  • ¾ cup almond flour I like Bob's Red Mill
  • ¼ cup tapioca flour
  • cup cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 large egg, room temperature


  • Preheat oven to 350º F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Using the paddle attachment cream butter and sugars together in a stand mixer. Beat for a few minutes until light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides when needed.
  • Add egg and vanilla and mix well.
  • In another medium bowl whisk together flours, salt, soda and cocoa powder.
  • With the mixer on low, slowly add the flour mixture to the mixer and gently mix until combined. Remember to scrape down the sides with a spatula.
  • Add chocolate chunks and stir.
  • Using a medium ice cream or cookie dough scooper drop cookies onto parchment paper. Cook for about 10-12 minutes. Take them out when they are still soft in the middle because they will set. Let them hang out on cookie sheet for five minutes then carefully transfer them to a rack to cool.


These cookies can be stored in a glass container on the counter for 4-5 days.
Because gluten free flour is so tricky, I would not recommend substituting other flours in these cookies.
I sprinkled more sugar on top before putting in the oven.
