A deliciously easy choc-dipped gluten-free pecan cookie.


  • 50 grams (1/2 cup) almond meal
  • 140 grams (1 cup) gluten-free plain flour
  • 45 grams (1/4 cup) brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 55 grams (1/2 cup) pecans, chopped
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 150 grams (1 cup) good quality dark chocolate


  1. Preheat oven to 180 C (360 F). Line two cookie trays with baking paper.
  2. In a large bowl, add almond meal, flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and pecans and gently mix. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients.
  3. Add the eggs, coconut oil and milk to the dry ingredients. Use an electric mixer, or wooden spoon to combine until a soft cookie dough forms. Gently roll the cookie dough into balls, then gently flatten them using the palm of your hand to form a round disc. Place on cookie tray. Repeat with remaining cookie dough.
  4. Place cookies in the oven for approximately 10 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. Break chocolate into pieces and place in a heatproof bowl. Heat chocolate in the microwave, stirring every 20 seconds, until just melted. Gently dip each cookie in the chocolate, then return to the wire rack to set.
