Donna Hay Choc chip hazelnut cookies

There were no hazelnuts in my pantry to make into meal so I’ve made this recipe with almond meal I ground in a coffee grinder.

I found this recipe in my Sunday paper today and thought I’d give it a go as I needed to make biscuits/cookies for the coming week.

Donna Hay Choc chip hazelnut cookies

Cook Time 12 minutes
Total Time 12 minutes
Course Snacks & Sweets
Servings 32 Biscuits


  • 1 3/4 cup Hazelnut meal
  • 1/4 cup Corn flour
  • 1/2 cup Caster sugar
  • 1/3 cup Brown sugar
  • 1 teas Baking Powder
  • 100 grams Unsalted butter -Melted
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 teas Vanilla essence
  • 150 grams Dark choc chopped


  • In a bowl mix hazelnut meal, cornflour, sugars and baking powder.
  • In a small bowl beat egg and vanilla. Melt butter.
  • Add melted butter and egg to the dry ingredients, mix well.
  • Roll into balls on a lined baking tray (these will spread leave room between)
  • Bake in a 160*C preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly on trays before transferring to a wire rack to cool.


I used almond meal instead of hazelnut meal.
I used margarine instead of butter.
I used 1/4 cup of oat flour as well as the meal as I found that there was no way I could roll these into a ball and even with the extra flour I had to use 2 teaspoons to make mounds.
Don't get me wrong these made a really nice biscuit and I'd make again but I'd use the extra flour. A very small egg may make a difference as no egg size was specified,  I generally use extra large eggs.
