Fudgy Crinkle Cookies

  • Author: Mila Clarke Buckley
  • Total Time: 45 minutes

No dairy or white sugar in these fudgy crinkle cookies! It’s an easy recipe that takes a few minutes to come together, and finishes with a rich, soft, chocolatey cookie.


Units Scale



  1. Preheat your oven to 350F degrees.
  2. First you start by combining your dry ingredients – almond flour, coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, xanthan gum and salt.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Then add in your wet ingredients – vanilla extract, eggs, avocado oil. Beat until the dough fully comes together.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. Roll your dough balls around in the granulated sweetener.
  10. Then, with a glass, or your hand, smush the dough balls down until they’re flat, and about a half inch thick.

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

  • These are definitely a soft and chewy cookie. I hope you enjoy!
