Raspberry Brownie Cookies - Gluten Free, Paleo Recipe | MarlaMeridith.com Brownies & cookies. The ultimate combination.

A guilt-free Paleo brownie cookie combo ~ irresistible. Just so you know I have eaten about 20 of these cookies in the past week. That means 2 batches have been baked & I have only shared like 4 Raspberry Brownie Cookies.

My hubs & kids can vouch for that. Just ask them. They begged. I handed over four….

These are so delish & I will give you full license to enjoy them any time of the day. Breakfast, snacks, tucked inside lunch boxes. All good.

Brownie cookies are just as I tell ya. Part cookie, part brownie. Well what does that mean, you might ask?

It means slightly crispy on the edges and soft like a brownie in the center.

They are basically brownies shaped like cookies.

Cookies bursting with chocolate & raspberry flavors ~ always a winning combo if you ask me.

Naturally sweetened with pure maple syrup. Almond flour keeps ’em grain free & gluten free too.

Apparently I also added some coconut whipped cream & made a brownie cookie sandwich…

It’s all good…enjoy!

Raspberry Brownie Cookies | Paleo


  • 1 1/2 cups (200 g) Blanched Almond Flour
  • 1/4 cup (25 g) Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine Sea Salt
  • 1/2 (60 g) cup Roasted, Unsalted Pecans, chopped
  • 1/2 cup (60 ml) Pure Maple Syrup (I prefer darker Grade B)
  • 2 large Eggs, whisked
  • 1/4 cup (54 g) Melted Coconut OIl
  • 1 teaspoon pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup (140 g) frozen Raspberries
  • Cooking Spray
  • Optional
  • Coconut Whipped Cream


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F with the rack in the middle. Spray & line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Whisk together dry ingredients in a large bowl. Combine wet ingredients in another bowl. Stir together wet & dry to form a batter, gently folding in the raspberries last.
  • Bake for about 25 minutes or until the cookies are done in the center (start checking at 22 minutes). Let them cool for a bit on the baking sheet & then transfer to a cooling rack.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Re-heat as needed or enjoy at any temperature.
  • Notes
  • I like to use frozen raspberries for this recipe so I can easily fold them into the thick batter without them breaking up too much.

  1. This is SO creative! Do I remember reading in a recent post from like 2 weeks ago you had never shared a brownie recipe on your site? Well you’re making up for lost time. These are stunners! I made brownie cookies about 4-6 mos ago and they were a pain and I used conventional ingredients so I give you mad props for making this Paleo, GF, etc!

    • Ha! Now that I have broken the seal brownies in all kinds of ways will probably show up round here pretty often. I did need to test them a few times…here at altitude it is a beast to bake!

  2. These are so cute! I love that you used coconut whipped cream and made sandwiches! I love anything with some coconut whipped cream! These are the perfect late summer cookie!

  3. Marla, these look absolutely scrumptious. What a brilliant idea. I have always loved the raspberry/chocolate combo and in a brownie/cookie form and paleo…i’m sold! I have all these ingredients on hand. BTW, thanks for including the link to my cookie recipe at the bottom of the page…so flattered :)

  4. Hey everyone,
    So i don’t know if anyone had any issues with making those but I did.I couldn’t find almond flour so I used cocoanut flour. But I don’t think that should make to much of a difference. They didn’t end up being cookies they just feel apart and was a crumbled mess :-(

    • I’m thinking that would make a difference as I have tested these a handful of times ~ always with the same ingredients and the same results. Almond flour is way different than any other kind of flour. What did you use?

  5. […] Cookies and Crackers: Pick up a box of your favorite gluten-free nibbles, whether they are cookies, crackers, or something else. Or if you’re feeling ambitious, make your own! Here’s a recipe for sesame crackers from Elana’s Pantry and cheese crackers from King Arthur Flour. Likewise, try Alton Brown’s chewy gluten-free cookie recipe or these paleo raspberry brownie cookies. […]

  6. Has anyone ever used almond meal instead of the almond flour? We are out of the flour and live 2 hours from the closest place that carries it, decided to make these for a party tonight.

  7. These are yummy! I only had almond meal, not almond flour and was concerned that it was not fine enough so I used half almond meal and half whole wheat flour (I am not concerned about gluten) and these turned out great. I also added some chocolate chips and used fresh raspberries. Since the cookies are dark having the raspberries break up and spread throughout the dough was not a big deal to me, it just spreads the awesome raspberry flavor through the cookies!

    • Love your adaptations to these cookies! I’m not GF either ~ so I might just give that a whirl with the 2 flours. Thanks for letting us know about your yummy success!
