Triple Chocolate-Almond Explosion Cookies

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 12 mins

When published in "Vive Le Vegan" by Dreena Burton, these were called double chocolate, but since there are really three forms of chocolateyness I thought I'd better change the title :-) Otherwise, however, these cookies are pure, perfect decadence... they just beg to be shared with the world! (I highly recommend buying Dreena's book for more of the same experiences!) Note: My picture is of what I made my dad for Fathers' Day. :-) It took about a third of the whole recipe and was like a jumbo brownie-cookie! MMm-mm!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350. Stir together the first first 8 dry ingredients, RESERVING 2 Tbsp of the almond slivers (be sure to sift the cocoa and baking powder/soda!).
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the maple syrup, extracts and oil.
  3. Add the wet mixture to the dry, and stir just until well combined (don't overmix!)
  4. Spoon the batter onto a nonstick or parchment-lined sheet. For each mound, take a few chocolate chips and a few of the remaining almond slivers and press into the top of each cookie, flattening slightly.
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or just until gloden around the edges (any longer may let them dry out). Let cool for 1 minute on the sheet, then transfer to a cooling rack.

MMMMM! These are great! I just had one right out of the oven and wow was it good! I expected to taste the maple syrup, but it wasn't strong. Instead the overall flavor had a nice depth to it. I baked them the full 12 minutes, and might add just a little more time next time. Will save and make again. Thanks for posting!
