    Cinnamon Cocoa Cookies

    I had plans for a cookie recipe using buckwheat flour, but Susan left me a message asking if I tried adding cocoa to the cinnamon cookie recipe, and I have to admit that I became curious. So I’ve left the buckwheat cookie recipe in draft mode, in favor of posting this cinnamon cocoa cookie.

    I recommend you use the best cocoa you can find (and afford) – good cocoa makes a recipe just a bit better. For a variation, I also added chocolate chips to a few of the cookies. I think shaved chocolate would work well too. I debated about adding more cocoa to the cookies but I didn’t want them to taste too bitter. They probably could stand a bit more cocoa though, if you’re game.

    In any case, these turned out well so I wanted to share them sooner rather than later.

      Just made these cookies! They are delish and very chocolaty! Using only 1/2 a cup of honey wasn’t enough to keep the flour sticking for me so I ended up using a little bit more. This however gave me the leeway to add more cocoa and chocolate chips. I’ll definitely be making this again!

    5. Susan says:

      I had the sticky flour problem too and overcame it by refrigerating the dough before making them into balls and pressing them. Dark chocolate cocoa makes these really rich!

      >From the looks of these, these remind me of chocolate chip cookies. How would you make a simple chocolate chip version of these?

    8. Erica says:

      Amanda – you have two choices: go back to cinnamon cookie recipe and just add chocolate chips, or use this regular almond flour chocolate chip cookie recipe: https://comfybelly.com/2009/01/chocolate-chip-cookies.html

      I have to say that I love your blog more than I can tell you. I have made so many of your recipes and I love them all. These cookies are my obsession. I add 1/2 cup of sunflower seed butter and put them in the freezer instead of cooking them. I can’t tell you how good they are! Thank you again!

      I can’t have almond flour (nuts), can I use buckweat flour or what other flour could I substitute?

    11. Andrea says:

      these are in the oven now! i just bought a bag of honeyville almond flour..i was so excited to bake with it and this seemed like the perfect recipe!

    12. Krista says:

      These are amazing! For some reason, the cinnamon/cocao mix never appealed to me, but your recipes are so wonderful and I was looking for something new so I tried them. So glad I did, they are now my favorite!
