Yes to cookies, no to dishes: Almond Chocolate Chip “One-Fork One-Bowl” Cookies

Although I have been known to spontaneously gather up a group of friends, a bottle of champagne, and make croissants together on a Monday night (and may have literally done that earlier this week, with awesome results), sometimes I feel lazy. But I want cookies. Enter this recipe: you will use only one bowl and one fork!

These moist, light, almondy cookies are a great place to throw in that bar of chocolate, dried cranberries, coconut, or sliced almonds hiding in your pantry. I used a bar of dark chocolate with sea salt and almonds, and couldn’t be happier.

Almond Chocolate Chip One-Fork One-Bowl Cookies

  • Difficulty: couldn't be easier
  • Print

  • 1/3 cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 bar of chocolate

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Get yourself a mixing bowl and a fork.
  • In the bowl, combine the butter and brown sugar with a fork. Add the vanilla and egg, beating with the fork until lightened in color, no more than a minute.
  • Add the almond flour, flour, baking soda and salt, mixing until incorporated. Break the chocolate bar into chunks with your hands or whack with a rolling pin until the chunks are to your preference. Toss the chocolate in and stir.
  • Roll tablespoon portions of dough into balls, place on a baking sheet, and lightly press with the fork to flatten. Bake for 15 minutes, or until light honey brown. These store and freeze very well, if they last that long!
