Vegan Pret Chocolate and Almond Cookies

Updated: Feb 7, 2022

Rich chocolate cookies with crunchy hazelnuts and dark chocolate chunks.

I love this recipe way too much to not share it.*

These cookies are one of the reasons I started baking more vegan treats. I tried them for the first time in April 2020 during the first lockdown and oh my, they are just incredible.

Moist, chunky with a bit of a crunch, what more could you want from a cookie?

They are one of my most requested bakes from friends and family, so I end up baking them on a regular basis.

Things You'll Need to Bake Pret Cookies

  • 3 large baking sheets

  • Reusable baking mats or baking paper

  • A small ice cream scoop (optional)

Baking Tips

  • When baked, if the edges of cookie feel firm but centre is still soft, they should be ready to take out.

  • If using whole almonds, cut them up into smaller pieces.

  • Chop up a bar of chocolate for extra large chunks, rather than using chocolate chips.


Prep Time

Bake Time


25 minutes

8-10 minutes

About 25 small cookies


Ingredients 43g caster sugar 112g light brown sugar 4g salt 40g flaked almonds 112g dark chocolate pieces 205g plain flour (sifted) 20g cocoa powder (sifted) 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda 65g coconut oil 72g almond butter 100g golden syrup 40g water


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

  2. Pour the caster sugar, soft light brown sugar, flour, almond pieces, salt and chocolate pieces into a large bowl.

  3. In a separate bowl, mix the almond butter, oil, water and golden syrup together and then add to the dry ingredients.

  4. Mix together with a wooden spoon and then bring the dough together using your hands.

  5. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. Split the dough using an ice cream scoop into balls and flatten slightly with the palm of your hand.

  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes (This will vary depending on thickness – if the edges of cookie feel firm but centre is still soft, it should be ready to take out).

  7. Leave to cool for 15 minutes. Enjoy!
