Duration35 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Prep Time10 mins


Dry Ingredients
  • 43 g Caster sugar
  • 112 g Soft light brown sugar
  • 4 g Salt
  • 40 g Almond Pieces For best results, use flaked almonds lightly smashed up, but whole almonds, chopped into small pieces will also work
  • 112 g Dark chocolate pieces
  • 205 g Flour
  • 20 g Cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp Bicarbonate of soda
Wet Ingredients
  • 65 g Coconut oil
  • 72 g Almond butter
  • 100 g Golden syrup
  • 40 g Water


  • Preheat the oven to 180? (356 Fahrenheit)
  • Pour the caster sugar, soft light brown sugar, flour, almond pieces, salt and chocolate pieces into a large bowl. (For best results sieve the cocoa, flour and bicarbonate of soda). 
  • Mix the almond butter, oil and golden syrup together and add to the bowl. 
  • Mix together with a wooden spoon and then bring the dough together using your hands. 
  • Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Split your dough into 8 golf ball-sized balls and flatten slightly with the palm of your hand 
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes (This will vary depending on thickness â?? if the edges of cookie feel firm but centre is still soft, it should be ready to take out). 
  • Leave to cool for 15 minutes. Enjoy!
