Raspberry Brownie Cookies - Gluten Free, Paleo Recipe | FamilyFreshCooking.com Brownies & cookies. The ultimate combination.

A guilt-free Paleo brownie cookie combo ~ irresistible. Just so you know I have eaten about 20 of these cookies in the past week. That means 2 batches have been baked & I have only shared like 4 Raspberry Brownie Cookies.

My hubs & kids can vouch for that. Just ask them. They begged. I handed over four….

These are so delish & I will give you full license to enjoy them any time of the day. Breakfast, snacks, tucked inside lunch boxes. All good.

Brownie cookies are just as I tell ya. Part cookie, part brownie. Well what does that mean, you might ask?

It means slightly crispy on the edges and soft like a brownie in the center.

They are basically brownies shaped like cookies.

Cookies bursting with chocolate & raspberry flavors ~ always a winning combo if you ask me.

Naturally sweetened with pure maple syrup. Almond flour keeps ‘em grain free & gluten free too.

Apparently I also added some coconut whipped cream & made a brownie cookie sandwich…

It’s all good…enjoy!

Yield: 12 Brownie Cookies

Raspberry Brownie Cookies | Paleo

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups (200 g) Blanched Almond Flour
  • 1/4 cup (25 g) Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine Sea Salt
  • 1/2 (60 g) cup Roasted, Unsalted Pecans, chopped
  • 1/2 cup (60 ml) Pure Maple Syrup (I prefer darker Grade B)
  • 2 large Eggs, whisked
  • 1/4 cup (54 g) Melted Coconut OIl
  • 1 teaspoon pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup (140 g) frozen Raspberries
  • Cooking Spray
  • Optional
  • Coconut Whipped Cream

Method

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F with the rack in the middle. Spray & line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Whisk together dry ingredients in a large bowl. Combine wet ingredients in another bowl. Stir together wet & dry to form a batter, gently folding in the raspberries last.
  • Bake for about 25 minutes or until the cookies are done in the center (start checking at 22 minutes). Let them cool for a bit on the baking sheet & then transfer to a cooling rack.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Re-heat as needed or enjoy at any temperature.
  • Notes
  • I like to use frozen raspberries for this recipe so I can easily fold them into the thick batter without them breaking up too much.

This is SO creative! Do I remember reading in a recent post from like 2 weeks ago you had never shared a brownie recipe on your site? Well you’re making up for lost time. These are stunners! I made brownie cookies about 4-6 mos ago and they were a pain and I used conventional ingredients so I give you mad props for making this Paleo, GF, etc!

Ha! Now that I have broken the seal brownies in all kinds of ways will probably show up round here pretty often. I did need to test them a few times…here at altitude it is a beast to bake!

Thanks Tieghan! Slapping that whipped cream on these makes ‘em extra special. Then again whipped cream does that to everything ;)

I Loved this recipe
Looks extremely delicious and healthy.. I think I will use canola oil instead as am not a big fan of coconut oil

Hey everyone,
So i don’t know if anyone had any issues with making those but I did.I couldn’t find almond flour so I used cocoanut flour. But I don’t think that should make to much of a difference. They didn’t end up being cookies they just feel apart and was a crumbled mess :-(

36 Marla September 5, 2013 at 4:20 pm

I’m thinking that would make a difference as I have tested these a handful of times ~ always with the same ingredients and the same results. Almond flour is way different than any other kind of flour. What did you use?

37 Erica January 29, 2014 at 12:29 pm

We just made these cookies and they were a huge hit. Thanks for the delicious recipe.

Awesome! I’m so glad to hear that :)

Has anyone ever used almond meal instead of the almond flour? We are out of the flour and live 2 hours from the closest place that carries it, decided to make these for a party tonight.

40 Renee May 10, 2014 at 6:22 pm

Is there anyway to substitute the eggs in this recipe?

Wow this looks absolutely amazing. I love the raspberry twist to a cookie, refreshing and delicious.

Thanks Kristin!

These are yummy! I only had almond meal, not almond flour and was concerned that it was not fine enough so I used half almond meal and half whole wheat flour (I am not concerned about gluten) and these turned out great. I also added some chocolate chips and used fresh raspberries. Since the cookies are dark having the raspberries break up and spread throughout the dough was not a big deal to me, it just spreads the awesome raspberry flavor through the cookies!

44 Marla July 30, 2014 at 4:51 am

Love your adaptations to these cookies! I’m not GF either ~ so I might just give that a whirl with the 2 flours. Thanks for letting us know about your yummy success!
