Serves: 20
  • 1 C white whole wheat flour
  • ½ C brown sugar
  • ⅓ C sugar (or sugar substitute)
  • ⅓ C unsweetened baking cocoa
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ C butter, softened
  • ¼ C plain yogurt (non-fat or full-fat)
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract (for a boost of almond flavor, use almond extract)
  • ½ C chopped almond toasted
  • 20 whole almonds
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, sugars, baking cocoa, and salt.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, or with an electric mixer, beat butter until creamy. Add yogurt, egg, and vanilla or almond extract. Beat until combined. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and beat until combined.
  4. Roll dough into approximate 1 inch balls. Roll balls in chopped almonds to cover all sides. Arrange about 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheet. Gently press a whole almond into the center.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cookies are set and bottoms are light brown. Allow to cool completely on baking sheet.
