  • 65 g softened unsalted butter
  • 65 g golden caster sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • ΒΌ tsp almond extract
  • 75 g oat flour
  • 50 g ground almonds
  • 20 g cocoa powder check it's gluten free, as not all brands are
  • 50 g desiccated coconut
  • 2 tbsp Nutella


  • Cream the butter and sugar in a large bowl until well mixed. Add in the egg and almond extract and stir to combine. Add in the oat flour, ground almonds and cocoa powder and mix with a wooden spoon. Cover the bowl in clingfilm and refrigerate for 90-120 minutes.
  • Pre-heat your oven to 170c and line two baking trays with silicone baking mats or baking parchment. Put to one side. Pour out the desiccated coconut onto a plate.
  • Take the cookie dough out of the fridge and scoop out a heaped tsp (approx. 25g). Roll into a ball, then flatten it just a little with your hands. Roll the cookie ball in the coconut so it's nicely covered. Place onto the baking tray and repeat until you use up all of the cookie dough. You should get approx. 10 cookies altogether. Place in the oven for 10 minutes.
  • Take out of the oven and leave to cool on the baking tray for 10 minutes before moving to a cooling rack to cool further. Drizzle or pipe on the Nutella whilst the cookies are still a little warm. You may need to warm the Nutella in the microwave for a few seconds to get it soft enough to drizzle.


These cookies are best eaten on the same day or the following day so long as they're wrapped and placed in a sealed container.
