A Sweet Treat: Chocolate Almond Meal Cookies

Updated: Jun 10, 2022

Whether you adhere to a gluten free diet or not, these yummy little chunks of goodness will be sure to become a treat time staple in your household. Big thank you to Helen on Aries for the submission!

12 oz. Ghiradelli bittersweet chocolate chips*

4 ½ Tablespoons butter

3 eggs beaten

½ C granulated sugar

1 1/8 C almond meal**

Granulated sugar for rolling***

Melt the butter and chocolate together.

Separately mix the eggs and sugar, then combine with the chocolate/butter mixture.

Add the almond meal.

Refrigerate covered 4 hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 325°

Roll the cold dough into walnut-sized balls, lightly pressing each ball into the sugar.

Place the balls on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.

Bake for 12 minutes.

Helen's Notes:

*I sometimes replace a bit of the chocolate with a bit of chili chocolate. (editor side note- I couldn't find "bittersweet" chips, so I just used the darkest ones I could find and they came out great!)

**I use almond flour (as did I. Couldn't find almond meal)

***I use sparkling sugar (I used good 'ole regular sugar)

I also add some salt, a little more than a pinch, and add vanilla unless I use chili chocolate.

There you have it, simple and delicious, like all recipes should be! Please send your recipe submissions to us at We would love to hear from you!
