Chocolate Chip Hazelnut Cardamom Cookies

This post is sponsored by Bob’s Red Mill. All opinions are my own.

These cookies are everything I love in a treat. Not too sweet, perfectly spiced, and the nutty flavor from the hazelnut flour ties everything together. I’ve loved the texture I’ve gotten in the past working with almond flour but in the spirit of keeping my ingredients local I was happy to learn that the hazelnut flour that my friends at Bob’s Red Mill source is from my neck of the woods. Major win! These cookies are sweetened with honey and the addition of dark chocolate chips and a pinch of cardamom make them my favorite cookie of the moment. They’re perfect with a cup of coffee in the morning or as a quick treat after lunch at the farm. Because the hazelnut flour has more oil than traditional flours you don’t need to use as much fat in the recipe. Just two tablespoons of butter is all these cookies call for. I hope you all enjoy these cookies as much as we do.

Pour a cup of coffee or a giant glass of milk, grab a cookie and dig in!

    Looks delicious. I have some of Bob’s almond flour at home. Should I add extra fat if I want to make this substitution?

    Loved them!! Thanks for a great recipe 🙂

    These were wonderful and very surprising as i’ve never baked with hazelnut flour before. Will the substitution to regular flour or almond work as well?

  4. Yvonne says:

    I made my own hazelnut flour by blending hazelnuts in my foodprocessor and then sieving out the bigger pieces of nuts because I thought it had to be flour and not hazelnut meal. My cookies were already browned after about 8 minutes and, also after cooling, they are so soft that you almost can’t pick them up! But they taste very good. Was it a mistake to sieve the ground hazelnuts? Also, although I made small cookies, I still ended with less than 14.
    I want to make them again, but I want to make them how you intend the cookies to be. Hope you can help me.
