This recipe was circulating around the internet ages ago, I’m not even sure if it involved peanut butter or almond butter originally. Either way this cookie recipe is so easy. My only complaint is the price of almond butter can be quite steep. This is a one bowl, quick recipe, gluten free, and perfect for Passover! I recommend sprinkling some sea salt on top for the sweet and salty moment. I recommend using mini chocolate chips for these cookies because it makes it easier, but you can use regular sized chocolate chips, you may just need to help each cookie stick together by forming the cookies by hand.
I can’t take credit for this recipe, I didn’t develop it, but I did discover its awesomeness and want to share it with the world. This recipe comes from the back of a bag of almond flour sold at Trader Joes. The honest truth is that I don’t even buy their almond flour-I get mine at Costco, and I love it. I make these cookies on Passover for a friend and her family who can’t eat gluten and honestly, these are as delicious as a regular chocolate chip cookie. I usually need to hide them from my family so they won’t get eaten! These cookies freeze really well are gluten free, and perfect for Passover!
I must have developed this recipe about 2 years ago, so I figured it was about time I log back in here to my trusty old blog and share it here. I know you have heard me complain about baking for Passover before, but that is a thing of the past! I have so many amazing Passover dessert recipes at this point that I named myself the queen of Passover baking.
Anyway…here’s what happened with this recipe, and it’s what usually happens when I’m developing a new recipe. I saw a bunch of chocolate crinkle recipes floating around for Passover and I wanted to try one. I got bored of my flourless double chocolate nut cookies and decided to try something new. Needless to say, the very popular recipe I tried was basically a fail. So I figured I should try to come up with my own. If you remember a few years ago I added vanilla pudding mix to chocolate chip cookies and I came up with the best Passover chocolate chip cookies of all time! So I wondered if I could use powdered chocolate pudding mix to make this recipe work. And it did. I did it. We did it. Guys, I present you with flourless, gluten free, Passover, gooey, decadent, chocolate crinkle cookies. And they freeze well. And you don’t need a mixer to make them. And the dough freezes well in case you need fresh cookies at a moments notice. Enjoy!
