Chocolate chip & walnut almond cookies

We are off camping for a few days to the beach and as any camper knows you need plenty of scooby snacks on a camping trip.  

Chocolate chip & walnut almond cookies

This recipe is adapted from here

 1/2 cup of unsalted butter
3/4 cup of soft brown sugar
2 eggs
3 cups of almond flour (finely ground blanched almonds)
1/2 tsp of baking soda
pinch of salt
dash of vanilla extract
1/2 cup of chocolate chips
1/2 cup of walnut pieces

Set the oven to 375F.

Cream the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy. Beat the eggs together in a separate cup then gradually add to the sugar and butter, beating all the time.  Next mix in the ground almonds, salt, baking soda & vanilla extract.  Lastly stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts.  NB: the mixture is moister than normal cookie dough. Dollop tablespoonfuls of the mixture onto a lined baking tray.  

They don't spread as much as normal cookies so squash them in.  Bake for 10-12 mins or until they begin to brown.  Leave to cool on the tray for at least 5 mins as they are quite soft to start with.  This quantity & size made nearly 30.

Not a regular chocolate chip cookie but pretty tasty nevertheless!  


  1. Were these good? I love almond anyway so I know I would like them. I will have to try!

    1. Not at all bad! The texture is different so not really cookie like, bit more cakey. They are best eaten straight away (so maybe do 1/2 quantity) as they do go soft. Worth a try! x
