I made these cookies last night and, holy yum, I can’t stop thinking about them. Ok, maybe it’s because I haven’t eaten anything today and all I can think about is food, but these cookies are definitely something special.
Secret ingredient? Ooh, yes. It definitely adds a little something-something to the recipe. It’s not the bits of Heath Bar though. It’s actually a tiny amount of rum extract. The rum flavor mixed with brown sugar, maple syrup, toffee, and chocolate is absolutely incredible… and, apparently, unforgettable.
The texture of these cookies is soft and chewy with bits of Heath bar mixed throughout. They are seriously amazing. I’m already planning to eat the rest of the batch tomorrow!
- 1.5 cups almond flour/meal
- 1/4 cup melted coconut oil
- 1/4 tsp rum extract
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup Heath Bar bits
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well until batter is blended evenly. Chill batter in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Remove batter from fridge and roll batter into 1-inch balls and place on a greased baking sheet.
- Bake cookies for approximately 13-15 minutes until cookies are lightly browned.
- Remove cookies from baking sheet and allow to cool on wire rack.
- Eat and enjoy!
Makes 18 cookies

OMG! These look amazeballs! I need to make these ASAP. One question: do you think I could use actual rum in this recipe instead of the extract? 🙂
Ha! Sure! 🙂
@Cindy @ Paper Peonies: The substitution ratio of rum extract to rum is generally 2:1 if you’re using dark rum. So you’d be looking at 1/8tsp of dark rum here. You could use 1/4tsp but it will be a bit stronger flavour.
They looks amazing! The combo of almond meal and coconut oil is always a winner when it comes to cookies! I made a vegan chocolate chip batch today for a friends birthday!
Ohhhhhh heath! I love that stuff. These look like a winner!
These look great. I can’t wait to try them!!
OMG I so need to try these!!!
I love me some Heath bits! Yummy and quick!
mmm those look amazing! 😀
I am craving cookies today and these photos are seriously making my mouth water!
Heath bars are my husbands favorite- he will love these!
Holy yum these look so good
Holy Moley!!! These look so delish!
Literally just made me hungry. Now I want to bake!
Oh these look so good! I actually have health pieces but our oven is broken!!
Definately going to try these!
I’m not actually a fan of heath bars but I just had to find out what the secret ingredient was! They do look tasty though!
Haha, I misread them as “health” bar cookies. Then I looked at the ingredients and was like, “since when are Heath Bars healthy? … Oh!”
These do look holy yum!
Oh my gosh those sound and look amazing!
This marks two recipes I’ve pinned from you..today! I don’t usually pin recipes unless they sound amazing…so you’ve won today ! Thanks for sharing!
These look amazing! I want 🙂
Toffee is one of my favorite things. Especially in a cookie. Those look awesome Tina! 🙂
Yum those look good! Especially since I’m on day 3 of a week long sugar detox. Today has been the worst of it so far. I would eat that whole plate of cookies- hot with milk-right now!! Hope your prep is going okay-I’ve been thinking about you today!
How often do you not eat anything “today??”
making those tomorrow! thanks 🙂
I remember when my mom had to drink that stuff. She did NOT enjoy it. Good luck, and it will all be over soon and then you can EAT!
These look absolutely tasty and sinful. I <3 it.
I am gluten free and I am making these TOMORROW!!!! Thank you so much!
I am going to continue to pretend that these are “health” bar cookies as I originally read…make them and then eat these healthy suckers for breakfast.
These sound sinfully delicious!! Thanks for sharing. My sweet tooth appreciates it :).
These sound amazing! I just made the turkey, sweet potato, and spinach hash for dinner tonight and it was delicious!
Oh those look incredible! My mom’s favorite candy bar is a Heath bar and with Mother’s Day coming up, these might be a fabulous sweet treat for her…Thanks for sharing the recipe!
These look good! I love that one of the first comments was asking about using actual rum, classic!
Those looks amazing: the first reflex that comes to mind is “They look so good, they CANNOT be healthy.”
Of course I do not mind being proven wrong…
Could you use garbanzo bean flour instead of almond flour?
YUM!! These will be fun to make!
Having trouble finding rum extract – any suggestions for a substitute, or is it OK to just leave it out?
You could probably leave it out. Most grocery stores sell it with the vanilla extract/baking goods.
I am officially going to the grocery store today, I need to make these ASAP! I have never seen rum extract, but maybe if I used actual rum it would suffice?
If I don’t have almond flour and coconut oil, do you know what other baking ingredients can be used to substitute these?
Do you think you could sub regular flour for the Almond flour?
These look delicious!
I think I’d work! 🙂
These look wicked good! I think I might add homemade caramel to them instead of the Heath bar. I love your blog!
Yum! My hubby loves home-made cookies. I’ll make them coming monday. Almond meal and coconut oil are a great combination.
Thanks a lot for the recipe 🙂
I made these cookies for a holiday cookie swap. They are amazing! Everyone loved them.
