  • cups almond flour
  • ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¼ cup almond butter (use the drippy kind)
  • ½ cup coconut sugar
  • 1 Tbsp red food coloring
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet or milk chocolate)
  • ¾ cup nutella (or your favorite chocolate hazelnut spread)


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Then line a separate tray with parchment paper and scoop out 1 teaspoon amounts of your Nutella onto it. Place the tray in the freezer for 10-20 minutes while your prepare the rest of your dough.
  • Mix the almond flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt together in a bowl. Set it aside.
  • Then in a larger bowl, whisk the egg. Add your vanilla, almond butter and coconut sugar and mix it together with a large spoon. Stir in your food coloring.
  • Next, add your dry ingredients to the wet and mix until a sticky dough forms. Stir in your chocolate chips.
  • Then take 1 HEAPING tablespoon of dough and form it around 1 of your frozen Nutella drops to form the shape of a ball. Place the ball on your prepared baking sheet and flatten it slightly. Repeat the process with your remaining dough. (These cookies don’t spread much at all so the shape you form them into will most likely be the shape that they stay.)
  • Bake for 10-11 minutes. (Cookies might look slightly underdone when you take them out of the oven but they'll firm up as they cool.) Let the cookies rest on the baking sheet for at least 3 minutes before transferring them to a rack to cool.
  • Serve immediately for ultimate gooiness!
