I think it’s safe to say I’ve eaten at least 10 of these cookies in the past few days. These Double Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies are so dang good, I just couldn’t STOP myself. I think I may have eaten even more of these than I did the last time I had a batch of my all-time-favorite Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies in front of me.
The second batch of them that I tested was cookie perfection. Perfectly soft and gooey, with melty chocolate, crunchy hazelnuts, and a rich, deep chocolate flavor. I ate one fresh from the oven and was the happiest little clam ever.
Then, I left these Double Chocolate Hazelnut Cookies out alllll day long, and forgot to cover them or put them away before I went to bed. The next morning I took a little piece and expected it to be a little dry and not as good. NOPE – they were still just as soft and tender and delicious as when they came out of the oven.
I brought these cookies to my dads, where we devoured them throughout the weekend. They stayed just as moist and decadent as when they came out of the oven. Pretty much magic, right?
These are a MUST-MAKE for any Chocolate Hazelnut fans!
These cookies are almost brownie-like in how chocolatey and fudgy they are. Because they use hazelnut flour in addition to almond flour, they have a sweet, nutty hazelnut flavor.
My hazelnut flour (and almond flour) is from Bob’s Red Mill, which you guys all know makes all my favorite flours. They’re always high quality and if Bob’s makes it, it’s probably my go-to.
The mix of gooey, melty dark chocolate chunks and crunchy hazelnuts is the most satisfying mix of textures, especially with how soft and fudgy the cookie is. If you’re a chocoholic, these are a MUST try! Enjoy :)

- ½ cup coconut oil, solid at room temperature, similar to softened butter
- ¾ cup coconut sugar
- 1 egg, room temperature, OR 1 flax egg, 1 tablespoon flax meal whisked with 2½ tablespoons water, let stand for 5 minutes to gel before using*
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- ¾ cup (72g) Bob’s Red Mill blanched almond flour
- ¾ cup (84g) Bob’s Red Mill hazelnut flour
- ½ cup (3 oz, 85g) dark chocolate, chopped
- ½ cup toasted hazelnuts, roughly chopped
- Flaky sea salt, to sprinkle on top, optional
- Beat together the coconut oil and coconut sugar until smooth. Add the egg or flax egg and vanilla and mix until smooth.
- Add the cocoa powder, almond flour, hazelnut flour, salt, and baking soda to the wet ingredients. Mix until well incorporated. Fold in the chopped chocolate and hazelnuts.
- Use a cookie scoop to form cookies and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet; press down slightly. Place in the refrigerator for an hour if you want thicker cookies (I did this), otherwise, you can bake right away.
- When you’re ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350ºF.
- Before baking, sprinkle with flaky sea salt if desired. Bake for 10 minutes or just set.
- Store in an airtight container for up to a week.
If you don’t have hazelnut flour, you can use all almond flour instead.
