Here’s another version of my easy cookies made with spread. This time I used the cocoa almond butter I bought from Trader Joe’s.

It’s basically chocolate flavored almond butter. I love almonds and I love chocolate, so I really enjoy this spread.

I sprinkled some chopped almonds into the batter to give them an extra kick of almond and add some crunchy texture. These cookies spread quite a bit, but they still tasty chewy and delicious.

4 Ingredient Chewy Chocolate Almond Butter Cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
These chocolate cookies are made with chocolate almond spread and are studded with almonds.


  • 1 cup cocoa almond butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds or almond slivers optional


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat mats. Mix almond butter, sugar, flour, and egg in a bowl until smooth dough batter forms. Stir in almonds if using.
  • Take 2 tablespoons of dough and combine into a smooth ball. Place on cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining dough, spacing balls about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes. Let cookies cool on cookie sheet before removing. (Note: cookies do spread a lot but they should still remain cookies. If for some reason yours are coming out completely flat, you can try refrigerating the dough for 30 minutes before baking. I did not refrigerate the dough and just baked as is.)

  1. Would it be okay to substitude this spread with nutella? Does the cocoa almond spread have a thicker texture compared to nutella? Unfortunately they don’t sell anything of that sort over here… These look delicious btw!
