Chocolate Almond Cookies (Vegan Cookies Recipe)

Spread the love

These are cloud cookies. They are super soft and magically delicious πŸ˜‰ I love these Chocolate Almond Cookies. Plus they’re vegan! Yay.

Chocolate Almond Cookies (vegan)

My first time baking with almond flour has turned to be extremely successful and I am so psyched to share today’s recipe with you guys. Β These cookies are simply amazing. I honestly had no idea how good these vegan cookies would turn out until I bit into one.. oh my gosh. I am so so happy I made these Chocolate Almond Cookies – this combination makes this recipe simply divine!

They are fluffy and soft inside yet the exterior is a bit harder. They have a beautiful almond flavor and it pairs wonderfully with the chocolate chunks. Every chocolatey bite feels like I’m biting into a rather thick chocolate almond cloud. I guess cloud isn’t a good description because these aren’t airy. But that’s why it’d be like a stormy cloud. You know those clouds that gather in the sky before the storm? They are thick and dark.. yeah, I think that’s a good comparison.

Except these cookies bring joy. I guess storms usually don’t. Unless you’re cuddled up at home with nothing to do but sleep to the sound of the storm.. oh yeah, I love falling asleep to the sound of rain and some delicate thunder. Nothing extreme though cause then I get worried.

Haha how did I turn this post from a cookie description to talking about sleeping? Ah who cares. What’s important is that you NEED to make these! Not only are they delicious, they are also vegan and reduced fat! How awesome is that?

My parents were obsessed with these too and liked these the most out of the creations I made that were spiced chili chocolate cookies and chocolate-covered pumpkin banana bread muffin balls (coming soon!). They said this tasted like a marcipan but better. They also preferred it cold while I prefer it slightly warmed in a microwave so that the chocolate becomes beautifully melty. Whichever way you prefer to eat your cookies, you will not be disappointed by these – I guarantee it!

Yeah, you’re welcome. πŸ˜‰

  1. These look great! I love baking with almond flour too. Always gives great texture and flavor!

  2. You are too funny! I love your descripiton of the cookies! They look amazing and I too love baking with almond flour!!! I have the Stevia Fiber Blend, I need to start using it!!

  3. They look wonderful! Love the crackle.

  4. Yaaaaaaay I’ve been waiting for this! These cookies are SO good. Thanks for the recipe!

  5. These cookies look amazing. I haven’t done a lot of baking with almond flour, but you’ve pretty much convinced me to pick up a bag and give it a shot – I’d love to bite into a chocolatey storm cloud πŸ™‚

  6. I’ve been experimenting with almond flour lately too, and I love it! I’m surprised every time at how great the baked goods come out. These look amazing!

    • Me too! although I have tried using it alone and it didn’t work out. It works out usually when I use it along with a flour that includes gluten though, such as the sprouted whole wheat. I’ve only tried using almond flour alone just once though and I’m sure I’ll try again soon πŸ™‚ thanks for stopping by!

  7. Love using almond flour… and combining it with coconut flour too. Good for you for experimenting, and especially when you are happy with the results! They do look good.

  8. Almond flour makes everything yummy. Watch out. You’ll get addicted! Thanks for joining the party at One Creative Weekend!

  9. These are A-mazing! I did a few substitutions to use what i had at home:

    Instead of wheat flour I used teff flour, to make them gluten free
    Instead of stevia fiber I used hemp, and I sprinkled a bit more cane juice sugar. i think the hemp made up for the whole wheat flour protein.
    Instead of coffee granules I used baking espresso powder, 2 tsp
    Instead of coconut oil, olive oil
    Instead of lemon juice, I used orange (I love chocolate with orange)
    I chopped bittersweet chocolate for the chips

    Thanks for an awesome recipe!

    • Thank you for the feedback! I will have to look into more gluten free flours like Teff. In so glad it turned out well for you with the Subs! I love these chocolatey pillows of delight but I bet they tasted even better with the orange… Hmmmm you have me an idea… πŸ˜‰

  10. I am just getting inspired by all your fantastic photos. Beautiful! I’m wondering if I could replace the whole wheat flour with another gluten free flour. I would love to try to make these gluten free for my mom!

  11. Haha, I just realized the commenter above left a gluten free version. Okay, I’m definitely making these now!

    • Yess! Please let me know if you do and what flour you use. I have yet to try it out using all GF so I’m definitely curious to hear your response as well! Seriously, these were my favorite cookies I ever made so I know you will not be disappointed. Are you all gluten free?

  13. Hi Kammie! I just received your ping back letting me know you made my recipe! Thank you so much for making it! Your cookies turned out beautifully! Isn’t almond flour just the best?! It gives such moisture and flavor to the cookie, so you don’t really need a major fat source. I love how you used the almond extract…I need to try that next time πŸ™‚

    • Wow the pingbacks take a long time huh? You totally need to try the almond extract! It makes the cookies very similarly flavored to a marzipan, my parents were in LOVE.

      • Yeah I just got the ping back this morning! Crazy! Yeah, this is one of two of my most popular cookie recipes among family and friends…al non-vegans! It’s between these and my Supersized Chocolate Chip Cookies. You should try those sometime too. You have a beautiful blog btw πŸ™‚

        • Supersized. Chocolate. Cookies. Um everything about that is a huge YES so I will be checking that recipe out. Thanks hun, I am actually going to be doing a redesign soon (in the next month hopefully)! I hope you’ll like it!

          • Yes! Check them out and read the reviews…they are made with pecan butter and you’ll swear they are full of butter. My favorite ever. I can’t wait to see your new design…although its already gorgeous. I shared your blog on Facebook too πŸ™‚

            • You are just the sweetest Brandi!! Thank you! Those do look amazing, SO thick! I love it. They are pinned and will be waiting for me to make them very soon πŸ™‚

  14. Ok oops my profile showed your name before..haha. Fixed it!
