Soft Baked Chocolate Chunk Cottage Cheese Cookies (with almond flour)

Cottage cheese cookies are soft baked and have delicious gooey centers. They’re made with almond flour and loaded with melty chocolate chips.

Prep: 10 minCook: 12 minTotal: 22 min
Servings: 10 large cookies 1x


  • 1/2 cup 4% milk small curd cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 8 oz. semi-sweet chocolate bar, chopped
  • flakey salt for sprinkling


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Place the cottage cheese, coconut sugar, egg and vanilla in a food processor. You can also use a handheld electric mixer but it’s important to blend these ingredients really well to break down the cottage cheese curds.
  3. Add the almond flour, baking soda, and salt to the food processor. Blend until combined.
  4. Add the chocolate chunks, saving some to press into the tops of the cookies, and pulse a couple times to incorporate.
  5. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and use a large cookie scooper to form six cookie dough balls on the pan. Press a few chunks into the tops of each cookie dough ball.
  6. Bake for 12 minutes.
  7. Allow the cookies to set on the pan for about 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  8. Repeat until the cookie dough is used up and all the cookies have been baked.
  9. Sprinkle the tops with flakey salt (if desired) and enjoy!
