Healthy Mexican Hot Chocolate Chunk Cookies (Grain Free, Gluten Free, Refined Sugar Free)

dairy freedessertgluten freegrain freerefined sugar free

Y’all, I clearly have a Mexican hot chocolate problem. I use it in brownies, in mousse, in popsicles…and, of course, that’s not even counting the classic.

But, alas, it wasn’t enough. I wanted something more round, more snackable, more cookie-like—so I invented these. Imagine the world’s better double chocolate chunk cookie you’ve ever had. Then, add a hint of cinnamon and spice to that cookie, which will make the chocolate even more addictive. Then, make that cookie fully gluten free, grain free, refined sugar free, all while retaining its perfectly crispy edges and chewy center.

Lest you’re confused about where this is going, this is what you’d end up with. This here lil’ cookie.

Healthy Mexican Hot Chocolate Chunk Cookies (Grain Free, Refined Sugar Free)

Best of all, these mexican hot chocolate cookies take like 10 minutes to make, ideal for those lazy nights (ie all nights) when you just want chocolate, like, yesterday.

Make ’em and then show me your pics on Instagram (@lizmoody). I’d say I’m sorry for stoking your new addiction, but, well, I’m not. Enjoy!

    Ok, this recipe makes legit delicious cookies. My husband scoffs and says he won’t eat them because they don’t have “real sugar” and I’m like secretly delighted inside that I don’t have to share. I highly recommend a cookie scoop to form these and other of Liz’s delicious cookies, as the almond butter is super sticky and I otherwise just end up with dough all over my hands. I love both the texture and the flavor of these treats. I will definitely be making these again and again. I may try amping up the cayenne a bit next time, but this is really a pretty perfect treat. It will be tough limiting myself to one at a time!

    1. Liz Moody says:

      Hi April, I’m so glad you like them!! And I bet your husband would be surprised at how much he’d like them too 🙂 Great tip on the cookie scoop! xo, Liz

      Couldn’t agree more! Glad you loved it.

    These cookies were SO GOOD! I used dark cacao powder since it’s all I had on hand and they were still wonderful. Plus, no one could guess I made them with almond flour.

  4. Katie says:

    Yummm! These cookies are delish. I also subbed with a flax egg as well as creamy peanut butter (unsweetened and unsalted) instead of almond butter, and they turned out perfect! Not too sweet, a little hint of spice, and a nice crunch from the walnuts. Highly recommend! 🙂

    These cookies turned out amazing! I am allergic to eggs so I subbed with one flax egg and they turned out perfect ??
