Ground Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ground Almond Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwich

I have started making my own almond milk, in the last month. I drink an almond milk smoothie on weekday mornings with ground flax, ground almonds, vanilla extract, and frozen berries. It is so quick and easy to make, and since I cut out caffeine, it makes me feel great. It gives me the energy to start my day, besides the fact, it is delicious. Angela from Cottage Magpie‘s husband, Mr. Magpie shared his delicious recipe for almond milk with me about a month ago, and I have been making it ever since. I have four weeks of ground almonds in my freezer, and most days, I can hear them calling out to me, “bake with me, cook with me, put me in a smoothie”, so I happily oblige.

Ground Almond Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

These cookies are made with ground almonds, instead of traditional wheat flour.

When I was younger, I used to love eating the occasional Chipwich. I have not had them in years, but still remember the best part of eating this treat, was when the cookie thawed a bit and became soft. As you took a bite, the cookie and ice cream melted together in your mouth. This cookie is like that. It is not a traditional chocolate chip cookie in the sense that there are no eggs and no wheat flour, but it is every bit as delicious. It tastes yummy without ice cream, but when you pair this cookie with ice cream, it is scrumptious.

If you are going to make ice cream sandwiches with them, pop them in the freezer for about a half an hour so they are not as soft. Then place a generous scoop of your favorite flavor ice cream, in the middle of a turned over cookie, place another turned over cookie on top of the ice cream. Then press the cookies together gently, snugly sandwiching the ice cream. Enjoy them right away, or wrap your ice cream sandwiches tightly in plastic wrap and place in the freezer.

This recipe is inspired by Purely Twins, Almond Meal Chip Cookies. If you would like to make these cookies dairy free, chop up a  non dairy, extra dark chocolate bar, instead of semi sweet chocolate chips. I hope you enjoy these cookies with or without ice cream.

  1. Oh. My. Goodness. Those look SO GOOD. Mr. Magpie was just saying today how much he wanted some chocolate chip cookies! We may just have to make these TONIGHT. Except with hazelnuts because we are out of almonds at the moment. I’m sure they’ll still be good, though. Ooooh, I can’t wait!!!

    And thanks for mentioning us, by the way, that’s so sweet! I promise I’ll put the almond milk recipe up soon so that everyone can have it!

    These are on the list to try, too.
    Do you find that it is more expensive to make your own almond milk? I keep wanting to try it, but Dan keeps saying the cost isn’t worth it… What are your thoughts?

      Hi Ellie, I find it is less expensive, and healthier to make my own almond milk. I do not put all the extra stuff in it, because I am making it for my smoothies in the morning. It is super duper easy if you have a great blender, and a tea towel, and fine mesh sieve, to strain the almond milk through. I think you should give it a try. Let me know how you like it. I think it would be delicious with some dates blended into it. The dates would add a touch of sweetness, and also make it a little thicker, and creamier, and more like store bought. Start with one date and taste, then add more if needed. I would love to hear how you like it. As always, thank you for reading my blog and taking the time to post a comment.
