These thick and chunky cookies are bursting with butterscotch chips, dark chocolate, walnuts, and flaky sea salt. They're soft and chewy on the inside and crispy on the outside. In other words, they have it all! If you're a fan of loaded cookies, these butterscotch chocolate chip cookies are for you!
Butterscotch Walnut Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies
I love a good traditional chocolate chip cookie, don't get me wrong. But these butterscotch chocolate chip cookies take it to the next level. They have that chewy buttery cookie taste but is exploding with all the mix-ins like chopped walnuts, dark chocolate morsels, butterscotch chips, and flakey sea salt.
These cookies are made thick and chunky, like a bakery-style cookie. You'll get a healthy dose of cookie with all the mix-ins in every bite!
How to make these cookies
These cookies are a breeze to whip up. There is no chilling time and they can be made in one bowl!
First things first, beat all the wet ingredients together. This includes the almond butter, egg, coconut oil, vanilla. Then add the coconut sugar and beat until the sugar is dissolved into the mix.
Next fold in the dry ingredients - this is the almond flour and the baking soda. Mix until no flour clumps remain.
Once the flour is mixed, fold in the butterscotch chips, dark chocolate morsels, and walnuts. Use a rubber spatula to fold these mix-ins into the batter.
Finally, use a large cookie scoop to scoop the dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. I recommend a large cookie scoop to really lean into the "bakery-style" cookie look. Make sure to leave a couple of inches in between each cookie scoop to allow room to spread. Once baked, sprinkle with a little sea salt and cool.
Butterscotch Chocolate Chip Cookie Tips
- You can use any nut butter you'd like in this recipe. However, be sure it's a creamy-style nut butter and not chunky.
- Use a larger cookie scoop. These cookies are quite chunky and thick (my kinda cookie!). Use a big cookie scoop to really get that bakery-style cookie effect.
- If you're not into butterscotch, try these salted caramel chips for a little twist!
- Don't over bake these cookies. Even though they are big cookies, they don't take too long to bake in the oven. Once the edges begin to get crispy, they're done. Remember, they will continue to bake a little once they're out of the oven!
