Tasty Tuesday: Crispy Cacao Cookies

Everyone likes cookies. Some people even love them 🙂 . But crispy cacao cookies are without any doubt loved by everyone. Make them and come back here and tell me that you love them too. Because you wouldn’t be able to disagree 🙂 .

These are some of the best cacao cookies I’ve ever made.

I have a friend who can’t get enough of them. Each time we meet she asks me to bring her a batch of the cacao cookies. My kids happily help me make 2 batches because they know one will be for them.

I can’t pinpoint exactly why these cacao cookies taste so good. The crispness? The chocolate-y taste? The sweetness? Or maybe a mixture of all three?

I hope you’ll give them a chance and make them for your family. You definitely won’t regret!

These are the most amazing cookies I've ever eaten. Crispy, chocolate-y, and mildly sweet. Make today these cacao cookies! You will be VERY happy you did!


Tasty Tuesday: Crispy Cacao Cookies
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 45
Crispy Cacao Cookies
  • ½ cup almond butter (any nut butter works)
  • 2 eggs
  • ⅓ cup maple syrup
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup slow cooking oats
  • 1 cup almond meal or flour
  • ¾ cup coconut palm sugar
  • 4 tablespoons cacao
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  1. Beat the eggs in a bowl. Add, one by one, almond butter, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients in another bowl (oats, almond meal, coconut palm sugar, cacao, baking soda, baking powder, and salt).
  3. Pour the wet ingredients slowly over the dry ingredients and mix well.
  4. Preheat the oven at 350 F and line 3 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  5. Make little balls (approximately the size of two walnuts) with your fingers. They do not have to be perfect as the dough is sticky. Put 3 balls in each row on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. The cookies will spread when they bake. If you put more than 3 balls per row, they cookies will stick together when they bake. Make 5 rows (with 3 balls per raw) per cookie sheet.
  6. Bake at 350F for 15 minutes. Remove the cookie sheets from the oven. The cookies should not be crispy yet. They should be soft to the touch.
  7. Leave the cookies on the sheet for 5 minutes, then use a spatula to lift them from the parchment paper, but do not take them off the cookie sheet yet.
  8. Transfer them to a plate when they are cold and crispy.
  9. Store the cookies in an air-tight tight container in the fridge for up to one week (if they can last that long 🙂 ).
Do you know anyone who does not like cookies?

    Just baked the cookies today – I can only say they are so yummy and my whole family ( including grandparents and even my husband – he is not a sweet tooth likes them) loved them. I definitely make them again 🙂
