  • Large bowl
  • Whisk
  • Baking sheet
  • Parchment paper or a silicone mat


  • cup butter soft
  • cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder unsweetened
  • 1 cup almond flour


  • In a large bowl, cream the butter with the sugar.
  • Add the cocoa powder to it and mix some more until fully incorporated.
  • Lastly, add the almond flour and mix until it holds as a dough.
  • Wrap it in cling film and refrigerate it for 30 minutes to an hour.
  • Before getting the dough out of the fridge, preheat the oven to 350F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat.
  • Using an ice cream scoop, scoop the dough and place it on the tray. Make sure to space them enough as the cookie will spread a little.
  • Bake for 14 minutes at 350F.
  • Allow the cookies to cool before eating them or they will crumble.


What makes the almond flour cookie so crumbly? 
This cookie is meant to be crumbly and buttery. Since there is fat (the butter) and no gluten, it is inevitably crumbly, however, this is the texture we are looking for here, buttery, melt-in-your-mouth chocolate almond flour cookies.
