  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract


  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar


  • In a medium mixing bowl add all-purpose flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Use a whisk to combine.
  • In a separate medium mixing bowl add vegetable oil, light brown sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, and almond extract. Use a whisk to combine. 
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir to combine.
  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour or more. 
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with a silpat liner, or parchment paper.
  • Remove the cookie dough from the refrigerator. Then form 1 tbsp sized cookie balls using a 1 tbsp cookie scoop.
  • Drop the cookie dough balls into a small bowl filled with 1/2 cup powdered sugar. Roll the balls to ensure all sides are covered.
  • Place each ball on the baking sheet evenly spaced apart. These cookies won't spread much so you can space them about an inch apart. 
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let cool for 2 to 3 minutes before moving cookies to a wire cooling rack.
