Healthy Hot Cocoa Cookies

Healthy Hot Cocoa Cookies are like a cup of cozy hot chocolate in the form of little treats! They’re comforting and are gluten-free, flourless, and made with simple ingredients.

Prep: 5Cook: 15Total: 20 minutes
Yield 12 cookies 1x


  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 cup runny almond butter, cold. (whole foods brand is great)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup mini marshmallows


  1. Mix together egg, coconut sugar, almond butter, and vanilla.
  2. Stir in cocoa powder and baking soda (gets thick here)
  3.  Add in chocolate chips and mini marshmallows – they may not stick in the batter but just form them so extra marshmallows and chocolate chips are on top of the cookies, making them look ‘loaded’.
  4. **If your nut butter was warm, chill dough for 30 minutes so they do not spread.
  5.  Roll into balls and flatten slightly.
  6. Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes.
  7. Let cool completely before removing from pan.
