40g caster sugar

110g light brown sugar

4g salt

40g Chopped / flaked almonds

112g Dark chocolate chunks

208g Plain flour

20g cocoa powder

1/2 tsp Bicarbonate of soda

1 tsp vanilla extract

80g almond butter

100g golden syrup

40g warm water


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

  2. Pour the caster sugar, soft light brown sugar, flour, almond pieces, salt and chocolate pieces into a large bowl. (For best results sieve the cocoa, flour and bicarbonate of soda).

  3. Mix the almond butter, warm water and golden syrup together and add to the bowl.

  4. Mix together with a wooden spoon and then bring the dough together using your hands.

  5. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Split your dough into 8 golf ball-sized balls and flatten slightly with the palm of your hand.

  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes (This will vary depending on thickness – if the edges of cookie feel firm but centre is still soft, it should be ready to take out).

  7. Leave to cool for 15 minutes.


Swaps:  you can swap the almonds for pecans, hazelnuts, even walnuts if you prefer
