Whole Wheat Chocolate Almond Cookies

A super delicious and healthy whole wheat double chocolate cookies with crunchy almonds. These whole wheat chocolate almond cookies are eggless and irresistibly tasty too.

When I saw these super delicious cookies at Shruti’s Instagram I saved it in an instant to make for this year’s bake a thon. I followed her recipe except for used whole wheat flour instead of APF and raw cacao instead of cocoa powder. My cookies did not turn out as beautiful as hers but they sure do taste amazing.

Every time I try to bake an eggless cookie they don’t spread as much as the ones with egg. This one would have spread as in the original recipe had I followed it to the T. But as I wanted to bake a little bit healthy version of the cookies I used Whole Wheat Flour.
