Ringing in the cozy time of year with a new exciting spin on a cookie classic. Miso Lemon Pepper Chocolate Chunk Cookies! A cookie of contrasts; salty and sweet, zesty and with a hint of spice right at the end.

Miso and chocolate is a fantastic flavor combination and if you have not tried baking with miso paste before, you HAVE to give it a shot, starting with these delicious cookies.

The miso paste adds depth of flavor and umami, an almost savory quality, and some saltiness to these delicious chocolate chunk cookies. Trust me, they are unlike any other chocolate chunk cookie you have baked beforealmond flour chocolate chunk cookies on a wooden chopping board

This recipe uses my favorite almond flour cookies as a base. A tried and tested recipe that I’ve been remaking into several variations, the chocolate thumbprints, molasses cookies, blueberry muffin cookies, snickers cookies, baklava cookies and more.

For these chocolate cookies, we add huge chocolate chunks to the dough for that extra burst of flavor and we also add some other bold flavor profiles such as miso, lemon zest, and black pepper.

As I said, these cookies are for lovers of big bold flavors. You can omit any of these more unusual add-ins depending on your flavor preference and keep the cookies with just the big chocolate chunks!

Ingredients

Dry ingredients:

  • 1 cup (112 g) almond flour I use super fine blanched almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons tapioca starch
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar or brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper or you can also use cayenne

Wet ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon yellow miso , use chickpea miso for Soyfree
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 3 to 3 1/2 ounces (100 g) of chocolate bar or chocolate chunks

Instructions

  • In a bowl, add all of the dry ingredients and mix really well. Press and mix to break up any almond flour lumps and mix really well.

  • In another small bowl add the maple syrup, coconut oil, vanilla and the miso. Mix the miso by pressing and rubbing it into the mixture really well and make sure it mixes in , then transfer this to the bowl with dry ingredients and mix really well to make a dough.

  • It will be somewhat sticky dough, if it is too sticky you can add in another tablespoon of almond flour.

  • Add 2 1/2 ounces of a chopped chocolate bar to the dough and mix in, then chill for 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Remove the dough from the fridge. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 335 F(170c)

  • Using a scoop, make equal portions of the dough then roll it and flatten it on the parchment lined baking sheet. You want to flatten it pretty well.

  • These cookies spread so keep a lot of distance between them then use the leftover chocolate chunks and press on top of the cookies, distributing them throughout.

  • Then bake the cookies for 12 to 14 minutes, depending on the size of the cookies, baking sheet and temperature of your oven. Once the edges are starting to turn golden, remove from the oven. Let it cool for 3 to 4 minutes on the cookie sheet. Transfer carefully using a spatula to cool completely.

  • For the cookies to look like chocolate puddles of cookies, use a spoon to lightly break the chocolate chunk pieces on top so that they are chocolate puddles while they’re still warm and then serve.

  • Store covered on the counter for upto 3 days and refrigerate for upto 7-10 days

Notes

  • soy-free use chickpea miso.
  • These can be frozen and thawed for storage. Just make sure to cool them completely before popping them in the freezer.
  • If you don’t like lemon with chocolate, use orange zest. Or omit the lemon
  • For regular chocolate chunk cookies, omit the lemon, miso and pepper
