COOK TIME:8 mins

TOTAL TIME:18 mins



  • 1 cup whole wheat white flour
  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour*
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, softened
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract (optional)
  • 2/3 cup almonds, chopped
  • 1 3.5oz bar dark chocolate, chopped (I used this)
  • coarse sea salt for sprinkling


  • Preheat oven to 350F, line two large baking sheets with parchment paper, set aside.
  • In a medium bowl add both flours, baking soda, and salt. Whisk together until combined, set aside.
  • In a large bowl using hand mixer or paddle attachment of stand mixer, cream together butter, coconut oil, and sugars, until light and fluffy, about 1-2 minutes. Add in egg, vanilla extract, and almond extract until combined.
  • Add in dry ingredients slowly, on low-medium speed until dough comes together. Using large wooden spoon, stir in chopped almonds and dark chocolate chunks.
  • Using large cookie scoop (or rounded tablespoon) scoop dough balls and place on prepared cookie sheets, leaving about 3-4 inches of room between. –I like to space my cookie dough in alternating rows of 2 and 3, to make sure there is enough room for the cookies to spread a little.
  • Sprinkle cookie dough with coarse sea salt and bake for 8-10 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 1 minute before transferring to wire rack to cool completely, adding more salt if you wish.–To keep cookies chewy, don’t bake longer than 10 minutes. Even if they look a little underdone, they will set upon cooling. If you prefer a crispier cookie, bake an extra 1-2 minutes.
