When I saw Lauren’s suggestions for Valentine’s Day treats included this cookie, I knew I had to try it! Lauren has a wonderful blog that makes incredibly delicious and healthy versions of food that everyone loves. Unfortunately, I didn’t have any chocolate peanut butter on hand, but I did have some of this chocolate almond butter on hand.
Since I wanted to make the cookies immediately, I decided to adapt her recipe for what I had on hand and make Flourless Chocolate Almond Butter Cookies.
Reasons to make these cookies:
1. They are deliciously light and fudgey at the same time.
2. This is the easiest cookie recipe I have ever made. 3 steps, that is it!
3. Portion control! This recipe makes 8 cookies. If you are nervous about eating the entire batch, you can’t get yourself into too much trouble*. The cookies are pretty big, too.
*Each cookie comes out to 5 weightwatchers points+, as a result, the entire batch is 40 points+ which is less than the extra weekly points you get.
Step 1: Mix together almond butter, brown sugar, whisked egg white, baking soda, vanilla extract and salt
Step 2: Stir in chocolate chips
Step 3: Bake cookies
Did I say they were easy?

What is the easiest dessert you have made?
I can vouch for these – DELICIOUS
Those look amazing! I’m craving some serious chocolate right now. Those cookies look like just the key. :-D
I LOVE that this recipe only makes 8 cookies! You know me and my small-scale desserts! I’ll have to give this one a try! Thanks for sharing :D
Yay! Your cookies look delicious – I have to try them with almond butter next time:).
After tasting your DELICIOUS cookie recently, I knew I wanted to make it part of my “must have” cookie recipes! It was moist and fudgy. And to think it was as simple as four ingredients, how can you not get excited??!!!
Woah! SO easy… and I like the sound of fudgey! :)
Beautiful recipe, doll! You know how much I love a good cookie recipe and these look amazing. I just need to get my hands on some chocolate almond butter before this weekend. :)
Oh my gosh, I have to try these. Have you tried Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut butter? I am going to give this a try with that. Fantastic.
I haven’t tried it yet but I am very tempted. The other day I made homemade chocolate almond butter, though, and that was pretty amazing!
I am very happy for the small batch too! I have been making/eating way too many cookies as of late. Little batches let me try more ideas!
YUM YUM YUM! :)
Wow these do look super easy and sooo rich and decadant! I must give these a shot…I love how they only make 8. Portion control at its best! ;)
These look AWESOME! I can not wait to try them! I am having dinner guests on Sunday and I think I am going to make these for dessert!
Love your site :)
This goes great with the Almonds for Heart Month post I just put up last night!

Thanks for the nice note! Please let me know how they turn out if you make them.
So easy. Perfect for me!
Wow! Pretty amazing. Although, I have to say I’m not a huge fan of the dark almond spread. It tastes lovely, but it’s not as healthy as the other MaraNatha products, which is kind of a bummer. Although, I really shouldn’t talk since I’ve been eating marshmallow fluff icing all week. Ridic!
Love how simple these are!
I actually made homemade chocolate almond butter with just roasted almonds and a little melted semi-sweet chocolate which could be a better option.
I was wondering what you were up to with the almond butter! :) These look amazing and super easy. I always need a sweet treat after dinner – even if it’s very small – these look like the perfect thing to satisfy the sweet tooth!
Wow, I love almond butter and I have never heard of dark chocolate almond spread. This looks amazing and so does that cookie!
Mmm, these look amazing. I haven’t seen chocolate almond spread before. Only regular almond butter. Where did you get yours from?
I have seen it at health food stores but actually got it at Walmart…. it is just so much cheaper there!
Recipes with built-in portion control are just about perfect! Love these!
oh my gosh, those look incredible! easiest dessert – chocolate bark!
What a great recipe. The cookies look wonderful…love that soft texture.
These cookies look awesome! I love the almond butter too!
Easy cookie-caught my attention-and almond butter-WOW YES PLEASE!
Great idea for those cookies! BUT, I read your title as “delicious tool” so I read your post about 4 times, trying to figure out where you hid your “tool” review! Duh. I guess what you can take from that is I’m pretty dedicated to your site!! Haha.
Do you also find MaraNatha almond butter to be thoroughly addictive? I can’t control myself around the honey version.
These cookies sound AMAZING. And I love that they’re truly not bad for you. You just did my thighs a big favor.
Mmm, these are gorgeous and relatively healthy too. Great combo in my books!
I’ve never tried a flourless cookie before, but these look delicious!
I need to find some dark chocolate almond butter asap! I do like that there is a 8 cookie limit to this b/c my cookie recipes come out to about 24 and I’m not so good with portions!
I have not tried a flour-less cookie either and this one has peaked my culinary interest!
wow those cookies look amazing! yummy! thanks for sharing this.
These look too good to be true! I love that it only makes 8 because when I have 24-36 cookies in my house it makes me feel guilty to throw them away – so where do they go? in ma bellly. not good! haha
oh wow, those look awesome! and so easy! i don’t know if i’ve ever seen chocolate almond butter in the store, but maybe i just wasn’t looking…nutella would probably work in there just fine, right?
You probably could use Nutella since it has a similar consistency and fat content
Apparently, the type of chocolate almond butter you use makes all the difference. I used Natural Nectar Almond Cocoa Spread from Whole Foods instead of the MaraNantha and it was a huge fail. I couldn’t find MaraNantha at Meijer nor Whole Foods. I was making them for a dinner party and switched to a similar recipe. I love that you include WW points. I am doing Weight Watchers but wasn’t looking for a WW recipe. If I ever find MaraNantha Chocolate Almond Butter, I will try the recipe again!!
Hi Andrea – I’m sorry to hear the cookie didn’t workout with a different almond butter. Let me know if you try them again and they turn out!
