Pret's Chocolate & Almond Butter Cookies

Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 15-17 mins
Serves: 8


  • 45g caster sugar 
  • 110g soft light brown sugar 
  • 40g almond pieces (see tip) 
  • 115g dark chocolate, cut into chunks (or use chocolate chips) 
  • A generous pinch of fine salt 
  • 205g plain flour 
  • 20g cocoa powder 
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda 
  • 70g almond butter 
  • 65g coconut oil (see tip) 
  • 100g golden syrup 
  • 40ml water 


Step 1: Start by heating your oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 6. Place both the sugars, almonds, chocolate and salt into a large bowl, then sieve in the flour, cocoa and bicarbonate of soda before mixing to combine. 

Step 2:  In a separate small bowl, mix the almond butter, coconut oil, golden syrup and water together then add to the large bowl. Use a wooden spoon to mix before bringing the dough together using your hands. 

Step 3:  Divide the cookie dough to make 8 equal balls, and then space out on the prepared baking tray/s. Slightly flatten using the the palm of your hand. 

Step 4:  Bake in the oven for around 15-17 minutes, this will vary depending on thickness – if the edges of the cookies feel firm but centre is still soft, it should be ready to take out. Leave to cool for 15 minutes, then enjoy!
