Chewy almond butter chocolate chip or chunk cookies.

One almond butter chocolate chunk cookie.


  • 1 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup almond butter, at room temperature (I used Trader Joe's Almond Butter with Flax Seeds)
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 organic large egg, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 (about 2.5 oz) cup dark chocolate, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Whisk together the dry ingredients in a medium bowl. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, almond butter, and brown sugar. Stir in the egg and vanilla. Add the flour in thirds and stir until smooth. Fold in the chocolate chunks. Roll the mixture into golf ball–sized balls (about 1 1/2 tablespoons) and slightly flatten. Bake for 10 minutes, in a nonstick baking pan, rotating the pan halfway through baking time. Cool the cookies on a rack before serving.
