It’s really hard not to like fudgy things. Desserts are always a favorite in our house, and making these fudgy crinkle cookies was an awesome surprise.

I didn’t know how a cookie without dairy would fare. I hoped it would work out, but sometimes you just don’t know.

These ended up awesome though! And they’re incredible. No white sugar, no dairy, but some ridiculously amazing cookies.

How to make these fudgy crinkle cookies

First you start by combining your dry ingredients – almond flour, coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, xanthan gum and salt.

Combine them until they’re well incorporated. You can do this with a spatula, or the whisk attachment on your stand mixer or hand blender. The idea is to make sure everything is evenly mixed so your cookies come out consistently.

You can sprinkle in your sweetener of choice. I used Truvia Natural Sweetener for these cookies, but use whatever serves you best. Swerve is my other favorite alternative for baked goods. You won’t need to stir this in.

Then add in your wet ingredients – vanilla extract, eggs, avocado oil.

Next, chill your dough for about 30 minutes, and up to an hour. You want them to be nice and cold when you press them.

Once the dough is chilled properly, spread out some extra granulated sweetener onto your baking sheet. For easy cleanup, line it with a Silpat mat, or parchment paper.

With an ice cream scoop or dough scoop, scoop your dough and roll it into balls. I like using a scoop for this because it gets each dough ball roughly the same size. Consistency is key for cookies!

Roll your dough balls around in the granulated sweetener.

Then, with a glass, or your hand, smush the dough balls down until they’re flat, and about a half-inch thick. This is how you get that perfect fudgy crinkle cooke!

Bake at 350 for 10 minutes, cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar, and enjoy!

I really love this fudgy crinkle cookies recipe because the cookies are a little imperfect, and I really like that part about home baking.

The taste is so delicious, though. As always, I ran them by my taste tester, Bryan. He loved how rich they were and liked the sweetener choice.

He couldn’t tell that these didn’t have dairy in them, and really liked the chocolatey taste.
