Hazelnut Brownie Cookies


  • 80g of Solid Coconut Oil
  • 140g of Coconut Sugar
  • 100g of Cashew Butter*
  • 45g of Cacao Powder
  • 100g of Oat or Buckwheat Flour
  • Pinch of Sea Salt

To Decorate:

  • 35g of Hazelnuts
  • 50g of Dark Chocolate

*You can use other nut butters but something really smooth like cashew works best!

These are crazy delicious. They’re like a hazelnut brownie cookie hybrid (hence the name) and they’re just so good they’re hard to describe. It’s really important that you don’t touch them until they’ve cooled and set- they’ll end up with the best texture so it’s really worth it, I promise!

Preheat the oven to 180’C.

Add the coconut oil, coconut sugar and cashew butter to your food processor and blend on high until it comes together.

Add in the cacao powder, buckwheat flour and a pinch of sea salt and blend well until it comes together into a dough.

Take about a tenth of the cookie mixture and roll it into a ball. Then shape it into a cookie shape on a lined baking sheet. Repeat with all the cookies. Pop them in the oven to bake for about 10 minutes.

At the same time, on another tray, roast the hazelnuts until golden, about 8 minutes.

Take them both out and leave the cookies to cool on the tray for about 20 minutes before touching them. This is really important as they will fall apart if not left long enough.

Melt the chocolate and finely chop the roasted hazelnuts. Drizzle the chocolate over them and sprinkle on the chopped hazelnuts.

    Hi, I’ve been looking for a reasonably healthy cookie recipe and this seems perfect, I’m not gluten intolerant so usually use regular flour, would it be the same quantity of plain flour?

    This is such a devine receipe although I dont know what Ive done as they are still ready to crumble even leaving them for far more than 20 minutes. Could i do this by melting coconut oil first? I feel I had to many lumps of coconut oil. They smell devine just cant eat them 🙁

    • Indy Power says:

      Hi Grainne, the coconut oil needs to be solid rather than melted or they spread out too much. If it’s blended well in the food processor there shouldn’t be any lumps so I’d suggest blending more next time x

    Sounds Devine. Can’t wait to try with children. How long do they last in storage?

    I’ve just blended up all the ingredients and it’s more liquidy than doughy. Does the mix need to be refrigerated to harden it up so it can be rolled into balls? Not sure what I did wrong 🙈
