing the cookie he said ‘call them Almondmazing’ I love the name, and hence, here is an amazing almond cookie that is gluten free with a wonderful dark chocolate crushed almond topping. Sooo delish, and by my calculations, a batch of 20 only has 60 calories per cookie!
- 1 Cup Almond Flour
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1 Tbs Brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 Tbs Coconut oil (or you could butter)
- ½ tsp almond extract
- handful of whole almonds
- 1 oz 60% dark chocolate
- Preheat oven to 325. In a microwave safe bowl add the coconut oil and then microwave it for 30 seconds to a minute until melted. Add the egg and stir well. Next add the sugars, stir, then add the almond flour, and almond extract and combine all ingredients well.
- In a food processor combine a small handful of almonds and 1 oz of dark chocolate (it was 2 squares of the chocolate I had). Pulse until they are well chopped.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, spoon cookie dough about 1 inch apart, create a little indent in the middle/top of the cookie. With another spoon, sprinkle a little of the dark chocolate almond topping on each cookie. Before putting them in the oven press any little pieces of topping into the cookie. Bake for 12-14 minutes. After taking them out of the oven, allow them to rest for a few minutes, then transfer to a cookie sheet. Serve warm or cold, they're Almondmazing!
