Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies


All that's required to make fresh-from-the-oven cookies is five ingredients, a single bowl and 35 minutes. "These cookies are a staple in our house," says Top Chef 's Season 14 champ Brooke Williamson. "The almond butter they call for is loaded with healthy fats and adds protein. My son Hudson is a big fan of them too!" If you use roasted almond butter, your cookies will have a darker hue.

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 cup almond butter

  • ½ cup lightly packed brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ cup chocolate chips

  • ¼ cup chopped honey-roasted peanuts (optional)


  1. Position racks in upper and lower thirds of oven; preheat to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Beat egg in a medium bowl with a hand mixer or in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Add almond butter, brown sugar and baking soda; beat until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips and peanuts (if using).

  3. Using about 1 tablespoon to make each cookie, press the dough into a tight ball. Place on the prepared baking sheets, leaving 1 inch between cookies. Gently press down on each ball with the back of a spoon.

  4. Bake the cookies until cracked on top and golden on the edges, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool on the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
