Description

You really should make these melt in your mouth, flourless vegan chocolate cookies. Our gluten-free vegan chocolate cookies make a great Passover cookie. No one will believe they are Kosher for Passover and flourless. They taste so good! 


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/3 cups vegan chocolate chips, semi-sweet or dark. See note 1
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil or coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp almond butter, at room temperature. See note 2
  • 2/3 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 cup potato starch
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup roasted hazelnuts, roughly chopped. See note 3
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper
  2. Melt chocolate chips with the oil in a large bowl, over a double boiler or in the microwave ( at 20-second increments, stirring each time). Once melted, whisk in almond butter and mix well.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine almond meal, potato starch, cocoa powder, sugar and salt. Add to melted chocolate and mix using a wooden spoon, until well incorporated. Fold in the hazelnuts
  4. The cookie dough will be loose, similar to a brownie batter. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of batter into one spoon, and with the help of another spoon push the batter into the lined baking sheet. Try to keep the shape in a circle.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes and let them cool completely, before removing them from the tray.

Notes

  1. You can use your favorite chocolate here.  The darker the chocolate the more intense the chocolate flavor.  We found that mixing 45% cocoa chocolate chips with 70% cocoa chocolate chips yields the best results.
  2. You may use peanut butter or any seed butter.  But we like the way these cookies taste with almond butter the best.  If the almond butter seems a little dry place it in the microwave for 5-10 seconds to soften or mix well in the jar.
  3. You can use any nuts here, walnuts, pecans almonds, etc.  Just make sure they are roughly chopped, so you can get that crunch and texture.
